FLAGS #45350C Adolf Hitler 50x50cm Führer Standarte

This is the smallest size Standarte made and as such, is quite rare.

The Standarte is in very fine condition with all of its original bright colors. There are two extremely minor age holes, and a small period repair on the reverse upper swastika. The cloth colors remain brilliant and is in extremely great shape for a standarte this old. The Führer Standartes were flown whenever Hitler was present at an outside event.

The Standarte measures 20 inches by 20 inches. It is surrounded by a black border with white and black lines. Inside, in opposite corners, is a square-shaped red field which has two printed gold color Wehrmacht-style, half-open wing eagles clutching swastikas. On the other two corners are depicted an open-wing gold Political eagle clutching a wreath with swastika. In the center. In the center on a white background field is a wreath of gold overlapping oak leaves. Within the wreath is a black, white-lined immobile swastika.

There is a white canvass hoist which retains the original rope, having loops at both ends. The hoist is ink-stamped, "Stand d Führers" The printing on the hoist of the size is vague and can not be read. On the opposite side of the hoist is a maker's cloth label, "Würtemmbergische / Catunmanfactur / Heidenheim a. Brz".

An extremely fine original example.

FLAGS #45178C SS Funeral Sash from Flanders

The Flanders Legion was a military formation that was recruited among Dutch speaking volunteers from German occupied Belgium notably from Flanders. This unit was involved with the siege of Leningrad the battle of Tannenberg Line and Operation Solstice.

This funeral banner is of all black stain having a fine grain pattern running through the cloth. The banner is about 32 inches long and 7 inches wide. At the bottom it has gold fringe which measures two inch.

The obverse of the banner at the lower part has white printing in five lines being "Der / Fhrer des SS / Abschnitts / Flandern" and below this is a set of black SS runes on a round white field with double black lines.

On the reverse of the sash on the same spot where the SS runes would be is a mobile swastika which appears to be backward. The sash itself is in very good condition throughout and is the first of its type I have seen. This sash would make a terrific display with other SS memorabilia.

FLAGS #45138C Small NSDAP Pennant

This small pennant measures 10 inches in length and is 7 inch wide at the end area. It has a small tunnel hoist where most probably there was a little staff that went through it in order to fly the pennant. It looks to me like one of the types that we would see one of the citizens with during a parade.

The red cotton is in fine condition and the field and swastika are double sided and are printed on to the flag. The edges are a little frayed or perhaps they were meant to have that look.

Excellent. $65.00

FLAGS #45289C Small NSDAP Hanging Banner

This double-sided cotton banner is a good display size being 28 inches X 22 inches. It retains its bold red colors.

Attached to the tunnel hoist is a period matching red hanging cord of good substance.

A very nice and slightly unusual example here.

Excellent. $250.00

FLAGS #45158C Luftwaffe Airport Headquarters Trumpet Banner

This trumpet banner is a real crowd pleaser being of yellow silk and trimmed in bullion throughout. The trumpet banner measures 19 inches by 15 inches.

It has a border running around three sides of inch and half bullion fringe and the upper edge of the banner is trimmed in silver bullion tress. The obverse of the banner is detailed with a most beautiful all bullion Luftwaffe eagle. The eagle is flying to the viewer's right and the bird is clutching a mobile swastika in his detailed talons. The workmanship throughout this woven bird is extraordinary. All of the silver bullion is highlighted with black thread to detail all of the wing feathering breast feathering eyes beak and talons. The swastika is also outlined in black thread. The bullion eagle has a wingspread of over 17 inches and is extremely impressive.

On the reverse of the banner is a the name of the airport commander from which the banner hails and it is written in a arch shaped manner across the upper portion "Fliegerhorstkommandantur". Beneath is the town where this infamous airport of located "Crailsheim".

This legend on the back is all done in bullion thread. Crailsheim is a city that is located in the Baden area of Wurttemburg. The airport was an extremely active place during the war and the town itself was the location of a massive campaign at the end of the war by the US 7th Army and the 10th Armored Division. They captured approximately 2,000 German and killed more than 1,000 others shooting down 50 German aircraft.

This banner is a great artifact which helps to commemorate this end of the war successful stand by the Americans. If you are a Luftwaffe collector or simply a intense history buff this banner should be of keen interest. It is very beautiful and represents the best of he best work in the making of these German banner and flag artifacts.

