Product Description: This Rare NSKK Flag Banner is an outstanding display object. It measures an impressive 120″ x 60″ and is made of printed thin wool fabric. The flag depicts the distinctive, bold-looking eagle and swastika emblem of the NSKK, on a red field. The colors on this piece are very fresh and vibrant. The back of the flag shows the emblem in reverse, as is typical for these printed flags. The hoist end has a woven white header with a black stripe. The front of the flag retains the original RZM paper tag, with a “Q” tax code. This Rare NSKK Flag Banner does show scattered moth damage and small tears throughout, but retains exceptional visual appeal. It’s unlikely that many flags of this pattern were produced, and they are extremely hard to find today. This is the first one of these we have been able to offer. The condition rates as excellent.
Historical Description: The National Socialist Motor Corps (Nationalsozialistisches Kraftfahrkorps, or NSKK) was a Nazi paramilitary organization that conducted training in the operation of motorcycles and automobiles, and also transported Nazi Party and SA personnel. It was founded in 1931, as a successor to the National Socialist Automobile Corps. The organization and ranks in the NSKK were similar to that of the SA. It focused on fitness in motoring skills, including maintenance and use of both military and civilian vehicles. NSKK members assisted with traffic direction, as well as the transportation of personnel involved with constructing the bunker system on Germany’s western frontier. Starting with the outbreak of war in 1939, the NSKK assisted the German armed forces, providing infrastructural support. As with most uniformed organizations in the Third Reich, the NSKK had a myriad of specific regalia and insignia, each with its own distinct purpose and meaning.
