MASSIVE COLLECTION OF WORLD WAR II LIBERATION FLAGS.
inv # 02-12989
This Collection consists of 71 flags, almost all identified to the town they were made. Each flag tells an individual story of World War II.
Possibly the only time in history where non-Americans were motivated to produce flags in celebration of the United States. After the D-Day landings in June 1944, American & Allied troops started their inward movement into France to liberate Paris & the newly liberated French people made American & other allied flags from materials that were available to greet troops who were conquering Nazi occupied territory.
These flags no doubt are among the most unusual & unique & aesthetically pleasing of any group of American flags. All of these flags have been purchased over many years, mostly by the late well known flag collector & historian Bruce Smith.