FLAGS #44938C Heim Ins Reich Pennant

This pennant is not seen too often and it has the same details as the party badge that was also issued with the same saying. I understand that this pennant applies to foreign personnel that had become party members.

Separately applied to both sides of the flag are the insignia consisting of a black bordered circle with white field and black swastika. Around the black portion of the circle is "Heim Ins Reich".

The one side is still in virgin condition and on the other side have been written all of the cities that the capturing veteran visited during the war.

The cities are all written in heavy ink in the field section on one side of the flag.

There are a couple of very minor holes here and there in the flag but they are very negligible.

A very interesting item here and as I say it is a rarely seen flag especially with the veteran's capture inked cities.

FLAGS #44642C Hermann Göring Personal Car Pennant as Prussian Minister of the Interior

This one-of-a-kind car pennant is an extremely rare artifact. The pennant is contained in its original leather frame with antenna rod. The frame is covered with celluloid plastic which amazingly, is still 100% intact. At the left side of the frame, the leather folds over and secures the pennant inside with three working snaps. As far as I know, the pennant has never been out of the leather covering. The pennant measures 11 inches X 6 inches. It appears to be an off-white, yellowish color cotton. The car pennant is double-sided and is embroidered with the Prussian Minister's eagle which we also know as the Feldjägerkorps Polizei eagle seen on Police Bayonets coming from this brief era in 3rd Reich history. The eagle is of black weave with open wings and looking to the viewer's right. The bird's beak and talons are yellow. The bird's eye is white, as are feather details and the mobile swastika emblazoned on his breast. The bird's talons contain two lightning bolts on the left and retain a sword in the right talon. Above the bird's head is a black ribbon which in white lettering appears the slogan, "Gott mit uns". The pennant shows a couple of minor stains, but overall, it is in fine condition.

In 1934, Göring was appointed Prussian Minister of the Interior where he consolidated Nazi power by filling the Prussian administration with Party members. At the same time he founded the political police of Prussia using mostly SA members, which became known as the Feldjägerkorps. At the same time he was responsible for the institution of the Gestapo under Himmler and Heydrich. It was also during this administration that Göring formed the first concentration camp for political prisoners..Hermann was at his prime then, having the full confidence of Hitler and used this office to go on as leader of the Luftwaffe, and in 1936, Hitler appointed him Plenipotentiary for the Implementation of the Four-Year plan, where Göring became one of the richest men in the world. Next to Hitler, Hermann was the most important man in the 3rd Reich.

A very historic pennant here and a highlight for an advanced Göring collection.

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

FLAGS #44353C American Liberated Camp Flag from SS KZ Wöbbelin Concentration Camp

This consigned flag may well be one of the most important historic items that I have handled over the years. It should be in a museum, but I am offering it to the collecting community, in the hopes that perhaps the eventual owner of the flag will donate the artifact to an appropriate institution either during his lifetime or in his will. The flag comes from the estate of a Pennsylvania Staff Sergeant from Johnstown, Pa., being a member of the United States 8th Infantry Division, 28th Infantry Regiment, 1st Battalion. The identity of the American liberator will be disclosed to the next owner of this flag.

The flag is constructed of black cotton material measuring 10 ft 6 inches by 6 feet. There are a few holes in the flag, but basically it remains very sound in its entirety. The hoist area has internal canvas strapping to support the weight of the flag, and the original steel snap clips and hardware are intact. Separately applied to the black flag are two huge white SS runes sewn to each side. There are approximately 80 inked names and addresses of American liberators from all over the United States appearing on one of the large runes. Interestingly, there are approximately three signatures from female nurses, one being from the Red Cross and also the names of one or two chaplains. There is a world of research possibilities within all of these period names and addresses. The flag is the SS Lagerfahne that flew over Wöbbelin Concentration Camp.

Wöbbelin was located outside the town of Ludwigslust near Hamburg. The camp was constructed as a sub-camp of Neuengamme and was used to house prisoners the SS evacuated from Ravensbruck and Neuengamme in April 1945 during the Russian advance. The camp housed 5000 prisoners suffering from disease and starvation. On May 2, 1945, the camp was entered by the 8th Infantry Division and the 82nd Airborne, where the conditions were found to be deplorable with at least 1000 inmates dead in the camp. The local townspeople and soldiers living in nearby Ludwigslust, claimed to know nothing of the camp nor the treatment of its inmates. The discovery was so shocking and hard to believe, that in the aftermath, a disgusted Eisenhower ordered the Ludwigslust citizenry to visit the camp to view the dead and perform the burials. There are surviving news reels and photographs of this terrible incident to be seen on documentaries from various cable history channels.

