Product Description: This is a nice, honest example of a very desirable type of small NSDAP flag. The overall size is 27″ x 45″; 70cm x 115cm, perfect for display. The swastika roundel is not directly in the middle, but is offset and closer to the hoist edge, which is a characteristic of the “Gösch” naval jack flags flown by ships in harbors, though it is unmarked. This small NSDAP flag is used, and shows some honest wear and age, with some very light staining and marks and worn spots here and there, but no serious damage. It’s all complete, with its original header, hoist rope, and metal keeper. It is double sided, as are all of these naval jack flags, with each swastika roundel being a separate printed disk stitched to the red fabric. The reinforcements and reinforcement stitching and the materials used throughout are all exactly what you would expect to see on an original example. A one-look real flag, in a desirable size and configuration
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.
