This is a lovely big cotton signal flag K.
Our flags were salvaged from merchant ships many years ago. They are international signal flags used by ships at sea. Nearly all maritime nations recognise the same flag signal alphabet. They were used to spell out short messages to each other between ships.
Strung end to end and hung bow to stern from the rigging they were used to dress up ships for cermonmial and festive occaisions.
Today they make great coastal home decor and are meant to stand up to the ocean winds. They are all sewn, not printed, and this one is made from a cotton blend. Strong & light-weight.
This one had a slight tear/section removed on one bottom corner. However, it has been sewn up neatly.
measures 132cm x 167cm
