FLAGS #34956 NSDAP City Flag
This NSDAP City Flag is in pristine condition, with beautiful, red, cotton colors, and a separately sewn white field, with separately sewn black mobile swastika in the center. In addition, the flag has the name of the city where it was flown, written in white woven thread is the name of the city, “WECKRINGEN”. The flag is also bordered on three sides with 2 1/2” long aluminum fringe. This fringe is all there. The hoist side of the flag is equipped with seven rings. The rings are retained with a separately sewn loop. Each ring is marked on the inside, “RZM 1/83/42”. This handsome flag measures 45” x 72”, and appears to be in almost the condition the day it was taken down and liberated. A great example here to add lots of color to your collecting room.

FLAGS #34958C Large DAF Flag
This DAF Flag is an exceptional example of the type, having all bright colors, being the same as they were originally, showing little age. This DAF flag measures 10’ x 4’ approximately, and is complete with its original canvas hoist, with ropes having their loops on each end. A few extremely minor age holes, but they are not bad. There are reinforcement patches on each end of the hoist area. The DAF symbol with its gear wheel and swastika are all done in black cloth construction throughout. There is an original paper issue tag attached to the flag with the maker’s name and the city, “Otto Muller, Gotesberg”. An outstanding flag here that is rarely seen.

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 #34950C Long NSDAP Banner with Town Name
This long NSDAP Banner is of all-cotton construction, retaining its bright red colors. Other than one minor tear at the end of the flag, the rest of the fabric is perfect. The field is of separate construction, with a printed swastika. The banner measures a long thirteen feet, with a width of four feet. At one end of the banner on both sides is woven in thick yellow thread, the name of the town from whence it hails, “BRAUNRODE”, which is a small village in the area of Saxon, “Anhalt”. An outstanding example here, and if the flag were folded in half and hung from a ceiling area it would make an excellent collecting room addition.

FLAGS #34952 NSDAP Flag
This NSDAP Flag retains its original colors, and features a separately constructed field with a printed swastika present on both facings. Overall the flag remains in excellent condition, having only a couple of only minor holes near the tunnel hoist area, but otherwise being perfect. A good NSDAP flag to be had here, at a reasonable price.

FLAGS #34957C Large NSDAP Flag
This large NSDAP Flag is a very choice example of the type, and a great one to put away just to say that you own one. It still retains all of its bright colors, and has no holes anywhere. The double-sided example has a separately sewn white field with printed black swastika. It is equipped with a tunnel hoist, at one end, and measures approximately 12’ x 3’. A very fine, highly collectible example here.
Near Mint. $495.00
FLAGS #34959C Naval-proofed Kriegsflag
This Naval-proofed Kriegsflag is a good size for the collecting room, being fairly large, but not outrageous, measuring approximately five feet by ten feet, eight inches. The flag is the printed type, and double-sided. It is in choice condition throughout, with no holes. It is equipped with a canvas hoist on one side, and although the hoist has the tunnel built in, the original rope is missing. The hoist area is ink-stamped, “150 x 250 REICHSKRIEGS FL.”. Additionally, it has the inked maker name, “FAHNEN-KREISEL”. At the one end of the hoist is the inked marking of the naval eagle grasping a swastika, being positioned over the letter “M”. A very fine Naval example here, in top condition.

FLAGS #34960C Command Flag of Feldmarschall Keitel, OKW
After Hitler sacked Von Blomberg, and assumed direct command of the entire Wehrmacht himself, he established the new position of “Oberkommando der Wehrmacht" and appointed Generaloberst Wilhelm Keitel as the first head of the OKW. With this position there was also a command flag established. The flag was first introduced at Berchtesgaden on 6 August 1938. This command flag is in the shape of a swallowtail, and measures approximately 12” x 16”. It is all formed in a satin-like material, having textured lines throughout the fabric. It is a combination of colors with a black border, and an inside border of white, and the center area being red. The upper left canton has a black iron cross with white borders, and the lower left canton features a black Wehrmacht eagle, looking to the viewer’s left, clutching a mobile swastika. This eagle is outlined in white. In the center, there is a round, white field, which has border circles of black, white, and black, with a mobile black swastika on the inside, also having matching white and black borders. The colors of this swallowtail command flag are still nice and bright, and it shows little age. Apparently, the flag was taken from a staff or other mounting device, as there are signs that is was removed on the left top and lower corners. This double sided flag is extremely rare, and had been used by other heads of the OKW, as Hitler did change these leaders from time to time. An outstanding historical artifact here, in fine, collectible condition. This is a very historically interesting flag.

