I had seen the thread on frauenschaft flags so figured I'd show a frauenschaft pennant (1 sided) I picked up lately and also show a banner(?) or as some have said to me perhaps a sash that might have been worn during a ceremony or something. In any case any comments are appreciated and if anyone has any info on the person named in the banner that too would be much welcome. The sash is about 9 ft long. As of yet I can find no information online about this eugen billig. From the translations I have gotten the wording roughly means : To our esteeemed Papa Hilden and the other wording if I remember correctly means roughly translated to "dedicated to eugen billig upon his taking of office at city hall 4 4 1933. A member on another forum sent me this email and what they thought the wording referred to. Sorry if they are a member here & I have not mentioned their name). The information below:
“My Revered or even My Venerated” which I believe, if referring to a person, would only be used in the extremely familiar sense and would probably not be used for a public figure. Another thought to consider is that Germans often personalize the inanimate in the “Paternal” form, rather than the “Maternal” that we are familiar with. The most obvious example being “The Father Land.” When you consider that “Papa-Hilden” was placed in quotations and hyphenated I would tend to believe that it referred to the town itself ( My Revered “Father Town”) rather than an individual. In keeping with this thinking, notice the additional “outline” embellishments to certain words. Now follow the progression like this - Office, Building, Town.
Again any help, info or thoughts are appreciated.
