Product Description: This is a really neat example of the classic NSDAP pennant. It is complete and undamaged, but shows some age, with soiling throughout that appears to be from actual use. This is one of those pieces that looks like it has a story to tell. It’s a textbook original, double sided, made of two large pieces sewn together, each printed with a white and black swastika roundel. This NSDAP pennant is a perfect display size, measuring 7.5 inches wide on the hoist end, and 13 inches long. The hoist is reinforced and absolutely complete with its original rope and nickel plated metal hanger clip. It’s possible this pennant was used on a vehicle. This NSDAP pennant has great character and a unique look.
Historical Description: During the Third Reich and WWII, a wide variety of flags and pennants were used on German cars and vehicles. In the military, vehicle flags and pennants were used to indicate branch or rank, or specific command roles. The various civilian organizations also had vehicle flags and pennants for members of their organization or to denote the vehicles of officers, leaders or people in specific roles. Even political leaders had their own flags which were often rank specific. Some of the flags, especially military ones, were simply printed, and some were machine woven or stitched, while the flags for political leaders and the highest ranking military personnel were more decorative and often elaborately hand embroidered in bullion wire. Some vehicle flags were mass produced, including simple national flag type swastika emblem pennants that could have been bought by any patriotic supporter. Others were unique. These flags were attractive souvenirs for GI troops at the end of the war, and are eagerly collected today.
