    Default Volksdeutsche h j unit flag?

    Attached are pictures of what i believe to be a Hitler Youth Volksdeutsche Gefolgschaftfahne. The standard Gefolgschaftfahne would have unit numbers in the corner patch. This flag has the name of a place or thing. At first, i thought possibly this could be the name of a school. I finally turned to Google, which brought up Adolfstal as a village in Yugoslavia. Possibly, this was a Volksdeutsche village. If so, it is possible that the area was not large enough to encompass a normal H J unit structure, thus, the village name on the corner patch.
    I would appreciate anyone's thoughts on this flag. It is in pristeen condition, leading me to think it had never been awarded.

    Hi Bob, it is a beautiful looking flag. I have always had a fondness for the HJ design.

    I did a search on the place name and also came up with a possible candidate in Czechoslovakia.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Adolfstal was a smal town in Serbia ex Yugoslavia and it dasent exsist any more, it was completly destroyed by the titos bandits after the 2 WW, becourse it was populated only by german nationality !!!

    If this is indeed from Bosnia the H.J. unit could have worn the "Reichs-deutcheJugend, Auslander" worded Gebiet triangle and the "D.J." cyphered H.J. shoulder straps. There was an H.J. Bann from Bosnia that wore these straps, "Deutche Jugend 1" for Kroatien -Bann 1 Ostsyrmien. Just a possibly that could be further explored. A rare flag nonetheless which demands further research IMO to positively confirm which H.J. Bann used it in the period IMO.

    The Banns from Kroatien were named and numbered as follows:

    Bann 1 Ostsyrmien
    Bann 2 Save-Donau
    Bann 3 Unterdrau
    Bann 4 Mitteldrau

    It is possible they wore the "Ausland" triangle or a triangle with the name as an "Ober Zips" triangle has been documented for Slowakei - Bann " Ober Zips" "D.J. 3".

    Triangle photo from Helmut Weitze. Straps photo from my collection. Bann information from "Sonny" and Wim Saris.
