    This has been a great thread to read... most enjoyable. Like many here, I have a series of flags, but display them all together as a group so there is a mix. Some of my friends are Jewish, to include having lost relatives in Auschwitz. They have seen my collection, and understand my historical aspect/interest versus any other approach to it. My friends and family likewise appreciate seeing items I find at times, and there has never been an issue about displaying any of them. I posted a few shots of the flags below...

    Excellent display! Wish I had room for a similar display.

    Used a Nazi flag as a bedspread once....when I was 14, it lost my parents the sale of our house, and got me a sore bottom !
    Prost ! Steve.

    Not really a laughing matter, sorry. But I have vivid imagination and could just see the prospective buyers opening the door to your room and seeing a TR bedspread.

    On a related note, my late father would have been far more disgusted with me if I displayed a Japanese flag than he would a German flag, because like many British WWII Veterans he could not abide the Japanese for what they did to the POW's in the far east. They are just artifacts from an important period of world history and no one would complain if you had items from the Roman Empire or from Napoleon, both of whom committed mass atrocities during their time and never forget what the Soviets did.

    The only TR period German flag I have these days does not have a Swastika on it, so no problem with displaying it and it hangs in my study with most of my collection. The soviet flag I have hangs in the upstairs hallway along with some other flags, Jeez, I even have an apartheid period S. African flag which some might find a bit "odd". Going back to the Germans, lets not forget that during the first world war they were vilified and hated by many in Britain (and elsewhere I assume) but no one goes on about that these days and with the passing of time I assume that even the Nazi's will find some acceptance as being merely part of our history, though I expect it will take some time.

    I dont have a NSDAP flag and I dont really plan on getting one. They are not really interesting enough for the hassle they cause. I would prefer a nice american war bonds poster or an Imperial Prussian state flag.

    Cheers, Pat

    People can be incredible hypocrites or ignorant....or both; I asked a work mate, who showed up in a 'fashionable' USSR hammer & sickle adorned T-shirt, if it was okay, for someone to wear a swastika T-shirt. With the aforementioned bovine look of consternation, he said "No of course not, the symbol represents a criminal mass murdering regime, responsible for the death and suffering of millions of people!"

    Yup! Jerry's dad was like my grandparents. My dad had long since forgiven the Japanese, but my grandmother had not. Any mention of "Japanese" anything was liable to get my grandmother riled up.

    Later in life, I met some Filipino vets who told me of witnessing attrocities. The old story of soldiers spearing babies on bayonets is apparently not an urban legend.
