Mr. Kirsch,
I was wondering if you could help me identify this flag/pendent.
I “believe” that it may be nautical.
It was found with WW2 Japanese and German items.
It has no markings on it.

Thank you for your expertise

Answer
My apologies for the delay. I am not familiar with the flag other than to guess it's a yacht club burgee. I posted the picture to the Flags of the World mailing list (where we "experts" all hang out) but got no answer. Seems to be pretty obscure. Sorry I can't do better by you. If I hear anything I'll let you know.

Expertise

I am more-or-less expert in vexillology (the study of flags). My expertise is particularly strong in North America at the level of city and county, but if I don`t know the answer I know a dozen people who do. So if there`s a flag in the newspaper or on TV that you have trouble identifying, let me know. I`ll do my best. But PLEASE DO NOT ASK ME TO APPRAISE A FLAG'S VALUE: (1) I have no expertise in that area and (2) even if I did, I cannot appraise something I can't see. Take it to a museum which has a specialist in textiles and the like.

Experience

In this field, I designed the flag of Carroll County, Illinois, in 1974 (see http://www.internetni.com/~lanarklib/index.html). You can see my personal flag at http://www.nava.org/memflags.htm
