This Vintage Letter P Papa was removed from a vessel being cut up for scrap. This flag is exactly like it was when it was found, it has not been washed. These large flags make a great wall hanging in coastal themed areas.
P: Papa – The Blue Peter.
In harbour: All persons should report on board as the vessel is about to proceed to sea.
This flag measures 50 inches wide and 63 inches long.
On the flag-pole side of the flag, on one corner there is a brass hook connected to a small rope loop, and on the other corner, there is a short section of rope with a brass hook on the end. There is some slight fraying around some of the edges, one corner shown is the worst.
Shown in the photos are one side of the nautical signal flag, and a close-up of the fibers of the fabric, and a corner showing some fraying.
