    Default DAF Town Flag "OSTEN"

    I got this about ten years ago and was one of my first TR items collected. When I bought it , it was in pieces and I sewed them together until I can get a tailor to restore it properly. It is from the town "Osten" in Northern germany. There are five chrome suspension rings left. I paid $75, talked down from $100. Aint too bad!

    The first photo on this post is an example of the DAF flag. However, that is not a German on the motorcycle, but an American GI donning a stahlhelm in front of the flag he captured.

    Shame the elements were removed from this flag. You must be sure to align
    the cog in the exact position it was in before it was cut off, as well as
    the ID patch, as Horst mentioned..........
