Origin: British
Period: Early-Twentieth Century
Provenance: Unknown
Date: c.1911
Height: 26 inches

The printed Coronation flag in soft thin cotton showing George and Mary depicted center within a floral circular framed border amongst scrolls, insignia and Royal Arms.

The textile is in excellent condition with a slight fade across the fabric but remaining very vibrant. There are no holes to report and the condition is good considering the age.

George V (George Frederick Ernest Albert; 3 June 1865 – 20 January 1936) was the first British monarch belonging to the House of Windsor. The coronation took place at Westminster Abbey on 22 June 1911 and was celebrated by the Festival of Empire in London. As well as being King of the United Kingdom and the other Commonwealth Realms, George was the Emperor of India and the first King of the Irish Free State. George reigned from 6 May 1910 through World War I (1914–1918) until his death.

This is a scarce flag that hailed the end of the Edwardian period and it could be used to brighten up, and add history to, any number of spaces, but most importantly be kept and cherished for years to come.
