NORTH KOREAN WAR FLAG.
North Korea: Inscribed and dated 1950-51.
A small rayon North Korean flag. 470 x 930 mm. The flag inscribed in ink, "To Cyril the best camp ... who came to Korea 1950...," and further signed around the central star by 14 other American serviceman ?pilots, many of whom signed and dated, Tokyo, 1951. The flag badly damaged and stained with moth holes.

A rare North Korean flag, probably captured in the first few months of the campaign in Korea, which started in September 1950, with the invasion at Incheon. The UN forces (90% American) moved north into North Korea, only to be pushed back in late October with the counter attacks made by massive Chinese forces, who joined in North Korea's defense.
