Original German Pre-WWII Double Pennant Flag - German Youth Organization & 1936 Summer Olympics
Original Item: Only One Available. Here is a very nice German Pre-WWII Double Pennant Flag (Wimpel), which consists of an Olympic Ring Pennant on top and a HJ (German Youth Organization) Pennant below. They are both attached to the same hanging halyard, and would have been displayed together during the 1936 Berlin Summer Olympics. They are both in very nice used condition, with a lovely aged look.
The Olympic pennant measures about 7" x 10 1/4" and is made of a single piece light canvas, while the HJ pennant is about 6" x 10", and is made of multiple pieces of cotton, sewn together. A great pre-war set, very colorful and ready to display!
The HJ or jugend, and often abbreviated as HJ in German, was the youth organization of the NSDAP Party in Germany. Its origins dated back to 1922 and it received the name jugend, Bund deutscher Arbeiterjugend ("HJ, League of German Worker Youth") in July 1926. From 1933 until 1945, it was the sole official youth organization in Germany and was partially a paramilitary organization; it was composed of the HJ proper for male youths aged 14 to 18, the German Youngsters in the HJ (Deutsches Jungvolk in der jugend or "DJ", also "DJV") for younger boys aged 10 to 14, and the League of German Girls (Bund Deutsche Mädel or "BDM").