FLAGS #34961C Early SA Motorkorps Flag
This Command Flag was used by the SA Motorkorps who of course, were the predecessors of the NSKK. This command flag is made of canvas like material, having a black border, with an inner red section, and a white, square, center block. The command flag measures approximately 18” x 18”, and has a canvas hoist with the original rope inside. The loops, however, are broken off on both ends of the rope. In the center area, there is an early SA eagle with open wings and wreathed swastika, black-printed. Beneath the eagle is hand done black thread weaving, which gives the number and designation of the unit, “I/M 36”. I am sure that some of the SA enthusiasts out there could look up this group and find information about where the group was located, and the size of the unit. This command flag is double sided, and although it shows some age discoloration in the white areas, there are no cuts or tears, and it still remains in fine condition. A great display item here for an SA collector. A very rare command flag.
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. The Fuhrer 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! I could easily picture this banner being used at the head table, during one of the Fuhrer’s famous speeches, given throughout Munich’s beer halls. It is a shame that this banner is not equipped with a tape recorder, so that we could all hear all of the exciting events that it must have been witness to. 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 #34833 Stahlhelm Flag
This Stahlhelm Flag is an all-cotton, outside type, with a canvas hoist at the left side. The original rope is gone from the hoist, but it is not ripped or torn. This flag is an all-cotton, double sided, printed type, and it measures 40”x26”. The flag has a few very small age holes here and there, but overall, it looks great, still having its original colors. The flag depicts a white background with a circled center, having a helmet in the center, with a black round border. In the canton, there is an Iron Cross with a white border, printed over the national colors of Germany, black, white, and red. These Stahlhelm flags are extremely rare, and I believe that this is the first one that I have had to offer. It looks great on a wall, and the few minor holes do not distract from its appearance. A very rare original.
FLAGS #34481 Army Officer's Fender Staff Car Pennant with Cover
This Army Officer's Staff Car Pennant measures about 12 inches by 8½ inches. The pennant is a field green color and it has white cord that runs around the outside of it. Embroidered onto both sides of the flag is a fine open-winged army eagle clutching a swastika within an oak leaf wreath. The brocade white woven work is done quite beautifully and is enhanced with black thread. The pennant is covered by a celluloid which has some cracks and a tiny bit missing towards the end but for the most part it is still in fairly good condition. At the hoist end there is a wire mast having outlets on each end. Accompanying this fine army officer’s pennant is the original black cover consisting of a canvas material having a fold-over lid which is retained closed by two working snaps. A great looking example here.
FLAGS #34800 Deutsche Jäger Hunting Car Pennant with Staff
This Deutsche Jäger Car Pennant measures approximately 12 inches by 7 inches. It is a double-sided green cotton that features the insignia of the National Hunting Association on either side. The insignia is done in fine woven thread. It depicts a stag head with antlers having a swastika between the antlers with sunrays coming out from all sides. Around the head of the stag is a ribbon which has the initials of the organization, “D.J.”. The green pennant is attached to a white canvas hoist which in turn is still attached to the metal car staff. The staff is about 14 inches in length and is nickel-plated having the top finial in the shape of an acorn. A very nice touch here! This pennant shows some age and some minor fraying but overall it is all there and not a commonly seen item.
FLAGS #34799C National Hunting Association Car Pennant
This car pennant measures 12½ inches by 8 inches. It is of green canvas having the embroidered insignia of the National Hunting Association on both sides. This consists of a stag head having a rayed black swastika in the center. Around the deer’s head are the initials of the organization, “D.J.”. There is a rope still in the hoist area of the pennant. This pennant shows only nominal age and still retains its good vibrant original color. A nice example here and perfect to display with some hunting cutlasses.

FLAGS #34785 Hitler Youth Trumpet Banner
This double-sided trumpet banner is all made of separate construction. It features red, white and red cotton fabric with the white being in the center. The banner measures approximately 19 inches by 19 inches and has a 1½ inch white cotton fringe which runs around three sides. At the top there are three original cords meant to tie the string to a trumpet. The corner on the left end is missing. The banner of course displays a diamond shaped image in the center with a mobile swastika. This trumpet banner shows some average age but its colors are still nice and bright and there are no holes anywhere. If you could acquire a HJ trumpet this would certainly dress up the instrument. A great fairly rare fanfare banner.

FLAGS #34769 Small Naval Proofed Kriegsflagge
This small flag is extremely desirable as it is the smallest example that was produced during the Third Reich. It measures only 19 inches by 33 inches and most likely was flown from a naval launch or other motor craft associated with the Kriegsmarine. This flag still has its good bright colors being a double-sided printed type. It has lots of stitching that runs around the outside edges and there are also areas that are reinforced by being hemmed. The Kriegsflagge of course portrays the Iron Cross in the canton area and in the center there is a mobile black swastika on a white round field with black lines that go out on the four quadrants. This flag has a few very tiny age holes but they are extremely nominal. The hoist area is of canvas and it still has its original rope inside together with a loop on each end. On the left side of the obverse hoist it is naval proofed with an eagle and swastika over the letter “M”. The stamping was done a little haphazardly but nonetheless it is there and recognizable. Next to this is the type of flag and its size, “Kr.Fl. 50 x 85 cm”. On the opposite side of the hoist is the maker name and location, “Koechlin, Baumgartner u. Cie. A.G. Lörrach”. A great flag here and as mentioned above a very rarely seen size. This flag, of course, would be a great display example in even the smallest of collecting rooms. A rarely seen item here!

FLAGS #34698 NSDAP Flag with Interesting Markings
This NSDAP flag has quite a few holes in the cotton fabric but it is really an interesting flag being the style which was flown outside and having a canvas hoist. The flag measures 31 inches by 53 inches. On the canvas hoist it is marked with the metric dimensions, “80 x 135”. Also there is a maker’s label, “Chr. George / Berlin c2 / Brüderstr.2”. The flag itself is double-sided having a separately sewn white field with separately sewn black mobile swastika. The flag also has a hem around three of the edges. It is interesting that marked in the right corner of the flag in black lettering is a three line designation which definitely must have served as the purpose or the place where the flag was displayed. If this could be interpreted it may mean a lot to a future collector. It is marked, “R.M./f.V.u.P./700”. A very interesting flag here that I wish it didn’t have the holes in it but nonetheless it is what it is and it is priced accordingly.
Excellent. $195.00 (#013013)
FLAGS #34237C One Half of Adolf Hitler Funeral Sash
This Adolf Hitler Funeral Sash was apparently cut in half at the end of the war so that the two sides could be shared by two souvenir seeking veterans. The half that we have here is the portion that has the Adolf Hitler bullion standarte sewn near the end. The half that is missing would have had the special gold bullion funeral eagle and swastika. Perhaps there is someone out there with this other half and these two pieces could be finally mated together? At any rate, this funeral sash measures 40 inches by 11 inches and at the end is trimmed with gold bullion three inch fringe. The thread here is actual gold metal and it weighs quite a bit due to this. Looking at the fringe, none of the bullion appears to be missing. About one foot upward from the fringe is sewn a magnificent AH standarte.
The standarte features a border ribbon of black, white and black colors and in the center it is a red silk. On each corner there are embroidered gold bullion eagles with swastikas. Opposite each other are Wehrmacht eagles with swastikas clutched and on the other opposite corners are political eagles clutching swastikas within a wreath. The gold embroidery is just fantastic to these eagles. The eagles surround a white field which is bordered with a gold oak leaf wreath. The oak leaves themselves are also produced of embroidered bullion as are the ribbons that decorate each quadrant of the wreath. The wreath itself has a base of gold bullion. Inside of the wreath is an immobile separately applied black swastika. This swastika was trimmed with gold borders but only a few threads remain of this border trim. The silk itself is the style that has decorative subtle lines that run through the material. The original red color has faded somewhat as apparently one of the owners in the past of this sash may have had it displayed where the sunlight was reflecting on the silk thus fading the colors. It is not bad though and considering its age of about seventy years it doesn’t look bad at all.
These funeral sashes were given by Hitler to be draped over the coffin of a high political leader, Wehrmacht officer or a famous actor or talented personage. These funeral sashes are very rarely seen today. I have only had one in my experience and as I recall this example was sold at a Max auction some fifteen to twenty years ago. Although only half of the original sash remains this still is a magnificent artifact and there is always hope that the other half could be remaining in a collection somewhere perhaps still in a family. Either way it most likely will eventually surface as it is hard to imagine that anyone would throw away something decorated with this much genuine gold. A great opportunity here to own a very fine item.
FLAGS #34191C Naval Swallowtail Bunting for an Admiral
This Naval Swallowtail Bunting has the two points at the end of the flag and it is twenty inches in length. The hoist area is made of canvas, as is the whole swallowtail. There is a stiff rod sewn within the hoist area, which has metal loops on the end, and a snap clip on each end. The swallowtail is twenty inches in length and on both sides has a separately sewn Maltese cross, which is bordered in white stitching. This swallowtail shows very little usage, and is in choice condition. The admiral's swallowtail would have been flown from the mast rigging, to announce that an admiral was aboard. A very nice item here that could be displayed "admirably" with a naval collection. Bunting of this rank is very rare.

