The bottom-left pennant is from Bill Topkis. Notice the small bear patch just above the pennant. The pennant came with the bear patch clipped to the pennant. If you look really close, you may see the clip at the top.
Bill Topkis comments:
"The pennant came with the bear patch attached by a paper clip. My experience with badges like the bear is that it is a "stock" patch (could be ordered out of a catalog by anyone) and that it probably was for some camp achievement."
Ed Dworak notes that he believes at one time the 1929 button was clipped onto the 1929 pennant. The pennants are not shown to scale. Notice the letters on the 1920/1930s pennant are identical to the letters on the 1929. If you expand the image size by two or three sizes, you get a really good view of the pennant fabric.
The bottom-right banner is from Doug Walker. Doug writes:
"The banner is made of felt, and is probably from the 1930’s since the color scheme is the same purple/yellow that was used on the pennant we have already identified as likely being from the 1930s. The other banner I have is Sakawawin and Randy Holden seems to think that one is circa 1950's based on the graphics. The reason I think the Pahaquarra banner is 1930's is because the color scheme matches the pennant from the 1930's with the yellow and purple. Pahaquarra moved to a blue/white theme for the later 1930s and 1940s and then adopted the gwc camp patch with rockers in the early 1950s."
The pennants and banner are definitely not shown to scale. The top-right pennant length is less than half the length of the bottom-right pennant. It's nice to see the 1971 pennant refer back to 1921 Rotary Island.
