The Armored Car Division 'Sverdlov'...another rare original example to come out. Interesting construction with real gold thread being used.

One of the most famous units during the Russian Civil War, the 212th Rifle Regiment. Note the bright yellow thread that has been used.

Re: Guide to Honorary Rev. Red Banner 1920-24

These are part of cloth collecting I at least have a basic grasp of.;)

Absolutely great set!:thumbsup My personal favorite is the 212 rifle regiment flag with the ole hammer & plow symbol. I think even Elvis would have liked it with all that velvet.:chuckle Joking aside, I've always been impressed with the velvet banners (large or small), despite their weight.

Which brings me to my question: how do you store or display these (or are they just passing through)?

Phillip

Re: Guide to Honorary Rev. Red Banner 1920-24

Eric,

Glad you like them, to me they were always amongst the most striking of Red Army unit flags...sort of the ‘father’ of all Red Army unit flags to come.

Phil,

I have only had two originals in my hands, the rest of the photos are of examples in museums. As for the two originals, storage depends on the flag itself... The Voronezh example has a painted obverse, and thus folding is not good for it...to be honest it stays flat hanging on a wall...luckily I have convinced the girlfriend it’s “art”. The Sverdlov example can stay folded as it its simply embroidered and the folding will not do it great damage.

Always looking for more photos of these in use or in museums!
