These two silk swallowtail guidons conform to the “stars and stripes” pattern prescribed in General Order No. 4, dated January 18, 1862. Both flags were sewn between two layers of nylon netting in the mid-1970s matching the colors of the flag with different colors of net. The lighter areas of netting show areas of loss in the original flag.
