    Default Flag/pennant/vimple

    Hi, I have this small flag/pennant/vimple, it is from the memorial place where the sub also is in Laboe in the kiel channel, I have never been there, but I have often sailed past with ships, and you can see the tower and the U-boat from the sea. Can anyone tell something about it, I`ve got it for about 30 years ago? I guess it is a piece made for tourists?
    Regards Yab.

    Hi Ken

    U 995 arrived in Kiel in 1972 when she was given to the Germans as a gift from the Norwegian Navy , the museum was built earlier, I believe.

    I have to say it looks like a post war souvenir

    Yes its a WW1 design flag. The reason I think its a souvenir is they surely wouldnt have a picture of a Uboat on it . Anyway let the flag experts confirm

    I believe the picture of the sailor is the famous painting depicting von Spee's defeat at The Battle of the Falkland Islands in 1914.
