Original Reichskriegsfahne; Tattered, but Proud (Item FLAG 5-1)


DESCRIPTION: Here is a good-sized war flag that was torn from a flagpole by a German soldier in Berlin at the Wehrmacht headquarters. He did this at the last minute thus exposing his life to danger! He was a patriotic soldier and he did this as a token of loyalty to his creed and devotion to the cause. He did not want to see this symbol of past glories fall into the hands of the Mongol hordes set loose from Hell that had destroyed the beautiful German capital. He knew he would not be able to carry a flagpole along in his escape so he tore the flag away from its mount thereby ripping it away from its bunting edge. So, what’s left is a war flag without the sailcloth-type edging to which one secured the rope that supported the attachment to the pole. So, what’s offered here is definitely an authentic Reichskriegsflagge taken in battle and the price is far less than one that would be in mint shape as the one listed below. Therefore, if it is the symbolism you seek, here is the real thing: tattered, but still proud with martial glory in its past. The size is 93 x 58 inches and you can see in our attached images that the bunting is missing and there are a few small rips and holes. These really do not detract from the flag’s overall dramatic appearance. This is truly a bargain at:

PRICE: SOLD

Early Party Banner (Item FLAG 5-2)

DESCRIPTION: This is the type banner that would hang from balconies, bridges, telegraph poles, etc during the hectic 1920’s during what the Nazis called the “Kampfzeit” (the time of the struggle for power). This because of its early form of Swastika it is quite rare. The usual Swastika was mobile (in other words turning). This is the squared off rigid symbol as used extensively by the SA. This large banner is 10 foot 3 inches long by 48 inches wide. It is old (72 years?) but still could be described as in excellent condition.

PRICE: SOLD

Reichskriegsflagge (War Flag) (Item FLAG 5-2; KRIEG 10-22)

DESCRIPTION: Here is one of the nicest one of these rare items that has come along in a long time. It’s the most desirable size at 150 x 250 cm (59 x 98 inches). It has all of the great bunting edge markings that anyone could desire. We have been able to discern one tiny moth hole at the end, but it doesn’t take anything anyway from the absolute beauty of this wonderful ensign. You just do not find them this nice anymore thus the price is quite reasonable considering all.

PRICE: $1,250.00

Reichskriegsfahne (War Flag) (Item FLAG 5-3)

DESCRIPTION: Here is possibly one of the nicest, cleanest, and most-sought-after war flags of this size we have ever offered. This one measures 31 x 53 inches; the perfect N.S. Wehrmacht collectible. It has the lanyard loops and the German size is noted in the bunting edge where it shows “Kr.FI. 80 x 135.” The letters “Kr.Fl.” stand for Kriegsflagge. The company of manufacture is shown as well–Lorenz Summa Söhne in Oberkotzau. This is a small municipality in upper Franconia in the district of Hof in Bavaria. The flag is in absolute mint condition and seldom do they ever show up like this. Don’t miss it!

PRICE: $875.00; A bargain!

Original Bugle Banner with RZM Acceptance Label (Item FLAG 5-4; SS 38-14)

DESCRIPTION: Here is a genuine SS Trumpet Banner with the SS runes on one side and the standard swastika flag on the other side. Evidently, this was the only general-issue trumpet banner distributed by the inner offices of the Allgemeine-SS. Many Pakistani-made copies of SS banners in all shapes and forms are seen regularly on various websites. The major difference here is that this one is an actual SS issue. At the topmost middle section high above the runics one can see two cloth labels one above the other that contain the “RZM” issue wording “Von Reichsführer SS befohlene Ausführung” and the tag below this has the RZM SS numbers for this particular issue. The meaning of the tag on top would be proclaiming that the Reichsführer-SS Heinrich Himmler has approved the issue of this particular piece. In all the years I have been engaged in the procurement of rare NS items I have never actually found an issue bugle banner. Many of us who are collectors and dealers are familiar with a similar tag that is found in issue SS armbands. When one of these is found it has much more value than the later type that did not have a label, or had a paper label. In our estimation, this bugle banner so marked, is exceptionally rare and important. This piece measures 28 x 18½ inches including the fringe. It has three support tabs at the top that would fit the bottom rail of the trumpet. On the swastika side, there are two small tears about seven inches from the top. The item has been carefully checked with black light and passes all tests. This is 100 percent an original-issue SS relic. For those of you that have continually requested of us a genuine SS trumpet banner, “finally” here is the best one you will probably ever see!