FLAGS #33841 Naval-proofed Kriegsflag
This Naval-proofed Kriegsflag is a beauty, being perfect throughout. The flag is just the right size for your collecting room measuring 39" x 66". This sized flag was ofter used on torpedo boats. The flag features a black Iron cross canton area with a mobile swastika in the center, with black lines around the circumference, which extend outward on the center of each of the quadrants. This flag's hoist area is made of canvas, and the hoist rope is sewn within, having a loop on each end. The canvas is marked "KR. FL. 100 x 170". There is also a maker name on the hoist, but it is illegible. A pristine flag here with no holes, and an absolute investment quality example.
FLAGS #33850 Veteran's Flag
This Veteran's Flag has excellent bright colors throughout. Studying the hoist area, it appears as though the flag was originally attached to a pole, and was gently removed by the liberating US veteran. There are a few very minor age holes, that are spread around this flag, but they do not detract and will not show once the flag is hung on a wall. This flag is a great size for a collecting room, measuring 48" x 48". The flag features the veteran's insignia which consisted of an Iron Cross and in the center having a white field with black mobile swastika, having dual lines running around the circumference. I know there were a lot of veteran's organizations, judging by the amount of participation we see in period photographs, but for some reason, very few of these flags ever turn up. This is a great addition for someone looking to add a nice, fairly rare example to his collection, or a good highlight of a collecting room.
FLAGS #34050 Naval-proofed Kriegsflag
This Naval-proofed Kriegsflag was most likely used on a destroyer. It measures 59" x 98". The flag, of course, is double-sided, and features the Iron Cross in the canton with a black mobile swastika in the center field, having dual black lines around the field circumference, with black lines running out to the centers of each of the quadrants. There are no holes in this flag, and it retains its fine, bright colors. The hoist area is canvas, and retains the original ropes, having a loop on each end. The canvas is marked with the poltical eagle and swastika positioned over the letter "M". It is additionally marked "150 x 250" "Reichskriegsflag". In addition, it is marked with the maker name and location "Plutzer & Brullk. g, Bielitz ols". A very fine Kriegsflag here, with reinforcement stitching throughout all of the stress areas. A fine investment quality artifact.

FLAGS #33999C POW-Made NSDAP Pennant
This NSDAP Pennant is 16" x 15". It is rather crudely made, and the consensus is that it was produced by a POW. The flag has good red colors throughout, and it is double sided. The center white field shows much age, and some discoloration, being separately sewn on both sides. In the center is a separately sewn, crudely done swastika. The swastika is sewn backwards on the reverse, as we would see them on a printed flag. There are no holes or problems with this flag, and it is an interesting item to add to a collection.
FLAGS #34001C NSDAP Flag
This NSDAP Flag is a fine example, measuring 40" x 59". The flag has a hollow tunnel hoist area. This flag is double sided with a separately sewn field with black printed swastika. The original tomato red colors are nice and bright throughout and there is little age to the white field area. The flag is marked "100 x 150". A very fine display example here.
Mint Minus. $595.00
FLAGS #34006C Naval Kriegsflag
This Naval Kriegsflag 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.
FLAGS #34000C NSDAP Flag
This NSDAP Flag is a real beauty, still having its original bright, tomato red colors and a separately sewn field with black printed swastika. The flag measures 4" x 9' 8", being double sided. The hoist end has a sewn tunnel for the insertion of a mounting pole. This is an outstanding conditioned NSDAP flag with no defects of any kind. A nice cloth item here.
FLAGS #28277C Small NSDAP Party Pennant
This pennant has good, rich, red colors to its cotton fabric. It is double-sided and has a round white field with black printed swastika. The hoist end has a white canvas sash area. This pennant is in fine condition and will display very well.
Excellent Plus. $125.00
FLAGS #28960C NSDAP Flag
This NSDAP flag is in outstanding condition throughout. It retains its choice bright colors and is made from a fine cotton fabric. The flag measures 2 foot 4 inches by 4 foot 4 inches. It is the perfect size for displaying in your hobby room. This flag is a double-sided example having a separately sewn field. The black mobile swastika in the center of both sides is the printed type. A real beauty here in perfect condition.
FLAGS #28961C NSDAP Swastika Field
This field section was cut out of a flag by a returning vet, presumably to have some sort of souvenir without the bulk of toting a large flag around. This field is approximately 18-inches in diameter and it is double sided. The field has a printed black swastika on it. There is quite a bit of age and also some burn marks on the flag but overall it is in good shape, except for a tear drop shaped hole in one leg of the swastika. If you have a flag that is missing the field or if you would like to create your own flag this would be a good portion to start out with. An interesting vet bring back.
FLAGS #29562C Hitler Youth Long Banner
This long banner measures approximately 10 foot in length and about 3 ½ feet wide. It is a single sided type as it was probably displayed from the side of a building. The colors are still pretty bright in the flag having the red and white combinations used by the Hitler Youth and then the Hitler Youth diamond with black printed swastika and white background is sewn to the center. There is a tear to the right of the Hitler Youth diamond but this could be sewn up quite easily as there is no material missing. This banner overall shows usage but it is still in nice shape and Hitler Youth flags and banners are getting difficult to come by. A good investment here.
FLAGS #29823 NSDAP Party Flag
This small Nazi Party flag is a fine example having the bright tomato red cotton background. There are no holes in this flag and it only shows minor age noticeable in the field only. The flag is double sided and has separately sewn fields. It is interesting to note that the field on one side is a black printed swastika and on the opposite side the swastika is actually a hand sewn black material. In addition to this this flag is interesting to note that the tomato red cotton background is made up of three separately sewn pieces. Obviously even the flag factories did their best to use up existing materials. In this case they had extra pieces of cotton, both white and red, and cut a black piece to make the swastika on the other side as they must have been out of printed fields A really great example here for those who appreciate this kind of stuff. 100% genuine.

