Product Description: Here is a beautiful Third Reich Tapestry in excellent condition. The tapestry is made from a woven red wool base, which is bordered with a subdued twisted tress. The red wooled base has a few areas of light staining in areas. The bottom of the tapestry is decorated with twisted subdued fringe. The fringe has a few areas where the fibers had become snagged and pulled free. The center of this Third Reich Tapestry is decorated with a separate National Eagle Emblem, which has been applied using a neatly executed zig-zag stitching method. The eagle is made from a sort of synthetic printing, similar to a paint but not quite a paint either. The eagle was constructed over a cloth lattice, similar to that seen on the backs of collar tabs, but of a finer thread, and then sewn to the red wool. The eagle has areas where the material has cracked, mostly near the places where the tapestry had been folded for periods of time. Two 1″ (2.5cm) brass rings are sewn to the corners of the tapestry to affix it to a wall or rod. This is quite an impressive Third Reich Tapestry once it has been displayed. It would make a welcome addition to any type of collection.
Historical Description: The red flag with white central disk and black swastika was introduced by Hitler in the 1920s as the flag of the National Socialist political party. In 1933, shortly after the Nazis took power, this party flag was recognized alongside the black-white-red Imperial tricolor as one of Germany’s national flags. In 1935, the use of the tricolor flag was discontinued, and between September 1935 and May 8, 1945, the Nazi party flag was the sole national flag of Germany. From its creation in the 1920s through the end of the war, this swastika flag was made and used in endless variations, from the massive banners hung at Party Day rallies to small pennants, bunting flags, and hand-held paper flags distributed along parade routes. These flags, banners and pennants flew from ships, were hung from official and private buildings, and were displayed outside business and private homes. At the end of WWII, the Allied military governments abolished the use of all Nazi symbols, including the national flag. Most Third Reich era German national flags were simply destroyed.
