#BS20 WWII 3rd Canadian Infantry Division Headquarters Flag
Impressive and unique one of a kind WWII 3rd Canadian Infantry Division headquarters flag.  Constructed of French-grey heavy cotton twill with re-enforced edges and individual cotton ribbon ties, large yellow cotton twill Canadian maple leafs are zig-zag stitched to the centre of each side.  We are not aware of any other examples in existence.  This iconic flag would have been flown by the Headquarters of the 3rd Canadian Division which played a major role in the invasion of Normandy.  This flag would be the centrepiece of any 3rd Division display, collection, or museum. The condition of the flag is overall excellent, there are a few spots of fading likely from being folded and near lighting or sun but it's not bad enough to detract.  The lightly faded areas are visible in the photos.  There are no rips, tears, or repairs.  The flag is well constructed with re-enforced folded edges.  The ties are all present and strongly attached to the flag itself.  Flag was originally sold at auction by a Canadian Legion many years ago.  Unique, don't miss your opportunity if this is something that interests you. $1750
