FLAGS #44690C Political Velvet Wall Tapestry
This velvet wall tapestry is a tremendous looking fabric which is basically a deep rich background depicting a golden political eagle with half opened wings clutching a wreathed swastika. The oak leaves and the wing feathering of the eagle have black highlights which really accentuate the depiction. The black swastika within the wreath is depicted against a white field background.
The serious face in the eagle's head looks to the viewer's left. Three sides of the red velvet are hemmed and on the bottom there are 8 inch long white fringe. This wall tapestry measures 60 inches by 40 inches. There is a tunnel hoist at the top where apparently a rod was used to hang the banner.
If you're looking for something extremely colorful and in very choice condition to jazz up your collecting room wall I think that this is about the best that you will see. I assume that a political leader apparently has this made for his office decor or it is also possible that this could be a huge podium banner perhaps used at a a very large event. Either way it is an outstanding item here still in near mint condition. A great one of a kind piece here.

It does have a small tear at one edge which could be easily repaired if someone wanted to do so. There also are some very small minor age holes in the flag but nothing serious.
The original rope is still on the hoist having a loose end on one side and a loop on the other.

Written at the end of the pennant in gold and brown trim Gothic style letters is Deutscher Turnverband which basically means German gymnastics society. On the reverse white area is an interesting building which looks like some type of memorial. This is all woven with green thread on the three tiered base and gray thread at the top which depicts three overlooking closed wing eagles. This must be some type of a memorial that existed during the time and maybe still does but I do not know. Written on the reverse of the flag in blue thread is Egerland-Johnmal / Turngau. Assumedly this is the name of the town where the event was held. If you're looking for something really sweet to add to your flag collection this item should be of interest. It is tremendous attention getter and a very rare flag in nice condition.

FLAGS #44642C Hermann Göring Personal Car Pennant as Prussian Minister of the Interior
This one-of-a-kind car pennant is an extremely rare artifact. The pennant is contained in its original leather frame with antenna rod. The frame is covered with celluloid plastic which amazingly, is still 100% intact. At the left side of the frame, the leather folds over and secures the pennant inside with three working snaps. As far as I know, the pennant has never been out of the leather covering. The pennant measures 11 inches X 6 inches. It appears to be an off-white, yellowish color cotton. The car pennant is double-sided and is embroidered with the Prussian Minister's eagle which we also know as the Feldjägerkorps Polizei eagle seen on Police Bayonets coming from this brief era in 3rd Reich history. The eagle is of black weave with open wings and looking to the viewer's right. The bird's beak and talons are yellow. The bird's eye is white, as are feather details and the mobile swastika emblazoned on his breast. The bird's talons contain two lightning bolts on the left and retain a sword in the right talon. Above the bird's head is a black ribbon which in white lettering appears the slogan, "Gott mit uns". The pennant shows a couple of minor stains, but overall, it is in fine condition.
In 1934, Göring was appointed Prussian Minister of the Interior where he consolidated Nazi power by filling the Prussian administration with Party members. At the same time he founded the political police of Prussia using mostly SA members, which became known as the Feldjägerkorps. At the same time he was responsible for the institution of the Gestapo under Himmler and Heydrich. It was also during this administration that Göring formed the first concentration camp for political prisoners..Hermann was at his prime then, having the full confidence of Hitler and used this office to go on as leader of the Luftwaffe, and in 1936, Hitler appointed him Plenipotentiary for the Implementation of the Four-Year plan, where Göring became one of the richest men in the world. Next to Hitler, Hermann was the most important man in the 3rd Reich.
A very historic pennant here and a highlight for an advanced Göring collection.

At the upper portion of the sash is a outstanding woven NSKK eagle. The eagle is all woven in gray thread having the NSKK band above. The bird's details are all highlighted with black thread including the NSKK initials the bird's head breast and wing feathering wreath and then there is an all black separate swastika inside of the wreath. Absolute highest quality beautiful work here. At the bottom of the sash is a separately applied round white field with printed swastika. The white of the field is still in new like condition with no age. At the center of the sash in two lines done in gray woven weave and outlined in black is "Der / Reichskassendermolter". This was the representative in the NSKK that seemed to hold the purse strings of the organization. He was in charge of all large purchases and also the distribution of the equipment throughout the reich. So the title is basically a finance minister. During the Third Reich time this man's name was August Köbel. Apparently Herr Köbel presented this funeral sash to an important friend or another important official upon his passing. I cannot stress how elegant this piece is and it is in absolute perfect condition throughout. A beautiful centerpiece here for an NSKK collection and a very rare funeral sash.

