This is a wonderful item that could have been used many different ways. It measures 13″ x 17 1/4.” The material is a fine cotton. A high-quality kriegsflagge replica has been embroidered onto it. To the flag’s right, embroidered in yellow, red, white, and black, is the saying “Stolzweht die Flagge schwarz weiss rot” (Proudly flies the flag black white red). It is very attractive. Only your imagination limits how it may be used. You could even use it as a place mat. Break out your Imperial German place setting and enjoy your knockwurst and sauerkraut in style!
