    Hi!

    This belonged to a relative and has been locked away for many years.

    Was wondering if anyone could tell the exact origins of this flag and what the writings on the side could actually mean? I know they're places.

    It's a flag taken off a vehicle, right?

    Thanks.

    Yes, I wonder what such a flag was used for i.e. what type of vehicle (if a vehicle at all) and perhaps why those town names are on there.

    mmmmmmmmmm..................

    I think its a flag used by hitler youth or BDM and it sticks in top of a tent. The written words a all german cities and according my records in all these cities it was an annual meeting. So they write their attendance on the flag.
