German Italian Friendship flag about 4 feet

Recommended Posts

Well, that is something you do not see every day. Considering how the war ended for Italy, I would  guess not many of these survived.

“But I don’t want to go among mad people," Alice remarked.
"Oh, you can’t help that," said the Cat: "we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad."
"How do you know I’m mad?" said Alice.
"You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldn’t have come here.”

It was from a museum in Connecticut but were they souvenirs For GIs or really for German/Italian axis?

I would say the answer is in the type of textile....was this style of flag made ( I am assuming 1934 or later) in such a cloth as yours is?

Very interesting. I've never seen a large one like that. I and several others around here have hankie sized things like this with 6 alternating flags.  We never came up with exactly what they were for. I believe my Uncle AJ said he got the one he gave me while serving in North Africa 1942-43.
