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.
"The German Army is the perfectly adapted, perfectly running Machine. The difference is that the Germans are organised with a view to War...with the cold, hard, practical and business-like purpose of winning victories."
G.W. Steevens - The Daily Mail (1897)
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.
To quote a comedian:
"All done in the BEST possible taste...!"
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.
Whatever its just an opinion.
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.

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.
I have my flags on show in my den but the wife still goes mad when she walks past , as you can see i really dont listen to her
Atta boy Ronnie....you tell her.......but softly
