Lot 8085

Enormous 24-foot-tall Olympic flag flown at Olympiapark during the Munich 1972 Summer Games. The blue cotton flag, approximately 8.9 feet by 24 feet, features white Olympic rings next to the famed Munich Olympic logo, a ‘Strahlenkranz’ design by Otl Aicher that merged the sun and five Olympic rings into a spiral shape that created an optical illusion. Left edge bears nine metal clasps. In very good to fine condition, with wear from use, including some scattered stains and small tears and holes.

Estimate: $400-$600
