KM flag... What do you think?

Article about: by Stinschen Thank you for the close-ups, IF this is a color run it would have to be caused by anything but water, that I know. But is it a color run or a spray paint run? It looks like over

    I'd expect all these flags were screen printed. I too believe more on the side
    that it was some type of liquid or other that has made the ink bleed
    and not over-spray, even though it looks like it.........

    I have never seen colors run like they appear to have on this flag. The images certainly raise doubt. This does not purport to be a Kreigsmarine flag as the edge bunting would have an eagle with "M" stamp. This pattern was used by all branches of the Wehrmacht.

    This is a Reichskriegsflagge which loosely translates to 'National War Flag',
    and were widely used, as Bob has said.

    A quick pass under a blacklight bulb, and a look at the construction
    of the edge and corner seams should reveal if it is good or not,
    regardless of the damage.........
