Product Description: Original German, later war WWII DRL Flag Pole Top used for flags and standards of the Deutscher Reichsbund für Leibesübungen, abbreviated DRL, the German League of the Reich for Physical Exercise organization. The original plating over the brass base metal is completely intact. This DRL Flag Pole Top has a very striking design of a large swastika within an eagle, which is the emblem of the DRL. The pole top is complete and is in excellent condition overall. An impressive item and rare to find!
Historical Description: Virtually all of the myriad military, civil, political, and paramilitary uniformed organizations in existence during the Third Reich had their own flags and standards as part of their organizational regalia. The flags were carried in parades and rallies. In addition to the special flags, most organizations had special pole tops specific to that group, to further distinguish their unique standards. The pole tops often bore either National eagles, organizational emblems, or typical Third Reich patriotic motifs. The emblem would be atop a sleeve into which the flagpole (generally a wood pole with a black finish) would fit. These were designed to be visually impressive pieces of regalia and are often very eye-catching. Most Third Reich pole tops did not survive the war or its aftermath.
