Designating Flag, 3rd Division, 22nd Army Corps

Description
Rectangular wool bunting flag. White field with a blue pentagonal cross in the center of the flag. Reinforcement squares of fabric on both hoist corners. White cotton hoist is hand-stitched and has a metal grommet at each end. Lengthwise seams are machine-stitched and flat-felled.
