The 1935 order is specific: command-flags for the Chief-of-Staff, OSAF and Gruppe were embroidered.
For Gruppe it was said: name or the group in white embroidery (eingestickt). Just the outlines, not
filled (nur umrandet). With a brigade-flag nothing was said about a silbergrey embroidered eagle,
but just the indication outlined (and so for Standarte and Sturmbann). In a general section it was
said it was allowed to use printed flags. The order is - frankly said - somewhat confusing about
embroidery and printed versions.
