FLAGS AND SYMBOLS FROM 1800 TO 1900 CENTURY
This rare old flag came from the estate of a US Army WW2 veteran. It is clearly a flipino flag and according to the last owner it likely dates from the Japanese occupation 1942-1944. It is a particular modification of the National flag, with a hand-embroidered face to the sun design. The size is 6 feet in length by 30".
In reality, we must say that this flag is more old than the previous owner said ; it's an old flag resurrected by the Filipinos who fought with the Americans against the Japanese.
The flag is now in the Philippines in the private collection of Edwin Bautista.
