Wehrmacht Vehicle Identification Flag

Description

Wehrmacht vehicle identification flag (Fahrzeug Erkennungsflagge). Probably one of the most recognizable items associated with the Nazi regime (third Reich) is the swastika flag. Utilized by almost all the organization of the Third Reich. This is a special flag with grommets in the corners, used for vehicle identification from the air to avoid being bombed by other German units. The banners either had the black swastika in a white field on a red background or a Balkan Cross on white on a red background, this one is showing a swastika. The single-sided multi-piece construction flag is sized approximately 200 x 95 cms and is complete with all four metal grommets. The flag has a red cotton base with a separate, machine stitched white roundel, having a black printed on Swastika, to the center. The flag shows some minor traces of storage and is in overall mint and unissued condition, see photos. Rare original Swastika vehicle identification flag in very good condition!
