    Default Patriotic flags in Berlin's ruins

    Gents,
    Has anyone seen any pics online of Berlin in the later stages of the war where people have placed little flags around the place in the ruins to show their solidarity? I know I've seen pics like this but I'm buggered if I can find any now that I want some! I have an idea for a display I want to make up and a pic like this would be perfect. The flags I'm talking about are the small triangular pennant type and the little paper flags. Any help would be much appreciated, thanks boys,

    Dave.

    I was reminded of this slogan.
    There is also a flag.
    No small pennants though.

    Have you tried searching the Bundesarchiv image database:

    I've tried searching the Bundesarchiv before and had nothing but dramas with their site and they wouldn't sell me any images with swastikas unless I was a museum! I eventually bought an image from the IWM in London but I don't think they'll have the sort of image I'm after this time. Thanks anyway mate!

    I must admit I have never had any issues ordering photos either for my publishing business for a licensing fee or when I have downloaded images using my personal use account for free?

    I wanted to buy a pic of the fuhrerbunker from them and they sent me an email saying that they wouldn't sell it to me unless I could show that it was for an educational publication on the nazi era, they said that they wouldn't sell any pic for private use. I eventually got a pic from the IWM, not the exact pic I wanted, but one that did the job.

    I hadn't thought about looking there Nick although I have seen the site. I'll have a look through. I also have the book "Berlin Then and Now", there may be something in there, I'll have a look tonight. Thanks for your help mate.

    All I can say is that yours was very different experience than mine as I have not had to pay for images "for private use" from the Bundesarchiv, I just log-in with my user name & password, select images and complete the "private use" option and download from an emailed link. Although like the one below of Fritz August Seidler, a notorious "baby-faced" guard at Auschwitz I did pay a license fee (circa 12 Euros per shot) as this was one of about a dozen or so I ordered for a commercial project in 2012 rather than educational, the latter of which I think are also free of fees.

    update:

    I just went to the Bundesarchiv picture database, logged in and found this example image of "fuhrerbunker" which I selected for private use, and from the screen grabs below you can see no fee is chargeable and I can if I want to order it from the link:
