Brief Description
Olympic flag, flown at the swimming stadium during the 1956 Olympic Games. Signed by members of the USA, Canadian, Australian, and other Olympic teams, for Australian diver Frank Murphy, who competed at these Games. The flag was later autographed by subsequent Olympians, with autographs dating until the 2004 Olympic Games. Accompanying the flag is a fabric case (much like a pillow case).
