The flag has a factory patch sewn in the corners where it attaches to the canvas hoist to give it strength. The hoist is of quality canvas having its original rope inside with a loop on each end.

The banner also has one original celluloid hanging ring and the other ring is replaced with a ket chain style ring which is probably also original but a period replacement.
A nice podium banner here that you will most probably not see another.
Excellent Plus. $650.00
FLAGS #45289C Small NSDAP Hanging Banner
The flag has separate sewn white fields having printed swastikas. There is a small tear in one of the swastikas, but it is minor, and if you are displaying the banner it is not going to show on the inside position on your wall.

The pennant is printed on both sides with a NSKK insignia; an NSKK eagle on a white background, with a banner above the bird which reads "NSKK". There is hole in near the bottom of the field and another near the hoist.
Not a bad piece here, perfect to display with an NSKK Dagger.

The field and swastika on this pennant are each separetly applied components, and each shows some minro period wear.
A decent little period pennant here.
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.
The flag is of red canvas being double sided. It has a white canvas hoist and the rope is still within the hoist. 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".
A nice item here if you are collecting party related things. This is the first example I can recall having to offer so I do not think these are common pennants.

FLAGS #44973C SA Motor Corps Captured Pennant
It is double sided having a bullion tress dressing that runs around the upper and lower edges. At the hoist side there are five snap clips.

The flag itself has a separately applied field on both sides which is surrounded with a black hem. The center swastika is printed onto the field.
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. They are Scotland Germany Austria Switzerland France England Belgium and Luxembourg. Obviously this veteran made quite a tour of Europe during his service time. 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.

On the opposite side of the pennant it is of all black color and has a single S rune for the DJ. The rune is all made of separate bullion sewing. Very beautiful work here. The red stitches from the other side of the HJ example run through the black of the DJ side.
There is a nip in one edge of the pennant which looks like it could be some type of a burn or possibly even a bullet as it is rounded. There are also a couple of minuscule spots in the cloth but nothing bad.
A very rare pennant here and very desirable.

FLAGS #44705 High Ranking Naval Car Pennant with Staff
There is a little fray along the edges but not too bad.
In the center area is a woven gold naval eagle. The naval eagle is done quite intricately but it appears to some age has gotten to it and there are some portions of the eagle where the thread has gone to time. The image though is still perfectly visible being an eagle looking to the viewer's left clutching a wreath with swastika.
The pennant is mounted over a wire metal base and also the staff portion at the end is still intact.

Pristine condition here.
FLAGS #44683 2nd Style Large RLB Flag
In addition it is marked with the European dimensions 150X250. There are a few small holes in the flag and also a couple in the swastika area but they are not bad. The flag is equipped with a rope hoist which still has some its original knotting in the rope.
RLB flags are rarely seen and this flag of course would make a very fine addition to an advanced RLB collection.
A rarely seen flag.
FLAGS #44642C Hermann G√∂ring 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 Feldj√§gerkorps 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, G√∂ring 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 Feldj√§gerkorps. At the same time he was responsible for the institution of the Gestapo under Himmler and Heydrich. It was also during this administration that G√∂ring 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 G√∂ring 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 G√∂ring collection.

FLAGS #44405 NSKK Funeral Sash
This NSKK funeral sash is a top notch item here of highest quality. It is made of all off red silk having a beautiful grain which runs the length of it. The sash is quite long being 12 feet and it is about 10 ¬Ω inches wide. At the bottom of the sash there is a very fine 3 ¬Ω inch bullion fringe. 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 K√∂bel. Apparently Herr K√∂bel 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 #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.

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

FLAGS #36225 Official Pennant of NSFK Korpsf√ºhrer 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‚Äô 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‚Äôs 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‚Äôs name, "Max K√ºst". 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‚Äôs 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‚Äô 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.
