Don't recognise the flag, but the geezer 5th from left......His face seems to ring a bell.

I,d like to have been able to ring the geezers neck!!!!!!
Lol...are you guys suggesting that the "geezer" is Hitler?
Certainly looks like him, possibly inter war years
Ha-ha, 'Like'......... !
Probably the flag of one the many 'völkisch' organisations which preceded the Nazis. Given the outdoor location and the youth of the subjects, perhaps one of 'wandervogel' groups of the German youth movement. A lot of völkisch groups used the swastika in one or other of its variations. Before 1933, the swastika was a common symbol all over the place. With the poor quality of the image it is difficult to date - perhaps 1920s? or earlier?
