Dear Erica,

Thank you for getting in touch. We are glad you were able to find more information about your flag on our blog. We are most certainly interested in seeing a photo. Please send via email to ylaxton[@]srmml.org.

Hello,

We were doing inventory of California Chapter Order of the Eastern Star Wild Lily #18 and found a similar flag with 8 stars. Since we weren't sure what it was for, I posted it to social media asking for ideas. A veteran and friend of mine suggested it was a blue star flag.
So when searching blue star flags and Masons, I found your blog post. I think we have likely found what the flag is for now.. Although I don't know how I'd trace WEI or WWII origin.
The one we have doesn't have any masonic imagery, just the red border worth white and 8 stars.
If you're interested I'm happy to send a photo.
