Let your flags fly! May we present to you for Rare Item Monday this Rare Black and Red Flag?

Flags were invented by Egyptians in 1000 BC. They were made of painted wood or metal used to identify troops or clans at a distance.

There’s even a way of communicating with flags called ‘semaphore’ (sem-a-for). A special flag is held in each hand and different positions of the arms indicate a letter of the alphabet. This was an especially effective way to share messages between ships.