FLAGS #30649C Small NSDAP Flag
This flag is very small about the size of a handkerchief measuring 9-inches by 11 ½-inches. It is a full flag though having double sides and two-piece construction. The white field is separately sewn to both sides and has a printed mobile swastika. The red flag itself is a fine cotton and it is in perfect condition. Assumedly a flag of this nature would have been waved from the fingertips or possibly it was just laid over a small table. At any rate, it is a great item for display in a collection room due to its small size.
Excellent Plus. $125.00
FLAGS #28969C Kriegsmarine Fender Pennant
This fender pennant measures approximately 13-inches by 9-inches. Unfortunately, it has been taken out of its celluloid covering so it is only the double cloth pennant that still exists. The one side is the naval dark blue color with a woven gold eagle in the center. The bird has outstretched wings, looks to the viewer’s left and clutches a wreath with mobile swastika. On the opposite side the pennant is a cream color with a black line running through the initial stages of the pennant and a yellow woven eagle which in this instance, looks to the viewer’s left, has open wings, and has a backward swastika as it is seen from the reverse. I guess this would make a good display if it could be mounted somehow on a solid background.
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.

There are no holes in the flag and it is a double-sided type being of two-piece construction with white field and printed swastika. This flag is a good size to display in a collecting room, being approximately 8’6” x 3’ dimensions. It does have a hoist area with the remains of the original rope and one clip. A good, sound example here.

FLAGS #28262C White Field and Swastika Only
This large white field was apparently cut from the flag by the returning veteran. Apparently, he figured it was easier just to carry the field home. This white field is 30 inches in diameter, having a black printed mobile swastika. The veteran neatly cut the thread that was holding the field to the flag and there are no tears or any problems with this example. It is ready to sew to another flag, or you might like to use it as a decoration for your collection just the way it is.

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.
Excellent Plus, Plus. $500.00
FLAGS #28264C NSDAP Party Banner
This Party banner shows a little bit of age in the field and also has a few holes and some age fading, but it still is basically all there. It is a double-sided banner and measures 4’3” x 9’6”. The white field is separately sewn to the flag and it has a black printed swastika. There are two tie strings at the top for securing this fine banner. The tie strings have been period sewn to the red cotton flag edge area. A good banner here for a reasonable price.
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 #33725C Small Kriegs Flag
This small Kriegs flag is a real beauty. It measures 19 inches by 33 inches. It is difficult to find Kriegs flags this small. This flag still has its original bright red colors and is printed on both sides. The canvas hoist area is complete with the original inside rope with a loop sticking out on each end. The canvas hoist is stamped, “Dt. Reichskriegsfl. 50 x 85”. There is also the ink stamping of a maker’s name but it remains illegible. This Kriegs flag is perfect except for one small pin hole near one of the fly end corners. The Kriegs flag of course depicts an Iron Cross in the canton area and in the center is a black mobile swastika with white field and black and white lines running out on each of the quadrants. An outstanding example here for display.

FLAGS #33726C Small Naval Proofed Kriegs Flag
This small Kriegs flag is a tough one to find. The measurements on this flag are only 19 inches by 33 inches. This is the size flag that would have been used on U-boats as well as E-boats. The flag has been well used during the period and does have a few tiny age holes but it is not bad. The flag has a canvas hoist area which is complete with the original rope inside and a loop hanging out on both edges. This canvas is ink marked with the naval proofing consisting of an open-winged eagle with swastika positioned over the capital letter, “M”. Next to this is inked, “Reichskriegs-Flg 0,5 x 0,85”. This double sided flag has the Iron Cross in the canton and in the center is a white field with black mobile swastika having white trim to the legs. There is a black circular border around the field with black and white lines that flow outward along the quadrants. The colors are still mostly bright on this flag. A very fine example here that absolutely saw service during the war.

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 #33727C Italian Merchant Marine Flag
This Italian Merchant flag is produced of thin cotton. It measures 36-inches by 33-inches having colors of green, red and white with a printed Italian crest in the center. There is one hole at the hoist end and a small hole at the fly end. The flag shows usage but still has pretty good colors and is double sided.
FLAGS #33730C Italian Naval Flag
This Italian Naval flag is about 50 inches by 30 inches. It is a cotton flag made in three separate segments. The segments are red, white and a yellow color which I would think should be green but perhaps it is faded. Printed in the center of the flag is the Italian crest with a crown over the top of it. The crest is a shield shape having a blue border with red inside and a white cross through the center area. The cotton flag is equipped with a canvas hoist which has a grommet in each end. Printed on the hoist area is the numbering, “2-3 x 4”. Written next to this in pen is, “2 ½ feet by 4 feet”. Also written on the hoist is, “Italy AEE”. There is also a stamped ink maker’s mark but it is illegible. A good display example here.
FLAGS #33739 NSDAP Party Flag
This NSDAP Party Flag measures approximately 9 feet by 4 ½ feet. It retains its original tomato red colors and has a separately sewn field with a printed black swastika. Other than some minor holes at the ends this flag remains in choice condition. A nice example here.

