    Henry Clay: A Huge 51" Portrait Flag Banner for the 1844 Whig Candidate for President. Along with its Polk & Dallas mate, the largest portrait flag design listed by Collins in Threads of History! This impressive banner is in very good overall display condition, as the photo shows. As is usually the case with flags of this era the red has faded, although the stripes are clearly defined; the blue is very strong. There are scattered light, unobtrusive bits of soiling and staining, though in this regard it is above average for a flag of this era, and indeed shows far less staining than the Collins plate example. There are a few very small and utterly inconsequential holes, and one larger one measuring 1.25" x 2.75" in the upper right. It is the plate example from Hake's 1789 - 1916 book, page 35 (although rather ineffectively imaged). 51" x 30".
