FLAGS #43543 Reichsbahn Standarte From Town of Rothenburg ob der Tauber
This railway Standarte is the first of its type that I have seen and I must say it is. The Standarte measures about 58 inches X 58 inches and is in choice condition throughout. The red cotton cloth is perfect throughout having good original bright red color.
The Standarte is double-sided. Separately sewn to the center areas is a white field, also having separately sewn swastikas. At the bottom of the Standarte on both sides, is a remarkable separately woven winged railway wheel.To the left of the wheel is woven, "Reichsbahn" and to the right of the wheel is woven, "Rothenburg o. T" Three sides have a fine matching 3 inch fringe which remains in perfect condition. At the hoist side there are six nickel hanging rings, each attached with secured cloth strap - magnificent item here!
Rothenburg is a fairy tale-like medieval town in Northern Bavaria - it remains a very busy tourist attraction today because of its beauty. This Standarte was surely displayed in the Rothenburg train station back in the day. Wherever this Standarte has been all of these years it was properly preserved, as the condition throughout as well as the look of it is extraordinary.
One of the nicest Standartes we have had the pleasure to offer.
FLAGS #43539 NSDAP Flag
It is 48 inches X 38 inches. It has separate fields on each side with printed swastika.Other than two very small age holes in the swastika area, the flag is perfect.

Woven within the patches are the names of the towns, "Widen-Lobenich", and well as "2". The lettering is done in white, which really jumps off the black background.

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".

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.

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.

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.
An outstanding addition to an HJ collection here, especially if you could track down enough of them to kit out a drum.

FLAGS #40651C Hitler Youth Marine Pennant
The obverse of the pennant has the usual red and white colors, as well as a separately applied HJ diamond and swastika. it is 11 inches long and 6 inched across the hoist.
The hoist of the pennant is a woven blue thread, with two metal hanging rings. The opposite side is in white cotton with blue stripes on the edges of the top and with the blue hoist at the end.

To me this has to be a very rare pennant and it is in excellent condition.

FLAGS #40144C Podium Banner
This Podium Banner retains rich red coloring and remains in nice condition overall. It measures 30 by 38 inches, with a 2 ½ inch white fringe at the bottom. The banner is trimmed with a fine white material just inside the edges; this trim shows some wear but nothing too bad. In the center is an applied white field with a black printed swastika.

If you are looking for something to act as a backdrop to your collection, this piece would be perfect.

Looking at the hoist end of the pennant we find the original metal mounting rod is in place.
A great opportunity here to acquire a really rare fender pennant, and a key piece for any flag collection.

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.

The red canvas shows minor age and has one or two tiny holes, but is in overall good condition. It measures 17 inches by 17 inches.
FLAGS #38388 Unusual NSDAP Pennant
This NSDAP Pennant is quite unusual in that the reverse is different from the obverse. The pennant is constructed of a canvas-like material with a hoist on the left side. It measures 12 inches by 26 inches.
The red colors are still nice and bright and there is a separately applied white field (with a printed swastika) sewn to the center. This flag is in fine condition, with no holes or damage and showing little age.
The reverse is split into the colors of red and white. At the top there is an illegible name or word written in what appears to be Sütterlin script. It is embroidered in red against the white background. At the the bottom of the red field, embroidered in white, is the word "Nürnberg".
A very fine, unusual variant here, perfect for a collection of NSDAP flags.

FLAGS #38354 NSDAP Banner

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 #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 #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.
Near Mint. $500.00
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.
