FLAGS #40782C DJ & HJ Flags with Matched Unit Numbers

This set of flags was obviously captured by the same veteran. Both of the flags have retaining straps, all of them cut so they must have been cut down quickly. Other than these cut straps both flags are in very fine condition, with no holes or flaws.

It is alleged that this type of podium banner was produced to celebrate Hitler's 50th birthday in 1939, but I have no proof of this. Judging by the elegance of the banner, however, it is certain that it only hauled out for events of the highest importance.

The piece measures 18 ½ inches long and 11 across the hoist. It is constructed of separately stitched components and is split down the center between black and red cotton. It is double sided, each with a field and swastika.

The canvas hoist retains the original looped rope.

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 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 #40595 Small Kriegsflagge with Bring-back Slip

This small Kriegsflagge is a very desirable size, being 31 inches by 53 inches. It is the second smallest type made, and obviously is the perfect size to display.

The flag itself is in very fine condition, looking to have been flown only a few times. The colors remain bright and it has all the extra strengthening stitches flag collectors like to see. The canvas hoist is marked "KR. FL. 80 X 135". On the opposite side of the hoist is the maker's mark, "N. V. P. F. v Vlissingen & Co, S Skatuenfabr. / Holland". As you can can see this flag comes from the Netherlands during the occupation. The original rope remains in the hoist.

In addition the flag comes with the original veteran bring-back slip. I purchased a two of these flags, both exactly the same, and he was kind enough to give me this document. It is dated "28 April, 1945" and lists "2 German Flags" as the war booty.

A very, very fine example here.

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.

FLAGS #39005C Small Naval Proofed Party Flag

The hoist is marked "GÖSCH 50X85 CM" on one side. The opposite side bear a Naval proof; an eagle set above the letter "M". It is also maker marked "KOECHLIN, BAUMGARTNER U. CIE. A.G. LÖRRACH".

This banner is in perfect condition with no holes. It is extremely heavy due to the amount of bullion used in the design.

A tremendous display piece here! A banner such as this would have probably been used by some sort of local potentate or Party bigwig.

FLAGS #38899C Funeral Sash of Reichsleiter Philip Bouhler

This Funeral Sash looks as though one end of it was removed, but the main feature (the name of the giver) is still in bold silver lettering.

The sash is constructed of very fine silk. It measures about 48 inches long and 8 ½ inches wide. At one end is a 2 ½ border of heavy silver bullion fringe.

Printed on to the silk is "Reichsleiter Bouhler". This printing shows some minor aging to the letters.

As we know Bouhler was a SS Obergrupenführer in charge of the NSDAP end of the Reichs Chancellery. He was a key adviser to Hitler to spent most of this time trying to outfox the incredibly sleazy Bormann. Bouhler was also the instigator of the horrendous euthanasia initiative of 1938. We do not know who the deceased was in the case of this sash, but one can assume it was someone important enough for Bouhler to be personally involved.

A very rare Funeral Sash here.

FLAGS #38602C Large DJ Flag

This DJ Flag is quite rare and is a fairly good size, measuring 5 feet by 6 ½ feet. The flag is all black and is double sided.

There is a single white "S" rune on one side and a unique design on the other. This design features a gray cloth stahlhelm superimposed over a horizontal white bar, with a white cross rising from the bar at either end. Behind these images is the top third of a mobile swastika in red cloth, which looks as if it is rising from the background. All of these design elements are separate pieces individually applied.

The white cloth shows some minor stains and age discoloration, but the helmet and swastika are fine. On the other side the "S" rune also has some age darkening and soiling. The flag overall has some slight soiling and four very minor holes; two at the bottom end and two in the top half. There is also a small damage area towards the free end that has a period repair.

The reinforced hoist has a loop at the top and bottom and a clip to attach the flag. Along the hoist edge there are two more loops which probably held clips at one time.

A very scare DJ Flag here, especially with the intriguing design on the reverse that could conceivably be researched.

