Each of the pennants are unit marked, the earlier pre 1936 black BDM Pennant is marked Jungmädelgruppe 6 of Jungmädeluntergau 713, and the later red BDM Pennant is marked Jungmädelgruppe 8 of Jungmädeluntergau 713, both units of which are possibly located in the Metz region. Each BDM Pennant is in excellent condition, with unit numbers executed in the earlier chain stitched method. The earlier black BDM Pennant features the Hitler Youth style diamond, while the later red pennant features a black swastika on a white diamond. Both Pennants retain all three of their attachment clips. The later red Pennant retains its original RZM paper tag, while the earlier black Pennant exhibits only traces of the original RZM tag. No tears, rips or discoloration on either one. The Pennants measure approximately 37 inches in length, and inches 22 in height.

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.
