    Default 150 x 250 Kriegs Flag

    One of the things I found tonight, It is in salty shape but I am very fond of it. 1.5x2.5m and has the appropriate stamp and reenforced sewing. My only question, is it typical that the reenforced end to be sew over or is this an extra modification?

    I can't answer your question, but I like your Kriegsflagge! These look nice with a bit of light damage, in my opinion.

    Thanks I too like the salty look even though moths may have been part of the wear I like to think that it was possibly flown on some type of vessel during the war, and I can only imagine where it has been

    I'm pretty sure I have seen that type of modification before. If I remember correctly this size of flag was the type that was flown in port off uboats. A nice find.

    Thanks panzer but I think it is off of a ship 500 to 1500 tons, not including u boats of the same weight? Not sure what falls under #7 but they might.

    I cannot recall seeing the reinforced edge folded and sewn like this. I would have thought such alteration would actually result in more wind damage than not. But, who knows? It looks period done, so why they did it is a mystery.