Excellent. $995.00

It is double sided with a Political patch on both cantons; a round piece of material with blue cord indicating that it is for an Ortsgrüppen. The unit number, "3-255" is woven in white thread.

It is rare to see a Political Leader Pennant. I think this is the first example I've ever handled.

FLAGS #38510 Political Trumpet Banner

The obverse of the banner has an NSDAP flag with a very large diameter field, about 15 inches across. Given that the banner is only 20 inches across this is quite large. The field and swastika are both separately applied. There is a little bit of age toning to the white areas but other than this everything is in fine condition with no holes.

The reverse of the banner is split in half with two color' blue at the top and white at the bottom. These colored field are separate pieces of cotton. There are two tiny holes in the center of the blue field, but it is otherwise perfect.

This is an outstanding Trumpet Banner that would really add to any display. These banners are quite rare; this is only the second time I have offered one. A great item here!

Excellent Plus. $995.00(#082316)

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 #36138 DJ Standarte

This DJ Standarte is is very rare artifact, being the first one I have handled. The Standarte is approximately 5 feet X 4 feet and is produced of black cotton. The Standarte is double sided, being two flags sewn together. It is in good overall condition except for one of the lower corner areas where there is some shredding apparently caused by an insect. It really does not take away from the artifact, though, as this piece really has a lot going for it. At the top right corner (on both sides) there is a separate white patch measuring about 8" by 5", and having a black border. The patch has the embroidered group of this DJ Bann, "13/257". Below is another patch, being 7 1/2" X 4 1/2", having the Teutonic-inspired name of the group, "Wotan", the Germanic deity.

In addition, there are original insignia, most likely owned by the flag bearer and probably put on to the Standard by himself. They are an original black DJ shoulder board having the white embroidered matching insignia, "257". Below this, is sewn a red DJ Oberbann sleeve patch with white rune. To the right of this patch is the cloth version insignia of the DJ Leistungsabzeichen, known as the "iron" version, being a sports award.

Above this can be seen a DJ lanyard, being composed of green and white woven cord. This lanyard indicates a rank of "Fahnleinführer", or Squad Leader. Below the lanyard is an RZM-marked Hitler Youth insignia with perfect enamel. This is the type that was used with the HJ knife (not the pin), as it has two long prongs on the reverse that are pushed through the cotton cloth. At the left edge border are five aluminum flag pole rings - one has gone to time, but the cloth retainer sleeve is still there. The rings are all marked inside, "RZM M3/27/37". There also appears to be a small naked field where a party eagle was once apparently attached.

A very desirable original Standard that would make a great addition to a Hitler Youth/DJ 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 #35297 Naval Proofed Reich State Flag

This Naval Proofed Reich State Flag is a hard example to find. It shows a little minor usage, and there are a few holes near and in the field, but otherwise it is in excellent condition with good bright colors. The flag is marked on the white canvas hoist with the open-winged eagle and swastika over the letter "M". The type of flag is further ink stamped, "Reich d Flg 2 x 3.35".

This Reich State flag is fairly large, being 78 inches by 132 inches. The rope is still within the hoist area having a loop on one end and rope that hangs down on the other. The State Flag features the open-winged eagle with swastika in the canton area and in the center, outlined in black, is a mobile swastika on a white field.

FLAGS #35318C Large Naval Proofed Kriegsflagge

This Kriegsflagge is a beauty, showing only the most mild of usage. The flag is a large one, measuring 78" x 132". It has no holes in it, and the canvas hoist is complete with the original rope, having a loop on one end and a dangling piece of rope on the other. The hoist is ink marked with the open winged eagle and swastika over the letter "M". Additionally, it is marked, "REICHSKRIEGSFLG" and "2 x 3.35".

There is lots of extra stitching on this flag, and quality all the way. It features an Iron Cross in the canton, and in the center, there is a large, black mobile swastika on a white field, with black lines extending out the quadrants.

This sized flag would have been used on a destroyer, or cruiser. A very fine example here.

