Funeral of Miss Anne Stamp

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 http://www.loc.gov/pictures/resource/ppmsca.15709/  suggests that they are images of stamps. Does anyone know whether that is correct?

Thank you!

Query: Help locating an editorial cartoon on the 1921 Emergency Quota Act

Hi: I am hoping to use crowd sourcing to solve a riddle: Sometime in the early 1920s there was an editorial cartoon published about the Emergency Quota Act of 1921.  It shows a doe-eyed child at Ellis Island alone on one side of a gate, and hundreds of admitted immigrants on the other side of the gate.
