Kriegsmarine Flag materials
Having seen many Kriegsmarine flags on the Internet, but only having seen a few in person, I am wondering about the material used to make them. As the flags were - as I understand - made by many different companies of the time, are all the flags made the same way in terms of material (cotton I am assuming), or did the quality, material and weight thereof, and stitching vary between manufacturers?

I can only add a visual reference from my junk pile for you
Most all KM Kriegs Flags were made of a wool blend. This is why you will encounter them quite often full of moth holes.
