Original German WWII NSDAP Double Sided National Political Banner Flag - 58" x 37"
Original Item: Only One Available. This is a very nice WWII German National Socialist Political Banner or possibly flag (Nationalflagge/Parteiflagge 1933-45), which measures a very displayable 58" x 37". These could be hung vertically or horizontally, and were displayed on buildings, on podiums during speeches, or sometimes even hung up at camps. It looks to be of all cotton construction with a two piece red field, and is double sided, with a single piece cotton white circle with a sewn on black Swas (Hook Cross) on each side. It is made from relatively lightweight fabric.
One of the narrow sides has had three hanging ties installed, so this definitely looks to be a banner intended for vertical display. Overall condition is very good, though it definitely does show wear from service. There are some small holes and pulling on the red field, and the central white circles show stains in addition to some small holes. There is also a small tear next to one of the hanging ties.
In very nice condition, this would be perfect for a German WWII wall display!
The NSDAP, officially the National Socialist German Workers' Party (German: Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei or NSDAP), was a far-right political party in Germany active between 1920 and 1945 that created and supported the ideology of N**ism. Its precursor, the German Workers' Party (Deutsche Arbeiterpartei; DAP), existed from 1919 to 1920. The Party emerged from the extremist German nationalist, racist and populist Freikorps paramilitary culture, which fought against the communist uprisings in post–World War I Germany. The party was created to draw workers away from communism and into völkisch nationalism. Initially, N**i political strategy focused on anti–big business, anti‑bourgeois, and anti‑capitalist rhetoric. This was later downplayed to gain the support of business leaders, and in the 1930s the party's main focus shifted to antisemitic and anti‑Marxist themes.
Ad**f Hi**er, the party's leader since 1921, was appointed Chancellor of Germany by President Paul von Hindenburg on 30 January 1933. Hitl** rapidly established a totalitarian regime known as the Third Reich. Following the defeat of the Third Reich at the end of World War II in Europe, the party was "declared to be illegal" by the Allied powers, who carried out denazification in the years after the war both in Germany and in territories occupied by NSDAP forces. The use of any symbols associated with the party is now outlawed in many European countries, including Germany and Austria.
