[WW II] Gold Star Flags

I am seeking information on the Gold Star Flags issued by the U.S. Government during the the Repatriation of American World War II Dead between 1945 and 1950. I suspect these flags with their gold stars were manufactured in the Philadelphia Quartermaster Depot but I can't prove that.

I would appreciate any information dealing with these flags' manufacture and use -- and especially assistance in locating sources on this subject.
