Product Description: The NSDAP Flag was the national flag of Germany from 1935-1945. This is a textbookl, original example, in a desirable size. It measures 75 x 100 centimeters (30″ x 39″), making this very displayable. It’s double sided. The body of the flag is made of a tightly woven red fabric that is very typical on flags from this era. Each side has a machine applied white disc with a large black printed swastika. The hoist end of this flag is reinforced with a rope that once had two loops at the corners. These loops are now broken, possibly when it was torn down and taken as a souvenir by an Allied serviceman. The flag is obviously used but the red color remains bols. There is some minor soiling, as well as typical age toning to the white roundels. On one side, the roundel has become somewhat fragile and there is a loss to part of the swastika where the fabric has deteriorated from age. This NSDAP Flag remains a very solid and visibly striking example of this desirable and classic wartime souvenir.
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.