FLAGS #26241 Small NSDAP Political Banner
This small NSDAP Political Banner is of 2-piece construction, and is double sided. It is a small size, and easy to display, being only 18 inches by 20 inches. There is a separately sewn white field, with printed black mobile swastika on each side. The field does show some age darkening in the surfaces, but it is not too bad. There are a lot of tiny “pin” holes in this flag, as when I purchased it from the son of a veteran, it still had all of the medals and insignia the veteran brought home with him, pinned to it. I assume he displayed this flag with all of his medals and pins intact. A good example here, that if it were cleaned up a bit, would probably display well.
Excellent. $75.00 (#030612)
FLAGS #30694C Naval Pennant for the Destruction of a Ship
This Naval Pennant for destruction of an enemy ship is a printed double sided example and it measures approximately 21-inches by 11-inches. The pennant is a printed type and is produced of cotton with a white canvas hoist. The hoist still has the rope inside and there are two looped ends. In the center of the pennant there is a white field that depicts a gold anchor with a black Iron Cross superimposed over it. The colors are still excellent throughout this pennant and other than one “pin” hole the pennant is in perfect condition. This is a rarely seen flag here.
Excellent Plus. $1295.00
FLAGS #33561 Naval Proofed Reich State Flag
This Reich State Flag is most unusual in that it has a naval proofing along with the normal type stamping. The flag measures 59 inches by 98 inches. It still has good bright colors but definitely was flown during the period. There are some age minor holes in the flag, but nothing serious. The flag has the reinforcement patches in the corner and has the white canvas hoist. The original rope with loop is still intact in the hoist. The Reich state flag features an open winged eagle with swastika in the canton area and then in the center there is a white field with black swastika trimmed in black. The hoist area is stamped with the eagle and swastika over “M”. Next to this is the type of flag “Reichs Flg.”. After this is the metric size of the flag “1,5 X 2,5”. This is a very rarely seen flag and it has a real sense of the period as it was definitely flown. A great item here if you are collecting flag types.
Excellent Plus. $895.00
FLAGS #33518C Small NSDAP Flag
This flag is double sided having double sewn cotton fabric on each side. It still retains its bright tomato red colors having a sewn field with printed swastika. One side of the flag has a number of insect holes in it, but since the fabric is doubled it doesn’t really affect the other side which only has a couple of minor tracks and not really any holes. This flag must have been used for outside as it has a white canvas hoist area with a small rope within having a loop on each end. This flag measures 8 inches by 13 inches. You can’t ask for a better size to display in your collecting room. A most unusual flag and the first of its type that I remember carrying. A good opportunity to the collector of flag types or someone wanting to add some color to his display.
FLAGS #33435 NSDAP Podium Banner
This NSDAP Podium Banner measures 30 inches by 38 inches. It retains its bright tomato red colors and is one sided.

This DDAC Auto Club Pennant measures about 14-1/2 inches by 8 inches. It is extremely nicely made being of a white canvas material having a black, white and red cross which runs the length and the diameter of the pennant. This stripping has been done with woven thread. In the center of the cross is the auto club insignia consisting of an oval, having a black border with white and black strips inside the border and a black eagle looking to the viewer’s right with an eagle with half-opened wings. The eagle clutches a woven mobile swastika which is within a white field with red border. The initials of the auto club are in white woven thread across the breast of the eagle “D.D.A.C.” The hoist area of the pennant is made of white leather and the original metal rod is still inside with eyelets on each end. There is also the original snap clip on the top eyelet. This double sided pennant shows a little bit of soiling but is still in very nice condition. A great item to display.

FLAGS #32827 RAD Standarte
This RAD Standarte is of highest quality and is a very beautifully made item. It is perfect for someone collecting RAD memorabilia to highlight the assemblage. The standarte measures approximately 53” x 44”. It is all made with separately sewn pieces and has a beautiful 2” aluminum bullion fringe that runs around the three borders. There is a huge black swastika in the center which is bordered with aluminum tress. Superimposed and woven over the center area of the swastika is a round wreath with black background and having silvered woven high pile trim which makes up a field of wheat shafts bordering the inside white field. The center of the field has a woven black colored area completely made of separate pieces which depict a spade with wheat shafts on either side on a 45° angle. This spade and wheat shaft designs are all produced of multi-sections of black cloth all separately sewn. Lots of outstanding work here. In the fly upper area of the standarte is an honorary name “Maximilian Schmidt”. The honorary name is done in woven silver thread. Maximilian Schmidt was apparently a famous artist from the Bavarian area. There are a few extremely minor age holes in the surfaces of the red cotton but they are only the size of a grain of salt. The rest of the standarte still remains in a near mint state. This standarte is quite heavy and it also has bolster material between the two sides to give it substance. A remarkable, hand-done standarte here that will highlight an RAD collection. A similar example of an RAD standarte using an honorary name can be seen on page 35 of the Flags and Banners book by A.S. Walker.

