Offered is a hand sewn banner, dating to the World War II era (1939-1945).  It includes a large red “V” symbolizing victory.  It further includes the following overprint: HERE’S TO THE ARMY AND NAVY, AND THE BATTLES THEY HAVE WON, HERE’S TO AMERICA’S COLORS—THE COLORS THAT NEVER RUN.  Below this text, the banner includes three dots and a dash, meant to represent a “V” in Morse code.  This is the best “V for Victory” banner that we have ever encountered, in part because it is hand sewn and in part because of its great patriotic message. 

Such a banner is similar to a service flag. In the United States, a service flag is an official banner that a family of a service member displays.  Service flags were first displayed during World War I, and have been displayed in every US war since.  Typically, service flags include a red border surrounding a rectangular white field, and the rectangular white field surrounds a blue star.  The blue star is representative of a family member serving in the Armed Forces of the United States.           

Mounting: This banner was hand sewn to cotton fabric, and both were hand sewn to a mounting board.  To prevent the black dye in the cotton fabric from seeping into the banner, it was first washed in a standard wash and then in a dye setting wash.  The banner is positioned behind a UV resistant acrylic, and spaced apart therefrom using spacers. 

Frame: This offering is in our Medium Brown with Gold Accents Frame.  However, it can be reframed and would look great using any one of our Medium Frames, which are shown in the final image.  The pricing associated with the different framing options may vary.  Reframing of an offering may delay shipment by up to two weeks.    

Condition: This banner is in excellent condition.
