Original German WWII Army Heer Officer Rigid Vehicle Staff Car Pennant Flag

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This is a beautiful example of a desirable German WWII Army Heer Officer 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. This example is particularly nice, and is made of a magnetic metal frame, which has the fabric pennant stretched over it, with the correct insignia and color. 

The pennant displays the standard German WWII Wehrmacht Spread Wing Eagle, perched on top of a wreathed mobile Swas (hook cross). The Insignia is white on a gray background, the correct color for an Army Heer officer. The pennant is double sided, with the same embroidered insignia on both sides. The pennant measures about 8 1/2" H x 14" W, and is in excellent condition. It has two intact mounting brackets, which would be used to attach to the pole mounted on the vehicle.

Highly impressive and loaded with eye appeal, this is sure to make a great addition to any collection!

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 swas 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.