PRICE: $3,500.00

Command Flag of Großadmiral of the Kriegsmarine (Item FLAG 5-5; KRIEG 10-28)

DESCRIPTION: The rank of Großadmiral–Grand Admiral–was equivalent to the Royal Navy’s rank of Admiral of the Fleet, and the U.S. Navy’s Fleet Admiral of the United States Navy, both five-star, flag-officer ranks. Only two individuals attained the rank of Grand Admiral during the Third Reich period: General Admiral Erich Raeder, then-Commander in Chief of the Kriegsmarine, was made a grand admiral on 1 April 1939, which he held until his resignation on 30 January 1943. Admiral Karl Dönitz, commander of the U-boat force, replaced Raeder as Commander in Chief of the Kriegsmarine, and assumed the rank of grand admiral at that time. This 12-inch-square flag is of the size normally flown on an admiral’s barge or a captain’s gig while the officer was aboard making ship-to-ship or ship-to-shore trips. This flag is of white-wool construction and has a multicolored, printed image of the insignia of the grand admiral. It features a golden-yellow Wehrmacht-style national eagle with black-and-brown accents superimposed over multicolored, crossed grand admiral’s batons, and a black-and-white bordered black Iron Cross. The batons feature blue staffs with golden-yellow, brown, silver, and black accents and detailing. Each has a golden-yellow fouled anchor and a black Iron Cross within diamond-shaped borders and fluted end pieces. Both sides of the flag have the image with the eagle facing towards the hoist edge (forward). The top, bottom, and fly edges of the flag have a dual-ply hem and the hoist edge has a dual-ply cotton bunting with a small tunnel-looped suspension rope. This is an extremely scarce rank/command flag for the highest rank in the Kriegsmarine. It has a few scattered moth holes but overall . . . excellent plus.

PRICE: $3,200.00

Décor Banner with Swastika and Tassels (Item FLAG 5-6)

DESCRIPTION: This odd, but authentic, banner was the type used and hung from a crossbar and carried much like a “Germany Awake” standard. Many such draperies and banners were used in the gaily bedecked streets of Munich in 1937. The event was known as 2000 years of German culture and it was possibly the greatest dramatization of the importance of Teutonic “Kultur” and beauty ever assembled. The wonderful parade featured mobile floats, equestrian Teutonic knights, lovely German maidens, and almost every depiction of swastikas that could possibly exist. The parade was to celebrate the opening of the Haus der Deutschen Kunst where the finest of true German art was on display and revered by the people. Today the museum is still there but filled with the most hideous, filthy, iniquitous garbage that the diabolic, depraved Marxists pass off as art. We believe this banner might well be one of the special trappings of this marvelous event. The banner measures about 45 x 29 inches including the tassels. It is in good shape other than having a few stains here and there. This is a rare Third Reich trapping, indeed.

Very Nice Kriegsmarine (Naval) Battle Flag (Item FLAG 5-7; KRIEG 10-29)

DESCRIPTION: Here is a really fine Kriegsflagge in the highly desirable size 67 x 39 inches. This rarely found flag has all the markings that collectors try to obtain. It has the eagle stamp that sits on the large “M” that shows the flag is for the Marine (navy ). Then it has the German size in centimeters noted as 100 X 170 (39 x 67 inches) and then is seen the company that manufactured it. In this case, it was by the firm “G.A.Fröhlichs Sohn A.G.Warnsdorf. Sud.” It also bears the initials “R.Kr.Fl.” which stands for “Reichskriegsflagge.” The flag is in practically mint condition with one tiny hole (really tiny!!!). If you have ever sought a really good-looking naval flag here it is! This one is a little different from the usual battle flag in that it does not have a hoisting rope. Rather, it has an open channel that would accept a hanging rod and it was probably made for display in a naval installation or fleet headquarters—RARE!

PRICE: $785.00; a bargain, for sure!

Preposterously Huge NS Flag (Item FLAG 5-8)

DESCRIPTION: Here is the largest National Socialist flag we have ever offered. It is ‘awesome’ measuring 144 inches by 133 inches. It has a few rips and tears, but is in generally good condition; keep in mind how old it is!. We have placed a German helmet on the flag to give the viewer some perspective as to the immense scale of this Hakenkreuzfahne. Want to convince your PC neighbors that you are not politically correct? Why not get a large pole and run this bad guy up in front of your house! (Freedom of Expression). Isn’t that what it is called?

Great Reichskriegsflagge (Item FLAG 5-9)

DESCRIPTION: Here is an original mint-condition military flag used by all sections of the Wehrmacht in WWII; however, they almost never are found in this pristine condition. This could well be the best one you will ever encounter. It is the size most desired by collectors; the size is printed on the bunting edge as 100 x 170, and that is in centimeters and corresponds to about 39 X 67 inches. Along the edging are the letters “LOH.KR-FL” meaning “Kriegsflagge.” Both of the hoisting rope loops are there. We assume this flag was not for naval usage since the eagle and “M” stamp are not indicated here. It was probably meant for army or air force display. Here is without a doubt the epitome of Kriegsfahne. Of all the German WWII flags, this war flag seems to always be the favorite for collectors worldwide, and this one in this condition just has to be the very best!!!

PRICE: $950.00
