Description


Very rare and impressive official presidential flag of the finest handcrafted quality, used in the White House during the administrations of four US presidents between 1969 and 1989. The beautiful double-sided rayon flag measures 50″ x 36″ (approximately 4´ x 3´), and is bordered by 3″ heavy silver-and-gold metallic fringe on three edges (no longer used after c. 1970). Each side displays an incredibly detailed, colorful, hand-embroidered presidential seal. Within the sleeve of the flag is a typed label reading, “Flag, Individual, President / Rayon With Silver Gold Fringe Bullion, 3 ft. x 4 ft. Type II Head / DSA 100-69-C-0738-8345-570-9887 / Olympia Specialties Inc.” Soft leather loops are hidden inside the sleeve at either end. In very fine condition, with a barely visible snag in dark blue field.

This flag was in service at the White House under Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, and Ronald Reagan before being acquired by the consignor through a White House connection when the flag was officially retired and replaced for the incoming George H. W. Bush administration in January 1989. A nearly impossible to acquire White House artifact—seldom does such an exceptional example of presidential history become available.
