Written by SDMJanuary 5, 2015January 18, 2015 Men Sewing Flags A little counter-point to the last posting. Images of men sewing flags can be found, just not as easily. Here are some. (Click on the photos below for original context as found on the web.) “Paul Servos, co-owner of the Flag Shop, practices a technique called applique-sewing, in which an image is sewn onto both sides of a flag to give the impression of a flat image.” From article in the CFB Esquimalt Lookout: Navy News Online, March 25, 2013. “Man sewing new flag for Communist regime in Vietnam. Hannoi 10-1954”. “Tailor in Berbera in the northwestern Somaliland region of Somalia sewing the regional flag.” Photo by Alfred Weidinger, 2011. A British sailor uses a sewing machine to repair a signal flag on board the armed merchant cruiser HMS ALCANTARA en route to Sierra Leone, 1942. Photo by Cecil Beaton. Crown Copyright, Imperial War Museum. “A Gift to the Nation” by Tom Browning. “A Moslem tailor hurries to finish the star-and-crescent flag of new Pakistan.” Photograph by David Duncan Douglas, published in LIFE Magazine, August 18, 1947. Note pakistaniflagmaker.page.tl claims the man in the photo was Altaf Hussain.
