Title Reichskriegsfahne (Third Reich war flag) - Kriegsmarine
Nationality German
Period c 1939-45
Price £475.00

This fine flag (1.7m long) was made by Hannoversche Fahnenfabrik. It is the standard war flag, with navy markings, flown on all small ships of the German navy in WW2. In particular, this size was used as a commissioning flag for U-boats, viz early photos showing this.

The attention to detail is amazing, e.g. the strengthening lines of stitching at the far edge of the flag. There are no moth holes and the colours are beautifully bright. There is the odd little black mark from storage or wear conditions, but overall its condition is superb.

This was a veteran find brought back by a Coldstream Guardsman from the Baltic coast and sold to me by his son.
