I've got a picture of a pilot with his hand on the victory board, so I can maybe infer the size of the flags.

I think some of those flags were decals. But, that really doesn't matter. Just trying to verify the size.

one for the white flag base, another for the red sunrise.

Have any unused decals survived? Any displayed at a museum?

Just found a quote from David McCampbell (Top Navy Ace): "Yes, both the names and the kills were on both sides as they had been on Minsi II. The kills were stickers rather than being painted on."