FLAGS #44353C American Liberated Camp Flag from SS KZ Wöbbelin Concentration Camp
This consigned flag may well be one of the most important historic items that I have handled over the years. It should be in a museum, but I am offering it to the collecting community, in the hopes that perhaps the eventual owner of the flag will donate the artifact to an appropriate institution either during his lifetime or in his will. The flag comes from the estate of a Pennsylvania Staff Sergeant from Johnstown, Pa., being a member of the United States 8th Infantry Division, 28th Infantry Regiment, 1st Battalion. The identity of the American liberator will be disclosed to the next owner of this flag.
The flag is constructed of black cotton material measuring 10 ft 6 inches by 6 feet. There are a few holes in the flag, but basically it remains very sound in its entirety. The hoist area has internal canvas strapping to support the weight of the flag, and the original steel snap clips and hardware are intact. Separately applied to the black flag are two huge white SS runes sewn to each side. There are approximately 80 inked names and addresses of American liberators from all over the United States appearing on one of the large runes. Interestingly, there are approximately three signatures from female nurses, one being from the Red Cross and also the names of one or two chaplains. There is a world of research possibilities within all of these period names and addresses. The flag is the SS Lagerfahne that flew over Wöbbelin Concentration Camp.
Wöbbelin was located outside the town of Ludwigslust near Hamburg. The camp was constructed as a sub-camp of Neuengamme and was used to house prisoners the SS evacuated from Ravensbruck and Neuengamme in April 1945 during the Russian advance. The camp housed 5000 prisoners suffering from disease and starvation. On May 2, 1945, the camp was entered by the 8th Infantry Division and the 82nd Airborne, where the conditions were found to be deplorable with at least 1000 inmates dead in the camp. The local townspeople and soldiers living in nearby Ludwigslust, claimed to know nothing of the camp nor the treatment of its inmates. The discovery was so shocking and hard to believe, that in the aftermath, a disgusted Eisenhower ordered the Ludwigslust citizenry to visit the camp to view the dead and perform the burials. There are surviving news reels and photographs of this terrible incident to be seen on documentaries from various cable history channels.
Although this flag represents an unbelievable period of sadness and atrocity, nevertheless, it is an important historical reminder of man's inhumanity during WWII, and therefore needs to be preserved. As stated above, we hope that the next owner of this serious artifact will consider a museum donation, where the flag deserves to be. It is a memorial to the many that lost their lives to the atrocities committed by a percentage of the SS, under a deranged Himmler.
FLAGS #44172C NSKK Pennant
On both sides of the pennant is a finely embroidered NSKK eagle on a white oval field. Above the bird is a ribbon that reads, "NSKK".

FLAGS #44072C Luftwaffe Flak Artillery Trumpet Banner & Drum Cover
This grouping of trumpet banner and drum cover is in a word, "fantastic". The trumpet banner measures 14 inches X 19 inches and has a red silk background. The banner is edge-trimmed with aluminum bullion 2 inch fringe, which is all in excellent condition..The original tie straps are gone to time. The obverse portrays a Luftwaffe Eagle and swastika flying to the viewer's right. The eagle is completely executed in silver bullion thread, highlighted with black thread trim to simulate the bird's details. The workmanship to the bullion is exquisite and hard to keep one's eyes off. The wing spread of the eagle is about 16 inches. A tremendous portrayal here! The reverse side of the banner is equally enjoyable to the eye and further gives the details of the unit and its garrison town. In the center is the coat of arms of the town Stadt Wolfenbüttel, a small Saxon village south of Hannover and Hamburg. It consists of a blue background within a shield. In the center of the shield, there is a white horse in a jumping stance portrayed in front of a castle turret. At the top of the turret is a six-sided star. I looked up the coat of arms and it is still used today in Wolfenbüttel. There is a three-line dedication all done in silver bullion thread, "Der I./Flakregiment 7/ gewidmet von der/ Stadt Wolfenbüttel". Translated this would mean that the banner and skirt were a gift from the town of Wolfenbüttel to the I. Flak Regiment 7. Obviously the town must have thought a lot of having this unit garrisoned in their town, as of course, this brought extra money being spent, possibly rooms rented by visiting family members, etc. An important thing to a small German town.
The accompanying drum skirt is yet another work of art The skirt measures 76 inches X 19 inches wide. There are four panels of Luftwaffe gray wool being trimmed with bullion tress. In the center is a red wood wool panel. Displayed in the center of the panel is a Luftwaffe eagle with swastika with a seeming attack look on his face and beak. The eagle is composed of silver bullion thread. The workmanship is absolutely superb, being detailed in black thread to bring out the bird's highlights. Each panel comes to a tip at the bottom and is trimmed with 2 inch bullion fringe. Hanging from each panel is a large tassle device with saving brush ends - one of these tassels has gone to time.
It is difficult to truly explain the beauty of these two pieces. They represent the best craftsmanship available in Germany of the day, and even today, are truly inspiring state of the art pieces. Wonderful display items here or perfect for the advanced Luftwaffe collector.

