Original German WWII NSDAP National Political Eight Pennant Strand Banner - 104" x 15"

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. Well, this is something that we have only had once before! This is a good condition WWII German NSDAP Political National Wimpel (Pennant) strand banner, which measures a very displayable 104inches long by 15 inches tall. It is made up of 8 pennants attached together, each measuring about 10 3/4" x 15". These were used inside buildings, over doorways, and in other places where appropriate. It looks to be of all cotton construction, and is double sided with cotton white circles dyed with black Swasen (Hook Crosses) sewn onto both sides each red pennant. Each of these has a small white dot in the center, and also look to be glued in the center to the red backing. We are not sure if these were supposed to have some type of insignia inserted, or whether this is just how they were made.

Condition is very good, and the strand banner shows very little evidence of having been used. The colors are very well retained, with age toning to the white circles along with some stains, and a vibrant red field. We suspect that this was once part of an even longer Pennant Banner, probably cut apart when it was captured.

The NSDAP, Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei, (National Socialist German Worker’s Party), was originally founded in Munich as the DAP, Deutsche Arbeiterpartei, (German Worker’s Party), on January 5TH 1919. When Adolf AH joined the DAP in the autumn of 1919 he was to reform what was basically a debating society into an active political party. Appointed as the first chairman of the party on July 29TH 1921 AH was to restructure it along para-military lines in a hierarchy of four levels of government.
