    Default HQ Command flag?

    Hi, I have this 400x295mm rectangular flag, dark yellow field divided by a black cross. It has been fixed, with hobnails, to a Heer tent pole section, which has a circular manufacturers stamp (Berlin) and an unreadable date?
    I think it's a Commanders flag, any suggestions?

    Just seen an identical one to this on wehrmacht-awards.com
    Yellow and Black Car pennant? - Wehrmacht-Awards.com Militaria Forums

    I've had my one for over twenty five years.....

    By the many views - and 0 comments - I don't think
    many have ever seen a flag such as this, including
    myself.........

    Well, there are two on Wehrmacht-Awards.com Militaria Forum on which is mounted on a tent pole exactly like mine and the flag is documented elsewhere, also as a triangular pennant. Maybe it's just not very interesting....

    I didnt know what to write Sir. I have never seen such a flag/ pennant before. It doesent mean it is a uninteresting piece of history.

    Sorry, I wasn't being dismissive or rude, it's just that I've had it for more than twenty five years and it's just been stuck in a box until now, I've only just tried to find out what it is. I guess it's one of those things that had a use at the time.
    Thanks for responding, there is so much out there that needs uncovering and explaining!
    Happy hunting!

    You should see if you could find a fitting period photo of one in use. print it in big format and in high quality resolution. Then you have a nice piece to have in your museum.

    An interesting piece that is a first for me also. I note that Old Flags Wanted noted that positive identification of this flag has never been conformed in a period chart. Yes it is period made and provenance appears to identify it as German. The question is how does one confirm it's true identity of use.

    Heck, I think it's a really cool flag and the fact that nobody can identify it, makes it more interesting! Reminds me of flags of the Gothic era that Knights used, which is a fascinating subject.

    Cool flag!

    From the dimensions and size it could possibly be a ships signal flag.