FLAGS #32734 NSDAP Flag With Printed Gau Designation
This NSDAP Flag is the first type that I have seen with this format. The flag measures approximately 21” x 19” with a hollow tunnel on the hoist side. The cotton retains its bright red color throughout and has a separately sewn field with a separately sewn swastika on both sides. Printed at the top of the flag is the designation “11/17 NSDAP Sachen/Gal”. At the bottom of the flag are the words “Hai! Russe”. This literally translates as a forewarning to the Russians. The banner comes from the Gau of Saxony, which is located in Eastern Germany; hence the proclamation to their reigionally close counterpart. It is interesting that although the flag is double-sided, only the printing is on the obverse side. This flag has no holes and is still in choice condition throughout.
Near Mint. $695.00
FLAGS #32823 NSDAP Party Flag
This Party flag shows some age and slight fading to the red cotton background. It is a double-sided example having a separately sewn field with printed swastika. The white field shows some age toning and there are a few minor age holes in the flag as well as a little fraying to the edge in one area. The flag does have a tunneled area which still has the original hoist rope as well as a nickel snap clip. This flag measures 7½’ x 2½’ and is small enough to display well in a collection room.
FLAGS #32824 Hitler Youth Pennant
This HJ Pennant measures approximately 38” x 22”. It does show some minor soiling and rust stains on both sides but they are not bad. There is one small hole on one side but the other side is still in perfect condition. The remnants of the original RZM tag are still clinging to this pennant. The tag is an off-white with red printing having the RZM circle and the Hitler Youth diamond with swastika. The rubber stamping #344 appears in the center area but the run number is mostly obliterated. This double-sided pennant has separate construction to the center diamond shaped field as well as the black mobile swastika. The pennant has a center white line with red upper and lower. The pennant is embroidered with the unit number. The white embroidery on both sides is “41/108”. The hoist end still has a clip attached with thread at the center area. The other two clips are gone to time. This HJ Wimpel is all there and is an excellent collectible.
FLAGS #32495C Unfinished NSDAP Party Flag
This Party Flag still retains its rich tomato red colors and has an excellent separately sewn field and black swastika on one side. On the other side, there is a separately sewn white field but the swastika was never sewn onto it. Additionally, the ends of the flag on both sides were never hemmed. This appears to be a flag that possibly was unfinished and was liberated from a factory. It is also interesting to note that the swastika and field is offset well from the center to the left end. I understand that some NSDAP flags that were to be used for national purposes had offset field and swastika in their design. I assume that is the purpose of this particular example. The flag is in fine condition, being a good size at 4’6” x 7’. If you just want to have a flag to display in your collecting room, it would be easy to tuck under the ends of the flag where it is not hemmed and show only the side that has the separately sewn swastika. An interesting example here, being in first rate condition.
FLAGS #32486C American 50 Star Flag
This Old Glory is a beauty, looking to have not ever been flown. It is all of separate construction throughout to include all 50 stars. The hoist area is of canvas and it is fitted with brass grommets. The name of the original owner is marked on the hoist “Return Ted Gaebe”. There is also a spot on the opposite hoist where Mr. Gaebe also wrote his name. The manufacturer’s tag is still on the hoist area “watts mfg. corp/compton/calif.” If you are looking for a pristine 50-star flag, this one is in top condition. It smells a little of moth balls and that may account for some of its great condition. This flag measures 4’ x 8’9”.
FLAGS #32488C NSDAP Flag
This NSDAP Flag is in very fine condition. It is double-sided, still retaining its bright tomato red colors. It looks as though it may have been flown only a couple of times. There are no holes or any damage on this flag. The white field still retains most of its original brightness, having black printed swastikas. The hoist area is the tunneled variety. This flag measures 5’ x 9’. A very collectible flag in fine condition.
Near Mint. $595.00
FLAGS #32491C NSDAP Flag
This Party Flag is in great condition, looking to have been flown only once or twice. There are no holes, and the flag overall shows little age. The white fields still have fairly bright white tone to them with little aging. Both fields have black printed swastikas and the flag is double-sided. This flag measures approximately 51” x 54”. Just the right size to hang up in your collecting room! The hoist area is the tunneled type.
Mint Minus. $550.00(#052212)
FLAGS #32496C Round Printed Flag Field and Luftwaffe Sport Shirt Insignia
This grouping of two items are both in mint, pristine, unissued condition. The round field has the black printed swastika and measures approximately 18” in diameter. This field would have been installed on red NSDAP flag. Apparently, it was taken out of a supply house as there is no sign that it was ever on a flag. The field also comes with an unissued Luftwaffe Sport Shirt insignia. This insignia has a white background with a black Luftwaffe eagle clutching a swastika. Both items are great display pieces in top condition.
FLAGS #32501C Car Fender Pennant for SA
This SA Car Pennant shows a little bit of usage and slight fraying to just the pennant end. The pennant is made of canvas with good bright red color. The edges are all double-stitched and the hoist end is fitted with black leather covering. There are grommets on each of the ends for installation onto a staff. The flag is double-sided and has a separately applied white field with a Bevo style black mobile swastika. A good display item here, measuring approximately 7” x 13”.
FLAGS #32500C Small NSDAP Flag
This Party Flag is a very small size, just perfect to dress up a small spot on your collecting room. This flag only measures 14” x 17”. It is in choice, bright condition, having tomato red background with separately applied white field with black printed swastika. This little flag is also double-sided. There are no holes, stains or any problems with this flag.
FLAGS #32487C Small Krieg’s Flag
This small Kriegs Flag is double-sided and is the printed type, having a fine canvas style hoist. The flag is a small example, measuring only 20” x 33.5”. The canvas hoist area is ink-stamped “Dt. Reichskriegsfl 50 x 85”. The 50 x 85 size flag is the type that was designated for U-boats. This example has no holes anywhere and is in fine condition. There is also a maker mark stamped on the hoist but the name is mostly smeared. I can see the letters “Fahnenfabrick”. Incidentally, the abbreviation “Dt.” I believe stands for the word “Dritte” which means “third”, so the flag is titled Third Reich War Flag. The original rope with eyelets on each end is still within the hoist area and this flag has the usual double patches at the hoist area with extra stitching along all of the edges as well as the fly side. A really great flag here seldom seen in this size.
Near Mint. $1,195.00
FLAGS #32478C NSDAP Flag
This Party Flag shows some mild use but the colors are still mostly bright. There are a couple of minor age signs but no holes. This flag is double-sided with a separately sewn field and black printed mobile swastika. The flag measures approximately 23” x 27”. It has tunnel style hoist areas. A good size for displaying in a collecting room.

FLAGS #32475C NSDAP Flag
This Party Flag is a very bright tomato red color. It still retains its original brightness and is an excellent size for display and hobby room, being 18” x 30”. The flag is double-sided and has a separately sewn field with black printed swastika. There are no holes in the main portion of the flag, just a couple along the edge where the flag was hung in the past. A real beauty here.
Mint Minus. $295.00
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”.
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.
FLAGS #32294 Reich State Flag
This Reich State Flag is a real beauty, being a fairly large size of approximately seven foot by thirteen foot. It retains all of its fine rich red colors and is made of fine cotton linen. This flag, of course, portrays the Reich eagle in the canton with swastika and in the center is the Kriegs style swastika, black in color with black circle around it and lines running out on all of the coordinates. The hoist area is still all there on the flag, however, the rope that must have originally fed through it was pulled out at the time the flag was liberated. Apparently, the man who liberated the flag put his name on the canvas hoist, which is, “Alfred Cote,” and then there is written, “WW#2.” A really fine flag here and it is difficult to find these state flags. We do not get them very often and we do offer a lot of flags. There are no holes in this one.

