Ok, it is 34" x 56", sewn *star* and blue field on a 2 piece red field . The base material is that old type cotton.wool blend(course,kind of itchy)lol!! found on US flags from WW2 era, like from the **Minuteman** flag here I also have.
2 grommets... No name of manufacture on bunting at all. (Bulldog,Valley Forge) etc.No markings.

There's no way to date these exactly (unless marked otherwise) since the flag for Nationalist China/Taiwan is identical, as you know....so you can only go by the materials and construction. From the Photo, based on the bunting & gromets, I'd say this is a US made flag.....probably WW2 but no later than "early 1950s"......I've owned a few WW2 Chinese made Flags, most are very thin, printed, with corner ties or laces....even quality ones wouldn't normally have Gromets (pretty much US-only method of "mounting" until 1950s)....
Remember durning WW2 every Ralley or Bond Drive would have multipals of the "Allied Nations" Flags displayed....each included a National's Chinese Flag ......I'd bet this is one of them!:
I'd have no quams calling it a "WW 2 US made Chinese National Flag" (Nationalist China/Taiwan) made for "Bond Drives" and the like.
