Here is a picture of the American flag I helped to make in the prisons of Hanoi.
The materials are all scrapes of old clothing, the threads were pulled out of towels and blankets. The needle we used was a piece of old wire found outside in our courtyard. One end was scrapped on the concrete floor to make the point. The other end was flattened with a rock and then a hole was punched thru it the form the eye.
The flag was presented to President Nixon at the dinner party he had for the POWs upon our return. It turned out to be the largest dinner party ever at the White House.
The flag is now in the Nixon Library in a display for the Vietnam POWs.