FLAGS #32191 NSDAP Small Parade Pennant
This NSDAP Parade Pennant has a sewn-over side at the larger width that would have been used to put a small staff through in order to raise the pennant. The pennant is sixteen and one-half inches long and seven and one-half inches wide at the hoist area. The original bright red colors are still all there. This pennant is double-sided, having a separately sewn white field on each side. The white field contains a black bevo woven swastika. A nice example here for display.

FLAGS #32112 Veteran’s Funeral Sash
This Veteran’s Funeral Sash is made of a silk or satin material. It is long enough that it draped over the decedent’s coffin and was used as a decorative tribute to the dead. The funeral sash still retains its bright red colors and on both ends, there is a silver bullion fringe, measuring over two inches. On one end of the funeral sash is a separately applied satin white field with black printed swastika. I see that there is an extra set of stitch holes on the sash, which probably was put by the manufacturer to guide the person sewing on the insignia. Above the swastika, in silver applied print, is “Ns./Reichskriegerbund/Kreis/kriegerberband/Havfurt.” This would mean, “from the National Socialists Veteran’s Group” from the area of “Havfurt.” On the opposite side, applied in silver is “Unserem lieben/Kameraden/als letzten/Gruss.” This means, “As a final salute to our beloved comrade.” Below this is the round field containing the black, white and red veteran’s insignia, being an iron cross with mobile swastika in the center. Like the swastika on the other end, there are also two sets of holes here; one that was factory-done and the other that was actually sewn. This is a fine funeral sash, being quite colorful and rather touching. I don’t know where you would display something like this in your collection as I guess it is a little bit gruesome, but nevertheless, these are things that were used often in the 1930s and 1940s for burials of veteran’s and well known people.

The other three sides are decorated with two-inch white cotton fringe. The banner measure nineteen inches by nineteen inches. It is separate construction throughout, being red on both ends with a white center solid stripe separately sewn. Separately sewn to the middle of the banner is a white diamond field with a black printed swastika. The same motif is on the opposite side of the banner. This is an outstanding item to decorate your Hitler Youth display. It shows only nominal age yellowing to the white with a couple of very minor stains.

There is a sewn over tunnel style hoist on one side. An extremely fine example here with no holes anywhere.

FLAGS #32179 Large NSDAP Pennant
This NSDAP Pennant is an interesting looking item. It shows usage and the slightest fading of the red colors, but is a pennant that is not seen often. This pennant measures approximately five feet in length by two feet wide. It has a sewn over tunnel hoist area. The pennant is double sided and is all separate piece construction. There is a very large field sewn at the beginning of the pennant rather than the middle. The field almost encompasses the whole width, it is so large. This white field also has a separately sewn swastika on both sides. There is some age yellowing to the white field, but it is not bad. There are a couple of tiny holes near the hoist area, which probably come from a mounting situation. A great looking pennant and a good display item. There is also a weight sewn at the tip to keep the end of the pennant from swinging around. This would indicate that the pennant was to be displayed with the tip pointed downward.
Excellent Plus. $295.00
FLAGS #32190 Small NSDAP Flag
This flag is very small and is nearly square, measuring approximately thirteen inches by eleven inches. It has a folded over tunnel style hoist area at the left. The original blood red colors are still nice and bright throughout the cotton. Sewn to the center area, is a white field on both sides. This white field has a printed black swastika. There is just the slightest of age yellowing to the field. There are no holes to this small flag and it would be a great display item if you have a small room to house your collection.

Pair of illlumination flare parachutes. They is a red and one is white. Actually, there are three of these parachutes. They have pull strings fitted to the edges with a weight at the bottom. Nice oddity piece for your collection.
FLAGS #32396 Flag Field Roundel with Swastika
This flag field roundel was apparently cut from an original flag by the returning veteran. It is still in choice condition throughout, still having a fairly good bright white surface with large black printed swastika. This roundel is fairly large, measuring forty-seven inches in diameter. A good display item or you could make up your own flag with it.
Near Mint. $75.00(#103111)
FLAGS #32398 NSDAP Flag Field Roundel with Swastika
This flag roundel measures twenty-seven inches in diameter. The white field section has some staining and shows some yellowing from age. It has a large black swastika printed on the surfaces. This roundel was probably cut off another flag by the returning veteran.
FLAGS #32404 NSDAP Triangular Pennant
This Pennant is ten inches by twenty-four inches long. It retains its good bright red colors on a cotton background. It is single-sided with a separately sewn white field. The white has yellowed with age and has a little bit of staining, but still looks good. Separately sewn to the field is a black swastika. The swastika looks hand done. There is a hoist at the left end, being a sewn over tunnel type. A very good display pennant.
FLAGS #32411 String of Ten Triangular Pennants
This string of pennants was the kind of thing that the NSDAP would put up along a parade route to add lots of color to the procession. Each of these small pennants measures six by eight inches and the string of pennants is approximately eight feet long. These pennants are all the printed type and are all double sided. The colors are starting to fade a little on the pennants, but nevertheless, they are what they are. This set of pennants comes complete with the original tie strings. This is a rarely seen item. This set of stringed pennants would really look great hanging from the ceiling over your display room.

FLAGS #32413C Bishop’s Funeral Sash
This funeral sash is done in a red satin and it has a black fringe on the bottom for mourning. There is a printed white field with black mobile swastika near the right tip of the sash. Printed near the center in gold is the word, “Bischofshoven.” I am not sure what this means, but I believe it is a funeral sash given by a local Bishop who apparently knew the decedent. It is also possible that the funeral sash was used for a Bishop that passed away. Either way, an interesting, colorful, memorial item.
FLAGS #32030C Hitler Youth Car Pennant
This quality pennant measures about 9-inches long by about 7 inches wide. It still has the two brass clips on each end with a key ring style device. The car pennant is double sided and is apparently lined with something to give it substance. The pennant is printed having a red field with white line through the center and a white diamond field with black printed swastika. The pennant is still relatively clean and there are no flaws anywhere. There is a hoist area made of canvas and ink stamped on one side of it is “RZM B. 19,118”. This is a great looking quality pennant and would really look well with a display.

