Need help identifying please
I found this at an estate sale with numerous WW1 military items and are having a hard time trying to identify this item or from what time period it was from. We assume its off a German hat based on the flags colors but just cant find any that look like it at all. I would appreciate any info you might have or maybe a point in the right direction. Thank you.

Well, its post war German and my guess would be Naval and non- military, but its not my area.
Welcome to the forum!
I would agree with Douglas.

Definitely post war German .
It does occur to me that that flag was used by The Wiemar Republic (1919-33) but I think it is more commonly seen on postwar items.
Interesting piece...It appears that the flag is rising -as the sun- to herald the dawn of the new Republik and its colors Schwarz-Rot-Gold...The bullion wreath suggests Reichsmarine...I'm speculating here, but I am inclined to believe that this may be a Weimar-era Patriotic piece, for civilian wear...
