I love cloth flags and banners of Queen, and especially those of Freddie. I bought the following on eBay, and it is beautiful - two feet wide by six feet tall. http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c138/carboengine/ebayfmbanner-1.jpg I asked the seller in Australia for the history of this banner, but I got no reply. Does anyone know when and where this was issued? Before or after Freddie died? Was it available in music stores? In two years of diligently scanning eBay just about every day, I have only seen this banner twice. Does anyone know the history of Freddie's statue in Montreux, Switzerland, with this same classic pose? How did it come about?


Yes, it was a worthwhile experience.
