Product Description: This is a great example of a high quality SA car pennant. The Sturmabteilung (SA) was the original paramilitary wing of the Nazi Party. This SA car pennant is very attractive, and is in excellent condition, showing only minor age toning. It is absolutely complete, with its original rope and textbook nickel plated metal suspension hook. The red field has typical reinforcement stitching, and no stains or damage. It’s double sided. Each side has a black-on-white SA runic emblem, in machine woven, Bevo-style construction. This logo was the organizational emblem of the SA. These emblems are zig-zag machine stitched to the pennant, in typical fashion. This SA car pennant is a one-look all-original example. It displays wonderfully and would make an impressive addition to any collection of SA or 1930s political/paramilitary regalia.
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.
