Original German WWII Service Worn NSDAP National Flag Small Political Banner - 29" x 63"
Original Item: Only One Available. This is a very nice service worn condition WWII German National Banner, which measures a very displayable 29 inches wide by 63 inches long. These were displayed on buildings, on podiums during speeches, or sometimes even hung up at camps. It is of all cotton construction, and is double sided with a single piece cotton white circles with black Swasen (Hook Crosses or Swass) dyed onto both sides.
Condition is good, with a very nice faded look on both sides of the banner. It definitely appears to have been hanging outside for some time, and there are water stains on the central white circle around the Swas. There are also some small tears, holes, and areas of wear through as shown. The ends of the pole slot were sewn shut with black thread, and a white lanyard sewn into place, so this may have been hung at an angle or possibly perpendicular to the ground. Loads of history on this banner!
