Original German WWII NSDAP National Socialist Large Pennant & Small Flag Set
Original Item: Only One Set of Two Available. This is a very nice set of German WWII NSDAP National Socialist Party flags, consisting of a large pennant and a small rectangular flag. During the WWII era the NSDAP was very committed to the use of flags and other symbols to solidify their influence in the country.
The German NSDAP National Socialist Wimpel (Pennant) is of multi-piece construction, doubled sided with sewn on white circles bearing dyed swas emblems on each side. The pennant measures about 16" in hoist and 37" in fly, with a hemmed over header sleeve for suspension. One end of this was sewn shut, so it was probably attached to a pole for display. It definitely shows age toning and staining, so this was definitely displayed for a long period of time.
The small NSDAP National Socialist flag is also double sided, with sewn on white circles with dyed swas emblems on them. It measures 11 1/4 x 17 1/2", with one end hemmed over to form a hanging slot. The colors are still very vibrant, and it shows only a bit of age toning in the white circles. There are a few small holes in the insignia on one side, probably from insect damage.
A very nice German WWII NSDAP pennant and flag set, ready to add to your collection!
The National Socialist German Workers' Party (Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei, abbreviated NSDAP), commonly known in English as the NSDAP Party, was a political party in Germany between 1919 and 1945. It was known as the German Workers' Party (DAP) before the name was changed in 1920.
The party's last leader, Adolf AH, was appointed Chancellor of Germany by president Paul von Hindenburg in 1933. AH rapidly established a totalitarian regime known as the Third Reich.
The National Socialist Motor Corps (NSKK) was a paramilitary organization of the NSDAP that officially existed from May 1931 to 1945. The group was a successor organisation to the older National Socialist Automobile Corps (NSAK), which had existed since April 1930.
The NSKK served as a training organization, mainly instructing members in the operation and maintenance of high-performance motorcycles and automobiles. The NSKK was further used to transport NSDAP and SA officials/members. The NSKK also served as a roadside assistance group in the mid-1930s, comparable to the modern-day American Automobile Association or the British Automobile Association. The outbreak of World War II in Europe caused the NSKK ranks to be recruited to serve in the transport corps of various German military branches. There was also a French section of the NSKK, which was organised after the German occupation of France began in 1940. The NSKK was the smallest of the NSDAP Party organizations.
