Island of Sark Nautical Pennant
This is an original item made from cotton overlaid with a red motif showing 2 separate rampant lions stitched to the top left corner. It has its original line and toggle attachment.
Whilst its origins were unknown when purchased we have been advised this represents the personal standard of Dame Sibyl Hathaway who was Seigneur of the Channel Island of Sark during the Second World War Occupation. She gave permission for the island to use it when the Island Games were started and it has been the island flag ever since.
It features a white background with the red Cross of St George, which is a common theme through the Channel Islands flags. The red canton in the upper left corner contains two yellow lions. This is similar to the arms of Normandy, which the Channel Islands were part of until 1204.
The pennant measures 30"x 8" (33 cm x 21- cm) and is in good flown condition.
