Unfortunately this grand assortment of flags from America's past came without explanatory text - or maybe that's fortunate. Might make a challenging research project for a young historian. Cloth flags, about 4" x 6" (sizes vary slightly), on 10-1/2" gold plastic staffs. They even come from a U.S. manufacturer! Not all are U.S. national flags, but as near as we can tell all are part of American history. You'll get a shipment of (5) different flags. Wave on!
