This pole cover is a most unusual item the first of its type I have seen. It measures square 9 and three quarters by 9 and three quarters and is double sided.

Three sides are sewn closed with an opening on one end. Assumedly the opening end went over some type of pole arrangement. It is possible that this cover was used to identify certain group areas or something of that nature to do with the NSDAP.

The cover has separately sewn lined white fields on each side each with a swastika that appears to be part of the sewing of the field. The piece is extremely well made and is a very interesting artifact that may be one of a kind.

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.

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.

This Hitler Youth Flag shows evidence of period use, having a little bit of minor fading throughout the red and white sections. There are a couple of tears on the end areas of the flag, easily attributable to rough handling at the end of the war.

The flag measures 12 feet by 4 feet; it is quite impressive looking! Both sides have an attached field with a printed swastika.

A relatively rare HJ Flag here.

FLAGS #38921C Italian Opera Nazionale Balilla (ONB) Banner

This banner is most attractive and of highest quality. It measures 21 inches by 21 inches and has a two inch gold fringe at the bottom. The banner is double-sided being a thick black cotton-like fabric. The back side is blank. The front side features a bullion Youth eagle. The bullion is thick and of a high-pile nature construction; it has a very striking look. The eagle looks to the viewer's right with open wings and talons in a squatting position. The bullion has different structures and weaves giving great life and contrasts to the image portrayal. There is a red insert inside the eagle's beak. The top edge of the banner is equipped with four tie strings, all in good condition.

At the left border is the ancient fasces lictoriae symbol of the Italian National Fascist Party. This image is extremely high off the surface of the fabric, the bundled rods being of gold bullion weave and the axe in a contrasting silver. At the top are the words, in the same thick bullion, "Opera Balilla". At the bottom is the word "Ruvo". I suspect the former refers to the ONB, or Opera Nazionale Balilla, an Italian Fascist youth organization that was active between the years 1926 and 1937, after which it was assimilated by the more famous Giovent√π 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 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 #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 15¬Ω inches in length and is about 11¬Ω 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 #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.
