Product Description: This is an attractive example of a small NSDAP flag. These small size German national flags are popular because they are very displayable and make great accent pieces to add visual appeal to collection displays. This one is very nice. It measures about 9.5 by 12.5 inches, with stitched edges. This small NSDAP flag is double sided, with a simple, unhemmed, printed swastika roundel machine stitched to each size. The overall condition is excellent, with some minor age toning and soling. There is a small, one inch long tear in the upper corner, but no holes or major issues. The black of the swastika exhibits some slight fading, probably from handling and time. The red of the flag body remains very vibrant. This small NSDAP flag has an overall great look and a unique character, and is a desirable, one-look original example.
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.
