- Item Not Available
We have a limited quantity of 49 Star Silk Flags available 100 FLAGS. These were removed from damaged sticks. They measure 8 x 12 and are in excellent condition, circa 1959. They have tiny holes in left side corners where they were once attached to a flimsy stick. This is barely noticeable and does not detract from these beautiful flags. These would be ideal for wall decor, party favors, promotions, give-aways, decorative banners, craft projects, etc. This is a rare form of the US flag. Alaska, the 49th state, entered the union on January 3, 1959. Hawaii, the 50th state, obtained statehood on August 21, 1959. The 49 star flag was officially used only between July 4, 1959, and July 4, 1960.
