    What is this supposed to represent? I am unfamiliar with any wartime German organization with this name. The construction is not in keeping with 3rd Reich standards.

    I can't imagine HIAG items are faked.

    Apart from that:

    HIAG was founded in 1951. The nationwide umbrella organisation was disbanded in 1992, but HIAG continued to exist in decentralized form into the 21st century and for all I know until today.

    So, given that all HIAG items are postwar and that the timeframe for their manufacture and use had never officially ended, the question is: Just what would be a "fake" HIAG flag anyway? One whose manufacture was commissioned by somebody not actually acting as an officer of a HIAG chapter? How could one determine that?

    HIAG was officially disbanded in 1990's.

    I would not pay much for something like this. Personally I would not buy it at all.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Very well said and I guess very difficult to identify unless there are pic's of this exact Abbreviation/ emblem being used.

    I'll knock this back to the other side of the table and ask. So buxler, Have you seen this being used in an official capacity to think this might be affiliated with the HIAG ???

    The only other example of a HiAG flag I could find online (Jewish Ghetto Fighters House) is this form:

    A bit too political and far right I fear? ....... and outside the scope of the forum.

    Even if the flag is genuine, looking at the two photos it is going to be full of drawing pin holes...!!!e

    Andreas is quite correct although the main organisation of HIAG has been disbanded a few branches are still in existance today !
