These are all "real" flags (as in actually used as flags for buildings, ships, offices, etc rather than the common cheap printed flags you get at the swap meet or the Bud-K catalog). They have all been used and most show some wear and/or soiling from use. If you need a flag that's in perfect condition, you won't find very many here. Some soiling may clean up and some damage is repairable, but I prefer to leave these as I get them. If you'd like a flag to display that's been around and seen real use, then I might have something you'd like.

All prices include US shipping. For international shipping add $10 per order (not per flag). AK47 bayonet in the photos is for scale, it's about 12.5" (and not included of course). Payment by PP, cash, check, M.O. Trades also considered. Local pick up in Tucson, AZ can be arranged.

I collect flags, but I have limited space so I'm thinning out my collection a bit. I have some historical, rare and unusual flags that will look great in your man-cave, gun room, display or where ever you'd like to use them. Some of these are relevant to display with your AKs and/or other guns.

7/20/13: To make browsing easier and reduce clutter, I changed the photos of the sold flags to links.

8/15/13: Added some more flags (#22-34) and reduced prices on the unsold flags.

8/26/13: Prices reduced on remaining flags.

17. Saudi Arabia, Kingdom of
Home made embroidered flag. Someone put a lot of work into making this, probably fairly old, at least pre-1973 when the design changed slightly (see below). Someone has stapled a tag that has a translation of the Arabic writing "The is no God but Allah, and Mohammed is His messenger". Not just a flag but a real work of art. Some small holes from being pinned up.
$35 (SPF)

18. Saudi Arabia, Kingdom of
Current flag. Printed, heavy duty plastic hoist clips. No damage.
$30





19. United States of America, "76" flag
Replica of the Revolutionay War "76" flag carried at the Battle of Bennington, made during the US bicentennial in 1976. Sturdy flag with brass grommets. Unlike the other flags listed here, I don't know that this one was ever really used for anything but display. But a nice flag from the birth of America.
$23



20. United States Army
Guidon for "HQ & A" , Vietnam war era.
$26 (SOLD)

21. Iraqi Mahdi Militia headband
This one's not a flag, but close enough. No damage. Rare item.
$35




Newly Listed, 8/15/13:

22. United States of America, 48 Stars
Lots of heavy use with damage and repairs. I don't know if it's been on the battle front, but it sure looks the part. Great for a WWII or Korean War display.
$48 (SOLD)

23. Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, "Transferable Red Banner of the Socialist Emulation Winner".
Red velvet(?) skillfully hand painted, with 4 loops for mounting. Paint shows some cracking as can be expected from being on soft fabric, but still looks good. "Socialist emulation was voluntary everywhere where people worked or served: in industry, in agriculture, in offices, institutions, schools, hospitals, army, etc. With the natural exception of armed force, committees of Soviet trade unions were in charge of managing the socialist emulation." This flag would be awarded to groups who exceed their peers in being good commies. If a different group won later, the banner would be transferred to the new winner, which is why these are called "Transferable". Comes with translation card.
$110













24. Croatia, Republic of
Sewn construction with printed emblem sewn on. One side is dirty, the other side is OK. writing on the bunting.
$38









25. Egypt, Arab Republic of
Some soiling, slight wind damage to a fly edge. Writing on the bunting.
$38 (SOLD)

27. Russian Federation
Current Russian flag. This one was on a ship and has some soiling from exhaust.
$32







28. Lebanese Republic
Long flag from a ship. Hoist end is grey from exhaust.
$40









29. Mozambique, Republic of
The only national flag with an AK on it. Wind damage to one corner. Writing on the bunting.
$38









30. United Kingdom, Red Ensign
Writing on bunting, moderate soling from normal use. Formerly the Royal Navy's flag, now used by the merchant fleet. Nicknamed the "Red Duster" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:INF3- ... rtress.jpg
$50





31. Sri Lanka, Democratic Socialist Republic of
Rather colorful flag. This one has some stains, probably from shipboard use. Might clean up, but I leave them the way I get 'em. Writing on bunting.
$45









32. Syrian Arab Republic
Perhaps a soon to be obsolete flag design. White area shows a lot of dirt, writing on the bunting. Fine for hanging on the wall, but the lower rope of the hoist has been cut, so it can't be used that way as-is.
$38







33. Korea, Republic of (South Korea)
Long flag. Writing on the bunting.
$38







34. Japan, Imperial Army
Differs from the Navy flag as the sun on the Army flag is centered, while the sun on the Navy flag is off set towards the hoist. Original WWII or earlier flag.
$160

More flags listed, prices reduced on unsold flags.
These will also be listed on a Militaria collectors forum, in the unlikely event 2 folks want the same flag, time stamp rules.