FLAGS #32029C Small NSDAP Flag
This is a very small flag that was probably used on motor boats. It only measures 19 inches by 33 inches. It is the typical printed double-sided type and has a canvas hoist. On the canvas hoist it is marked in black ink “Goesch Gr. 3”. The flag also has reinforcement patches on the edges where it ties into the hoist area. The original rope is still intact in the hollow area having one end with a loop and the other end just plain. There are a few very small age holes in the flag but they would not stop it from really looking good displayed on a wall. A rarely seen flag and very desirable.
FLAGS #31998 Kriegsflag
This Kriegsflag is a very fine example with no holes and only a couple of modest stains. The flag measures approximately 39 inches by 66 inches. It is perfect for hanging up in your collecting room. The flag of course is double-sided and has the reinforced stitching throughout with the patches near the hoist area. The flag of course has the Iron Cross in the canton area and in the center there is a mobile black swastika with black lines that run out on all the quadrants trimmed with white. The hoist area is canvas and retains its original rope within the hollowed area and has a loop on each end. Ink printed on the hoist is, “LOH. R-FL”, “100x170”. This size was used on torpedo boats. A very fine Kriegsflag here.

A great example for your collecting room.

FLAGS #28192C Large NSDAP Flag
This large Party flag is a real beauty. It still retains its original tomato red colors which are brilliant throughout. There are no holes in this flag. It is a double-sided example having a separately sewn large round white field with black swastika in the center. The swastika is the printed type. The hoist end of this flag is also produced of the red cotton material, being reinforced throughout and having a hoist rope sewn into the hollow area. The rope has loops on both ends and the original snap hardware is still retained on these loops. This large flag measures approximately 5’ x 8’. It still could be displayed nicely on a good sized collecting room wall. A real beauty here.
FLAGS #31229 NSDAP Flag with Toured Countries in White Field
This NSDAP flag is a beauty, still retaining its original tomato red bright colors. It is in perfect condition with no holes or problems. The flag measures approximately 6’ x 4’. It has a hoist end which would have been tunneled to retain a staff. The white round field is separately sewn to the flag and it has a black printed swastika. This appears on both sides. This flag has been “done up” with the countries that the 5th Division had fought in during their European tour. The white areas between the swastika legs have been black-inked with the name of the Division “5th Division” and the countries visited “England, Germany, Ireland, France, Luxenburg, Czechoslovakia and Austria. This is a neat historic record of this Division. If you are interested in the United States Army aspect of this, you can display the flag with the countries outward. If you just want a beautiful NSDAP flag, you can display it with the reverse side outward, which is perfect and does not have the countries stamped in the center. A great flag here.

FLAGS #31178 DJ Trumpet Banner
This DJ trumpet banner is two-sided and it is trimmed with 2” cotton style white trim. The banner measures approximately 18” x 17”. It is black cotton on one side, having a separately sewn white “s” rune. This rune shows a little bit of age toning but is still in perfect condition. The other side of the banner also is black cotton and it has a shield shaped piece of gray wool with a green scalloped bottom sewn to the center area. The are fur style green trees which are positioned upward. The trunk areas of the trees are a brown color. This shield represents a city crest. I looked up this crest and was able to find that it is the crest of the city of “Thalheim.” Obviously, this would have been the city where this particular DJ group was from. The top of the trumpet banner still has the three tie strings. This is a rarely seen original and would really look great on a proper instrument. A difficult banner to find.

FLAGS #31502C NSDAP Flag with Original Tissue and Price
his Party flag is unissued and is in choice, original condition. The tomato red cotton fabric still retains its bright colors. The center field area is separately sewn to the flag and has a printed black swastika. The flag is double-sided. There are a few minute holes that are in the legs of both swastika sides. They may have been caused by an insect or just old age, but I do not believe that this flag was ever issued. The flag is approximately 42” x 28”, being the perfect size to hang up in your collecting room. On one corner of the fly side is a tag which has the stamped numbers “80/120”. I assume that these numbers are the metric size of the flag. Below this is another tag which appears to be the maker of the flag. The name is very small printed but looks to be “Indanthren”. A very fine unissued example here.
FLAGS #31499C Small Kriegs Flag 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 #31193 NSDAP Fender Pennant with Celluloid Cover
This fender pennant retains its full bright red cotton colors and is double sided. The center area has a sewn white field and a printed black swastika on both sides. The triangular-shaped
celluloid cover has turned yellow with age but is still in perfect condition. It is rare to see these covers still intact. Coming out of the top and bottom of the hoist end of the celluloid are
two eyelets, which would have gone over a fender-mounted staff. This fender pennant measures about 12 inches by 8 inches and would have gone onto the staff car of a high-ranking Nazi official.
A great display piece or perfect for someone who specializes in fender pennants.

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 #30961C BDM Pennant
This BDM Pennant is double sided and is produced of all black cotton. It has no holes in it and is affixed with separately applied insignia. This pennant measures 23 inches by 41 inches. At the top corner, next to the hoist, the number of the BDM group is embroidered in white woven stitches. It is “19” over “47”. Applied to the wider part of the pennant is a great looking Hitler Youth diamond insignia. This insignia is of all separate construction featuring the two upper and lower red panels and the two white panels, one on each side. In the center is sewn a separate white square field containing a separately sewn black swastika. There is a lot of work that goes into making one of these wimples. The white portions of the HJ diamond have a little soiling, but this is to be expected after some 70 years of being around. Overall, though, a very nice example here with no holes or no problems.

On the opposite side of the hoist is the ink stamped name of the producer and their location, “Curt Bräutigam / Plauen, Vogtland”. The canvas hoist area is in excellent condition and it is complete with the original rope which contains a loop at one end and a length of rope being about 3 feet long on the other end. A very choice original flag here projecting the canton area of a black Iron Cross and in the center it has the round white field with black swastika and black lines running out to all quadrants. This is a printed flag and is double sided. A great opportunity here to acquire a fantastic original example still retaining its original bright colors.

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 #29990C NSDAP Flag with Wooden Shaft

The field is separately sewn to the flag. This flag retains its original tomato red color and at the fly end it is hemmed. There is a wooden staff connected to the flag which appears original. Normally we do not see these wooden pieces attached as most returning GIs did not have the room to accommodate a piece of wood this long. The flag is sewn around the staff. There is a little bit of staining on one field side and there is also a couple of black spots here and there on the flag, but overall it is in pretty nice condition and a great display piece.
