Description

IC0120

A liberty loan flag, circa 1917-1918 and a victory flag, circa 1918-1919.  Both are blue fabric over white with red boarders. These banners were part of the public relations surrounding the raising of public funds in support of Word War I.  Fundraising often took the form of public parades, but the outbreak of the Spanish Flu pandemic resulted in the cancellation of many of these parades.