Although this flag represents an unbelievable period of sadness and atrocity, nevertheless, it is an important historical reminder of man's inhumanity during WWII, and therefore needs to be preserved. As stated above, we hope that the next owner of this serious artifact will consider a museum donation, where the flag deserves to be. It is a memorial to the many that lost their lives to the atrocities committed by a percentage of the SS, under a deranged Himmler.

FLAGS #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.

This label has a logo which appears to be perhaps a dock with flags on it in the water and to the right of the logo is the firm’s name, "Max Küst". The address is listed as Berlin SW 12 / Niederwallstr. 32.".

The opposite side of this outstanding pennant has what is apparently the arms of either Cristiansen’s NSFK division or perhaps a family crest. Either way it consists of a rectangular box having black squares on one end and white squares on the other. The crest is bordered with a matching white fabric. This is an outstanding ultra rare pennant which would make a real highlight with an NSFK collection.

FLAGS #35552C Three Panel Tapestry of Swastikas from the City of Trier

This very heavy, wool tapestry measures about 5 feet by 6 1/2 feet, with a gold fringe of 4 inches on two sides. The tapestry depicts three sections of swastikas, all side by side, and over each other. Each section is about 33 inches wide. In the center section, the swastikas are a beige color, and have a background of white. On the two end sections, the swastikas are red and have white backgrounds, and are bordered from the beige swastikas in the center with colors of red and gold stripes.

The reverse of this tapestry is ink stamped "Eigentum Stadt Trier", Or "Property of the City of Trier". I imagine thatthis flag was displayed in an official's office, or perhaps on a wall of the Trier town hall. The tapestry is still in choice condition thrughout, with no flaws anywhere, and would make a great background in a collecting room. Tapestries of this nature are extremely rare, are a great investment quality addition for an advanced collection.

FLAGS #34949 Early NSDAP Decorative Table Banner

To me this piece appears to have been used for putting around a round table to decorate the furniture piece. Most likely, the party leaders would have sat at a table so decorated. This banner is about eight feet long, and about one foot wide, having a one inch gold fringe that goes along the bottom of the banner, as well as the two ending sides. The banner is all of red cotton, with a white border at the bottom, to which the gold fringe is sewn. Spaced throughout the entire length of the banner are six swastikas on round white fields, and five printed busts of Hitler appearing to be from about 1925 or 1926.

Hitler is shown as a younger man with his ridiculous comb-over hairstyle, ludicrous moustache, political shirt, cross strap, tie and party eagle with swastika. It is a great depiction here, and something not seen too often. The Hitler bust is all printed on a white background, and has a black border that runs around the oval portrait, having 51 mobile swastikas on round, white fields in the border. Since there are five of these oval Hitler busts between the round swastika fields, that is a lot of swastikas for your money here!

This is the first time I have seen a banner like this, and I feel that it is an extremely interesting artifact, and most historical. It is possible that it could also be one of a kind. A great chance here to enhance a fine, NSDAP collection.

FLAGS #28219C NSDAP Party Flag with Long Streamer

This NSDAP flag is quite unusual in that it has a very long streamer attached to the bottom end of it. The flag is 5 feet across at the hoist area and it tapers down to a point at the end and actually stretches 14’ 6" in length. There is a large double sided white field with black printed swastika. The swastika on one side of the flag is deteriorated some but the other example is still in perfect condition, so this flag can be displayed well.

The cotton red color still retains its original rich tones and there are no holes in this flag. The hoist end has a folded over and sewn area and there are also some old nail holes where possibly it was originally tacked to some kind of a wood pole.

A great flag here for the collectors of NSDAP flags, as I have never seen one like this.

FLAGS #30080 RAD Long Pennant Flag

This RAD flag has its original fine red tomato color on a cotton base. The flag measures 4 feet by 7 feet, approximately. The hoist area is of white canvas and it contains the original rope with a loop on each end.

In the center of the pennant, which is double sided, there is around field with black spade centered between two wheat sheafs positioned on a 45 degree angle. It is an effective flag and is as great looking today as it was back then.

This pennant is in perfect condition throughout and would be a great highlight for an RAD display.
