Presented is a vintage United States Air Force Academy pennant flag from the 1960s. This felt flag features the academy mascot name "Falcons" across the body. A round Air Force Academy emblem is shown left with the words "Air Force Academy" in yellow stitching and a falcon in mid flight in the center of the emblem.
In 1955, the first students enrolled in the Air Force Academy. That same year the to-be academy went under construction. It wasn’t until 1958 that the academy site was ready for occupancy making this pennant one of the first from the initial years the academy doors were opened. Additionally, the Cold War was well underway and the military power of the U.S. Air Force was instrumental in the war. The young men at the academy at the time this pennant was made, would have graduated and had an immediate role in the conflicts of the time.
Felt pennant in very good condition with vibrant coloring throughout. White ties at hoist end. No significant tears or wear visible. Archivally mounted and framed in a custom gold and black frame.
Framed Dimensions: 16" H x 30 ¾” W x 1 ¾” D.
