Parade Flags / Hand-Wavers

Views: 2938 Added: 04/10/2009 Updated: 04/10/2009
Parade Flags / Hand-Wavers — Flags that were made by silk screening or stamp-printing ink dye or paint onto cotton, silk, wool, paper, or rayon. Such flags were intended for one day’s use at a parade, political event, military reunion, or some other rally. They were typically tacked or glued to a wooden staff. Parade flags were often discarded or destroyed, so some early examples are rare. They come in sizes ranging from about 1 1⁄2 inches to 5 feet in length, although most are smaller than 3 feet in length. Today they are typically printed on nylon, polyester, plastic, or cotton. SEE ALSO sewn flags and  press-dyed flags.
