48 all GOLD STAR US Flag - anyone?

Post by John G. » 05 Oct 2010 22:37

Usually I humbly try to answer the questions....this time I'm the one asking.....anyone ever heard of an American WW 2
regular 48 stars & bars flag except the stars (all of them) are GOLD color. Did "The Gold Star Mothers" or some similiar
organizations use such a flag? I've been around awhile and have never heard of one, I could propose a few possibilities....
but anyone with any real information? Supposedly WW 2 vintage all the way (could be just after, of course...), but haven't seen it myself, for a friend.....
thanks in advance....

I once was told that I was vain, but I knew that vanity was a fault, so I gave it up because I have no faults.

Replying to an old post.

Yes I have a US 48 "Gold Star" casket/burial flag. And the history of the flag.

I also have a 48 star flag with all 48 gold/yellow stars sewn on with zigzag stitches. I don't have any history on it but I would love to hear the history of yours as well. Thank you in advance.
