I just found an original Iraqi Saddam era flag to replace the one I brought back, which my ex got rid of for me on one of my patrols. It is not the same, as it does not have any history for me, but it is a real deal and will make an excellent back drop to my display.

It is fairly high quality and made from a silk like material. The stars and script are painted on. The flag is for indoor use. It has provisions for a flag staff to be inserted through it.

Paul,
Nice flag!! It's too bad your ex got rid of the other one as like you say, you can never replace the original.

I know. Ironically, she certainly found that she could be(replaced).

Here is a close up of the painted script.
Very well executed, unlike the bring back(true "battle flags") that were found in the field/outdoors.