FLAGS #43186 Large Vehicle ID Flag
This Vehicle ID Flag is constructed of red cotton and remains in perfect condition. It is quite huge for a VID, measuring 15 feet by 15! It must have been designed for a large truck or possibly a tank.
This example has six grommets instead of the normal four, presumably because it is so immense and would need to be secured at more points to keep it from flying off. The field is separate, with a printed swastika.
A great collectible here, as impressive as it is enormous!

To the left and right of the bird respectively are the initials "K" and "L", for Kreisleiter.
There is some moth damage spread on the white sections, but the brown portions, being cotton, were left undamaged by these creatures.
The pennant is mounted on a backing of black cardboard. On the reverse of the pennant is a Weimar flag in black, white and red. In the center is a printed wreath with a portrait of Hindenberg in the center. The entire grouping is contained in a plastic mounting to protect it from damage.

FLAGS #42311C Large Hitler Youth Flag

A relatively rare HJ Flag here.

This small pennant measures 12 inches long and 6 inches across the hoist. It is split equally into the German colors of red, white, and black, and has a separately stitched field and swastika on both sides.

Other than normal soiling this pennant is in nice condition and I think it is quite rare.
Excellent Plus, Plus. $395.00
FLAGS #40637C Hitler Youth Drum Cover Section
This HJ Drum Cover looks, at first glance, like a fanfare trumpet banner. it is designed differently, however, as it is made with a longer center with a point at the bottom. it is in perfect condition throughout.
It measures 23 inches but 19 inches. It seems to be identical to the drum cover example shown on pages 96 and 97 of the David Littlejohn HJ book. It is constructed from cotton with separately stitched components. It is single sided, the reverse being plain red. The edges are trimmed in two inches white fringe.
At the top are three metal rings used to attached the piece to a drum. This cover looks to to be one of two or three panels that were hung about a drum.

FLAGS #38921C Italian Opera Nazionale Balilla (ONB) Banner
This banner is most attractive and of highest quality. It measures 21 inches by 21 inches and has a two inch gold fringe at the bottom. The banner is double-sided being a thick black cotton-like fabric. The back side is blank. The front side features a bullion Youth eagle. The bullion is thick and of a high-pile nature construction; it has a very striking look. The eagle looks to the viewer's right with open wings and talons in a squatting position. The bullion has different structures and weaves giving great life and contrasts to the image portrayal. There is a red insert inside the eagle's beak. The top edge of the banner is equipped with four tie strings, all in good condition.
At the left border is the ancient fasces lictoriae symbol of the Italian National Fascist Party. This image is extremely high off the surface of the fabric, the bundled rods being of gold bullion weave and the axe in a contrasting silver. At the top are the words, in the same thick bullion, "Opera Balilla". At the bottom is the word "Ruvo". I suspect the former refers to the ONB, or Opera Nazionale Balilla, an Italian Fascist youth organization that was active between the years 1926 and 1937, after which it was assimilated by the more famous Gioventù Italiana del Littorio (GIL), the youth section of the National Fascist Party. I'm going to assume that the latter, "Ruvo", is referring to Ruvo di Puglia, a commune in the Metropolitan City of Bari in southern Italy. Presumably this was the banner of the local branch of the organization.
It is interesting to note that in the Italian language "opera" means "work", simultaneously in the sense of both labor performed and the fruits of that work. This would make sense when applied in the context of a youth organization. Balilla comes from the nickname of Giovan Battista Perasso, a young Genoese boy who (at least according to local legend) started the revolt of 1746 against the Habsburg forces that occupied the city in the War of the Austrian Succession.
I am by no means an expert on Italian pieces. I've tried to research this item to the best of my ability and I'm sure someone out there will correct me if my conclusions on this piece are off base.
This banner is in perfect condition throughout and would be a tremendous asset to set off other Italian collectibles.

A very fine, unusual variant here, perfect for a collection of NSDAP flags.

