[Pennant]: Knights of the Ku Klux Klan

[Circa 1920s].

Price: $400.00

Unbound. Felt pennant measuring 27 inches in length. Maroon felt with white lettering reading "KKKK Invisible Empire" and has an illustration of a hooded Klansman on a horse holding a fiery torch. Very good with some frayed edges and creasing. This pennant is from the second incarnation of the Klan, 1915 - 1944 founded in Atlanta, Georgia. At this time the KKK adopted a new persona as a "fraternal organization" and preached "One Hundred Percent Americanism." They used merchandise such as this pennant to encourage white pride between members. The four "Ks" on the pennant stand for "Knights of the Ku Klux Klan" sometimes referred to as "white knights." Although KKK pennants can be found, this particular design appears to be scarce.
