Pennants, Banners, and Patches

[Pennant]

History

These are most of the vintage pennants (triangular shape) and banners (rectangular shape) I have in my collection. There are even a few patches. I try to keep up to date with currently offered styles from the campus store, but I haven't scanned those yet.

The Images

All pennants are photographed with a ruler nearby to give a sense of scale. I apologize for the unprofessional-looking background, but I have limited room in a well-lit area to take photographs of large items.
