    Default German Banner WW2?

    Hello Everyone,

    Got this, banner? flag? last night, the price was right and I am a sucker for flags. Haha! It is single-sided. The red material is almost exact to NSDAP flag material. There are no reinforcement areas in the corners. No areas were it looks like there were hangers. It is a two piece construction. It came from a military gun collection that was purchased by a friend and he didn't know what it was so I said I would take it. It looked interesting. It could be a WW2 German tablecloth. I looked at naval signal flags, nothing similar. Any ideas? Click image for larger version.

    I do not see anything that would indicate this is German 3rd Reich period.

    Surely not a signal flag.

    I would say, a homemade tablecloth or decorative drape, and from the colors and the construction, it may well be that this is a case of post-war recycling of a former Swastika flag or simply of surplus textile materials originally intended for the manufacture of Swastika flags (the red flag cloth as the base material and the black cloth for the Swastikas for the square cut-outs sewn on top).

    The notion is not absurd, as there are countless examples for this kind of recycling during the frugal immediate post-war period, when everything was in short supply.

    However, this is admittedly speculation on my part, and without very solid provenance, it will be hard to prove.

    John, are those American Racing rims? Very nice Mustang! I had a 68 Camaro but it was rusty, gray primer and had no engine or interior. Haha! It was a solid California car, here in NJ they are hard to find without huge holes in the floors as if HE artillery went through them. Thanks for the pic!

    Could it be a banner for a Burschenschaft, German student fraternity? The Nazi dissolved or absorbed the student fraternities.
    The Urburschenschaft was the first Burschenschaft, one traditional form of German student fraternities. (from Wiki)

    The German "resistance" flag of 1944 had the scheme of the Nordic Cross pattern in red, black and gold. Are there any known surviving flags of the German resistance in museums or private collections? Did the resistance have any other types of flags before Ernst Wirmer and other 20th July plotters designed the "Resistance" flag in 1944?