FLAGS #34951C Large NSDAP Banner

This large NSDAP Banner is of heavy, cotton construction, having a separately sewn field that has a separately sewn, mobile swastika in the center. The banner has no holes, which is remarkable, considering its huge length, being approximately 15’ x 4’.

The colors are still nice and bright, and there are a few black stains here and there, but nothing severe. This flag is a double-sided example, with a tunnel style hoist.

A fine example of a long NSDAP banner.

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 unique, comb over hairstyle, 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 #34006C Naval Kriegsflagge

This Naval Kriegsflagge is a fairly large example, measuring 5' x 8'. It shows lots of usage, and really gives the viewer a sense of World War II. Where there were holes in the flag, they have all been period repaired, probably by the ship's tailor. This gives the flag an interesting look, as it really speaks of its experiences.

The flag is double sided with printed detail. It features a black Iron Cross in the canton area, with a black swastika on a white field in the center. There are dual lines which run around the circumference of the field, and the lines go outward in the center of each quadrant. The hoist area contains the original rope inside, and there is a loop on one end, and just a plain rope on the other. Printed onto the canvas hoist area is a political eagle with swastika placed over the letter "M". Also printed is "Dt. Reichskriegerst 150 x 250." There is also a factory tag which reads "Fahnenrichten Gegr 1868 Koln."

This size flag would have been used on a U-boat or a destroyer.

Excellent. $995.00

FLAGS #29003C Vehicle ID Flag

This Vehicle ID Flag still retains its bright colors and it is of 2-piece construction, having the field sewn to the bright red backing. There is a black printed mobile swastika. This is a one-sided flag, and it is fitted with a grommet in the corners of one side. On the opposite side there is a sewn fold-over for use of a staff hanging method.

This flag is in excellent condition, having no holes and only just a slight few stains in the field area, and a couple of small black marks on the red portion. But, overall, they do not detract. This flag measures approximately 4 ½ feet by 5 feet. It is the perfect size for hanging in your collecting room as a backdrop.

FLAGS #26906 Large NSDAP Vehicle ID Flag

This large NSDAP flag is the style that would have been put over a large vehicle or other device to identify it from the air. It has six grommets spaced around the flag which his a very large size being 16 foot by 5 foot.

The flag is one sided and has a field separately sewn to the bright red cotton. The black swastika is the printed type. There are four or five tiny holes under the swastika that look to may be bullet holes but they are very small.

This flag retains its original bright colors and is extremely impressive.

FLAGS #28273C Large NSDAP Party Banner

This is a very large style banner which would have hung from the side of a building. It is a one-sided type, being 5 feet wide and 16 feet in length. It still retains its brilliant tomato red colors and is in excellent condition, with no holes.

The round field is sewn to the flag and the black swastika is the printed type. There is a little bit of age in the field but other than that, the flag is in outstanding condition.

A great item here to possibly hang from a ceiling or decorate your collecting room in some other ingenious way.

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 #28210C Small Handmade NSDAP Party Flag

This Party Flag is only one side, and it has been completely hand made. It measures 9 ¾ inches by 14 ½ inches, on a red cotton background. A white round field has been hand sewn to the background, and further, a black mobile swastika has been hand sewn to the white background.

The stitching for both of these applications is revealed on the reverse. It appears that this was all hand made, either at an early time in the Period, or possibly it could be an American Bund flag. Either way it is definitely Period, and kind of interesting for those of us out there that collect these type of things.

FLAGS #32474C Captured NSDAP Flag

This NSDAP Flag has its original bright tomato red colors and it is still in choice, mint condition throughout. It is double-sided and has a fairly large field with black printed swastika sewn to each side. The field still retains its white color and the rest of the flag’s colors look like it was just made.

One side of the field has some capture information written on it. It has at the top of the field above the point of the 12:00 swastika leg "G co.3D/272D tpa.1th sqd". Beneath this, the person that put this information on the flag has put chronological numbers down the leg of the swastika and coming up at the top leg of the next arm. These numbers run 1 through 9. After the number "8", there is a name printed "Bob McNary". It is possible that McNary had intentions of getting the names of the other soldiers in his squad and just never got around to it. It seems as though he was well-intentioned here with these numbers positioned around the swastika legs.

