A Communist flag? Or perhaps a Manoeuver flag...The lack of manufacturer/size-markings is odd for a German flag, otherwise I would've speculated that it's a Swastika banner that has been butchered...
Perhaps an unfinished flag???
What more information do you have?
Looks pretty square (not a rectangle)-could be a range flag, flown at rifle ranges etc to indicate live firing is taking place-national flags etc are usually rectangular.
Im afraid i have no more info than what i have given there was a selection of medals but they went a long time ago what sort of marking do flags have apart from the ovious is there any that i may of missed or anything else unique to german flags sorry im new to all this thanks for your help so far
I dont even know how long it had been tucked away up there
German flags generally have metric size markings and manufacturer's stamps visible on the white strip...
Sorry I can't be of any more help in determining purpose/origin of this piece...
