About

This is a beautifully preserved WWII Navy aircraft carrier banner, emblazoned with a welcome for the ship's firemen. Thirteen white stars feature in this patriotic piece of WWII and Navy history. The banner is partially printed and has hand-sewn elements to make for an eclectic feel. The flag field is blue, with red and white stripes at both top and bottom. At the top of the banner is printed the name J.S. Sullivan. The flag measures 36" X 22". Expertly framed on black linen with an antiqued black wood frame to highlight the spectacular color of this rare banner. Enclosed behind UV plexiglass to preserve the piece for years to come.