At any rate, if you are collector not wanting this capture information, it is very simple to display the flag on the other side which is in totally pristine, perfect condition. There is no hoist area on either side of this flag as it is hemmed. The flag is the perfect size for display in a collecting room. This flag measures 32" x 24".

Mint. $425.00

FLAGS #32477C Small NSDAP Flag

This Party Flag is extremely small, being only 15" x 17". The background material appears to be a fine linen measuring 15" x 17". There are a few small holes in the linen here and there but nothing that would really show if the flag were displayed.

This flag is double-sided, having a sewn field with black printed swastika on each side. The two fields are slightly age toned. All in all, though, a very nice display flag here. It is rare to see a flag this small. Will make an excellent display item.

Excellent. $195.00

FLAGS #31499C Small Kriegsflagge from Holland

This Krieg’s flag shows some minor usage of the period but it still is in perfect condition with no tears or problems.

The flag measures approximately 31" x 53", being just the right size to hang up in your rec-room. The Krieg’s flag has the iron cross printed in the canton area and it is highlighted with white borders. In the center is a round white field with black printed swastika having black lines running outward on all four quadrants. The flag has reinforced stitching throughout and the hoist area is a white canvas. This hoist area still has the original rope sewn inside with a loop on each end. Printed on the canvas is "Kr.Fl. 80 x 135".

This size flag was frequently used on e-boats as well as u-boats. The other end of the hoist has the producer’s name and location in black ink "N.V.P.F. v V LISSINGEN & CO’S KATOENFABR./HELMOND (HOLLAND)". Obviously, this maker was a Dutch producer who was working for the Nazis under the occupation. Because of this, I believe this flag is quite interesting. A very fine Krieg’s flag here showing only minor usage but also coming from an occupied country, adding further interest.

FLAGS #30677 DAF Standarte from Braunau, Hitler's Austrian Birthplace

It is very exciting to offer this DAF standarte which comes from the small Austrian village of Braunau where Hitler was born April 20, 1889. This DAF standarte no doubt was in the headquarters of the local Party union group. The standarte has the patches in the hoist corner which are a tan felt material being bordered with a blue tress. The patches appear on both sides and they have white linen weaving with the name of the town and the group section, "Braunau 24". The flag itself is a fine red cotton and it measures 48 inches by 54 inches and there is a 2 inch fringe which goes around three sides. The fringe is an aluminum bullion and is in excellent condition throughout.

The hoist side of the flag is double folded and sewn and at one time it had a number of aluminum rings which would have been used to hold the flag onto the pole. Unfortunately these rings are gone to time as they were cut off by the United States soldiers that liberated this flag. We are lucky though as there is still one aluminum ring at the top end of the hoist just above the Braunau patch. This ring is RZM marked inside "RZM M3/27/37". The flag itself still retains its original bright colors throughout. There are a few extremely minor age holes in the flag but they are nothing and with proper preservation this flag should last for many years to come.

The odds of finding a flag from the small Austrian village of Braunau are extremely rare. I would think to the right person out there this flag could be a great asset and also something to perhaps build a Hitler grouping around. This Braunau DAF standarte was purchased by me personally directly from the son of the veteran who returned it. A guaranteed original choice artifact here. ITEM UPDATE: It has come to our attention that another town by the name of Braunau exists in Germany, so the possible Hitler related provenance may be disputed.

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.

FLAGS #28225C Long NSDAP Banner

This long banner is the type of flag that would have been hung from the side of a building. It is in beautiful, perfect condition and it is a one-sided type flag. The flag measures 3.5’ wide by 8.5’ long. It has a white field which is sewn to the flag with a printed swastika.

At the hoist end of the flag, there are two small straps which would be used to suspend the flag.

A real beauty here with no holes in it and great for display.
