Vintage Circus Tent Flag, Ringling

About

These vintage circus flags come from the days of the Ringling, Barnum and Bailey Big Top Circus, when traveling tents were still transported and raised at hundreds of locations across the country. The flags are handmade and show signs of some previous repairs and staining, but are in excellent shape overall. They were made sometime between 1920-50 and would have traveled along with all the performers in the heydays of the American circus. Each cotton flag has two metal grommets for use.
