Early College Football Cheering Flags

Early college football games brought crowds that are in general much better dressed than those that attend the games today. Case in point is the cover of the Harvard-Yale Game from 1903 pictured below. Also of note in the program are the early football cheering flags pictured. These silk flags are highly collectible.

Below is a vintage Yale silk cheering flag which measures 17″ x 12″ and rolls up and fits into a tube with brass cap ends that is 14 1/2 inches long. You pull the flag out and insert the end of the flag pole into the tube. The flag stored measures 14 1/2″ long. Once pulled out and inserted the pole measures 26 3/4″ long

A Dartmouth flag is pictured below:
