Product Description: This SA Pennant RZM Tag is an extremely attractive piece. The body of this double-sided pennant is constructed from two layers of finely woven wool fabric, that retains its original bold crimson color. Both sides feature a Bevo machine woven roundel with the runic “SA” emblem of the Sturmabteilung, on a white background. Both roundels are virtually perfect, with no notable age toning. They are neatly machine sewn to the pennant. The fly end of the pennant is reinforced with neat rows of machine stitching, and the hoist end retains all three of the original brass suspension rings, which are hand stitched in place. This pennant is complete with its original RZM tag, with an “E” tax code. The SA pennant RZM tag is printed in blue ink on white paper which has toned slightly from age, and is mostly complete, with some minor losses along the lower edge. This SA pennant measures 13″x 8″ and is extremely clean. The only evident trace of age is three small, pinhead sized moth nips on one side. The condition of this scarce and desirable pennant rates as excellent plus.
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.
