Original German WWII German DAF Labor Front 57" x 50" Fringed Flag - Deutsche Arbeitsfront
Original Item: Only One Available. The DAF (Deutsche Arbeitsfront or German Labor Front) was a National Socialist trade union that supplanted independent unions once the NSDAPs had come to power in Germany. This 57" x 50 Fringed Flag was most likely originally displayed on a pole inside DAF offices. It appears to be made of woven red wool, with cotton white and black DAF emblems on each side. The fringe is silver bullion, and is relatively heavy.
The flag does have damage due to wear and moth, which can be seen in the photographs. It also appears that the header, where the mounting holes would be, was removed, and that side hemmed, which is why that side does not have the fringe. Straight out of an old collection, ready to display!
With the dissolution of all Free Trade Unions in Germany in May 1933 the Deutsche Arbeitsfront, (German Labor Front), was established to replace the unions and to educate the workers in industry and commerce for smooth and efficient operation of all labor in the Third Reich. In October 1934 the DAF was given official status as a sub-section of the NSDAP and in March 1936 it was recognized as an independent NSDAP affiliated association and granted control of its own monetary budget. With this money it was able to procure it's own signs and other insignia.
