Funeral of Miss Anne Stamp

Eva Sheppard's picture

Dear Colleagues,

Yesterday in class I showed the British political cartoon, "The repeal, or funeral of Miss Anne Stamp." A student asked what the flags were that the two men at the front of the funeral procession are carrying. I could not easily find a definitive answer so am turning to you. This version of the image at this url  suggests that they are images of stamps. Does anyone know whether that is correct?

Thank you!
