BRITISH UNION OF FASCISTS BANNER.
An extremely rare artefact of the political turmoil of the 1930’s in Europe being the 30 inch x 20½ inch or 82cm x 63cm banner that was hung from the carrying banner pole and banner top. The flag was flown from a banner top very similar to the Germany Awake banner top of the Third Reich incorporating the same lightning flash insignia surrounded by a laurel leaf with a pointed finial with the box below having the wording ‘BRITISH UNION’. The scarlet ribbed material backing cloth with applied laurel leaf with the central British Union of Fascists device of a white lightning bolt, the banner is edged with blue and white coloured thread tassels. The reverse has a plain backing cloth. The eight suspension straps are all complete and are secured with two press studs to each loop. The banner has seen much service and it is with some slight discoloration of flooding of colour from the red backing material onto the white laurel leaf, also minor staining and service wear but no damage. We last owned one of these flags over 30 years ago.