FLAGS #36225 Official Pennant of NSFK Korpsführer General Der Flieger Friedrich Cristiansen
This outstanding NSFK Pennant belonging to General Cristiansen is of all red cotton having a golden cord border. The pennant measures 15½ inches in length and is about 11½ inches in width. The pennant is red not blue because of the rank of Cristiansen. There is a canvas hoist which contains a gold colored rope having loops on each end.
The center of the flag has a beautifully woven NSFK insignia. The insignia consists of Icarus the mythological god who flew to close to the sun with wax wings. The figure is highly detailed and in each hand he is holding handles which are attached to his wings. There is a mobile swastika superimposed over his legs. Above Icarus’ head is the NSFK banner. This insignia is woven to a black background which is in turn sewn to the pennant. The pennant also has extra stitching at the fly end and is strongly stitched along the edges to hold the gold cord in place. There is a manufacturer’s label which is sewn to the hoist. This label has a logo which appears to be perhaps a dock with flags on it in the water and to the right of the logo is the firm’s name, "Max Küst". The address is listed as Berlin SW 12 / Niederwallstr. 32.".
The opposite side of this outstanding pennant has what is apparently the arms of either Cristiansen’s NSFK division or perhaps a family crest. Either way it consists of a rectangular box having black squares on one end and white squares on the other. The crest is bordered with a matching white fabric. This is an outstanding ultra rare pennant which would make a real highlight with an NSFK collection.

FLAGS #35552C Three Panel Tapestry of Swastikas from the City of Trier
This very heavy, wool tapestry measures about 5 feet by 6 1/2 feet, with a gold fringe of 4 inches on two sides. The tapestry depicts three sections of swastikas, all side by side, and over each other. Each section is about 33 inches wide. In the center section, the swastikas are a beige color, and have a background of white. On the two end sections, the swastikas are red and have white backgrounds, and are bordered from the beige swastikas in the center with colors of red and gold stripes.
The reverse of this tapestry is ink stamped "Eigentum Stadt Trier", Or "Property of the City of Trier". I imagine thatthis flag was displayed in an official's office, or perhaps on a wall of the Trier town hall. The tapestry is still in choice condition thrughout, with no flaws anywhere, and would make a great background in a collecting room. Tapestries of this nature are extremely rare, are a great investment quality addition for an advanced collection.

FLAGS #34949 Early NSDAP Decorative Table Banner
To me this piece appears to have been used for putting around a round table to decorate the furniture piece. Most likely, the party leaders would have sat at a table so decorated. This banner is about eight feet long, and about one foot wide, having a one inch gold fringe that goes along the bottom of the banner, as well as the two ending sides. The banner is all of red cotton, with a white border at the bottom, to which the gold fringe is sewn. Spaced throughout the entire length of the banner are six swastikas on round white fields, and five printed busts of Hitler appearing to be from about 1925 or 1926.
Hitler is shown as a younger man with his ridiculous comb-over hairstyle, ludicrous moustache, political shirt, cross strap, tie and party eagle with swastika. It is a great depiction here, and something not seen too often. The Hitler bust is all printed on a white background, and has a black border that runs around the oval portrait, having 51 mobile swastikas on round, white fields in the border. Since there are five of these oval Hitler busts between the round swastika fields, that is a lot of swastikas for your money here!
This is the first time I have seen a banner like this, and I feel that it is an extremely interesting artifact, and most historical. It is possible that it could also be one of a kind. A great chance here to enhance a fine, NSDAP collection.

FLAGS #28219C NSDAP Party Flag with Long Streamer
This NSDAP flag is quite unusual in that it has a very long streamer attached to the bottom end of it. The flag is 5 feet across at the hoist area and it tapers down to a point at the end and actually stretches 14’ 6" in length. There is a large double sided white field with black printed swastika. The swastika on one side of the flag is deteriorated some but the other example is still in perfect condition, so this flag can be displayed well.
The cotton red color still retains its original rich tones and there are no holes in this flag. The hoist end has a folded over and sewn area and there are also some old nail holes where possibly it was originally tacked to some kind of a wood pole.
A great flag here for the collectors of NSDAP flags, as I have never seen one like this.

FLAGS #30080 RAD Long Pennant Flag
This RAD flag has its original fine red tomato color on a cotton base. The flag measures 4 feet by 7 feet, approximately. The hoist area is of white canvas and it contains the original rope with a loop on each end.
In the center of the pennant, which is double sided, there is around field with black spade centered between two wheat sheafs positioned on a 45 degree angle. It is an effective flag and is as great looking today as it was back then.
This pennant is in perfect condition throughout and would be a great highlight for an RAD display.
