Original German WWII Panzer Tank & Vehicle Identification Flag - 31" x 38"
Original Item: Only One Available. This an excellent unissued condition multi-piece construction German WWII Swas (hook cross) identification flag used for Panzer tanks and other vehicles. It measures approximately 31 x 38 inches and has the standard NSDAP Swas (Hook Cross) dyed onto a circular white field. This was then sewn onto the red cotton body of the flag. Condition is very good, and this looks to have seen only light use in the field. There are no tears or major damage we can see, and there is just a bit of staining on the white areas of the flag.
This flag features multi-piece construction and is single sided with plated steel grommets located in each corner. These grommets were secured to tension lines that secured the flag to the back of the tank laying flat. Thereby the flag was only visible to persons located above the tank. Generally these flags were intended to be seen by German airplanes so as not to be struck by friendly fire.
Most German tanks were destroyed during combat, so very few of these flags remained at the end of the war and most known examples were taken directly removed from tanks by USGIs in the field.
