Handmade Car Flag

Cape Verde 1977

Small hand-made U.S. flag, for flying on an official’s car, used by the government of Cape Verde during Ambassador Edward Marks’ presentation of credentials ceremony in October 1977. A factory-manufactured flag was not available, so embassy staff in charge of protocol substituted one that was hand-stitched.
