If you look through that link I posted, you'll notice that the Black-Red-Yellow of the Weimar and the post war Germany is pretty consistant. But the Configuration of the WWI/German Empire flag is very much different from the Weimar's. The WWI German flag was laid out as Black-White-Red whereas the Weimar is only similar with having the Black on Top-the rest was switched around and changed. The WWI flag's center strip of White was swapped for the Weimar's center strip of Red. The Black-Red-yellow could Only have been used in the 1919-1933 era and the post-war 1949 on up eras. With your flag's materials being a coarser woolen or woven cotton cloth, I am still thinking the construction looks to be earlier than 1949+. But, either way, it's still a very nice flag and in great condition.

Thank you for your input William, It will make a nice addition to the war room
This picture is from Stonemints Weimar cap thread, but shows evidence of the colors used during the time period.
Nice looking flag and an Interesting topic. I have not yet delved into this era of Germany , so this is new knowledge to me. Thanks for all your help, everyone!
