Romanian Flags

Managed to find a couple of intact Romanian flags from the Communist period that I thought I'd post. The first is from the RSR period and shows the final version of the State seal. A small flag, probably 1 1/2 to 2 feet horizontally, made of synthetic silk with fringe. As it is two-ply, the seal is correct reading on both sides. The construction of the flag indicates it was meant for indoor use.

The second image shows the final version of the State seal, silk screened and typically "out of register" for a mass-produced item.

Re: Romanian Flags

This next flag is the only RPR flag I've seen to date. Country of origin is in doubt as it was salvaged from the flag locker of an English merchant ship that was decommissioned and, as such, is fitted for naval use. The flag is quite large, about 3 feet by 4 1/2 feet, and made of a material no longer used- wool bunting. The seal was silk screened on a separate, oval shaped piece and sewn-in. It is "right-reading" on one side, with the back being a mirror image. Note that the star is screened over the sun rays... this star may have been added at a later date since the original seal did not have a star.

One of my cats, Pumpkin, wandered into the shot, facinated by the lanyard.

The second image is the seal... near perfect registration of the silk screened image indicates this was probably a "one-off" piece and not mass produced. You can see the sun rays through the star better in this image.

RSR State Flag

Hi to all.

I just receive a RSR State flag wich came from Bucharest and I am very excited about it because it`s my first romanian flag:D Even though it`s not an "official flag" and made for every day use I`m still very satisfied with this acquisition.

Here are some pictures, It shows some heavy signs of use.

Any oppinions, sugestions, etc. are most welcome :thumbsup
