    The construction and design of this patch does not show any signs of it being related to the 3rd Reich.

    It's Gymnastics-related; apparently a sports clothing patch from some gymnastics club/association.

    The central design with the four red "F"s is the so-called Turnerkreuz [Gymnasts' Cross]; the letters stand for the gymnasts' traditional motto "frisch, frei, fröhlich, fromm" [= "fresh, free, joyous, pious".] See: http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turnerkreuz (German language).

    The stylized "Q" around the symbol would appear to have something to do with the name and/or location of the club/association.
