Flag dimensions: 74" hoist X 77" fly.

(2002.001)



This blue silk regimental color carried by the 140th Regiment NY Volunteer Infantry features a painted Arms and motto of the United States complete with regimental identification painted on the lower ribbon. Approximately 1/3 of the flag is missing, mostly from fly edge. The flag was sandwiched between nylon net in 1962 and blue compensation fabric was added at that time to disguise the losses to the fly.
