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.
Thanks to ade for this aide

clarifications on possible types of ships that #7 may be would be of great interest
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.
"Much that once was, is lost. For none now live who remember it."
Oops. I guess I'm a little tired. I was thinking of the 100x170. Still a nice flag though.
