Original German WWII Rare D.D.A.C. Vehicle Fender Small Pennant Flag - Der Deutsche Automobil Club
Original Item: Only One Available. Der Deutsche Automobil Club (DDAC - The German Automobile Club) was the only authorized automobile club in Germany during the Third Reich. The club absorbed the ADAC and other automobile clubs in 1934, shortly following the rise of Hitler to the position of Führer und Reichskanzler (leader and chancellor of the Reich). The DDAC provided roadside assistance to members and was closely affiliated with the NSKK. These "Clubs" were used by the Nazis to encourage Automobile skills as they did for Flying skills during the time when Germany was still not allowed and Military organizations.
This is a very nice example of a D.D.A.C. Vehicle Wimpel (Pennant), which would be flown on a small staff attached to the fender of the automobile or other vehicle it was attached to. The pennant measures 9 1/4 inches by 6 1/4 inches and is double sided. It displays the D.D.A.C. emblem in a central oval, at the intersection of a white and red 'Balkan Cross'. The field of the pennant is white, though age and staining have turned it more of a beige color. Unlike most that we see, this pennant is not dyed, but embroidered, and the emblem itself is as well.
The pennant still has the top clip and bottom ring, and is in very good condition over all. there are some wear and small stains, but nothing major. A great addition to any German WWII collection!
