    Not an organisation, but probably something to do with Sommer Sonnenwende (summer solstice) which was a pagen? rite involving bonfires, re-introduced (or latched upon) by the Nazi party.

    This looks much like the symbol of the KdF-Kraft durch Freude (Strength Through Joy) Organization, the Party's recreation/leisure organization for workers under the auspices of the DAF/German Labor Front...

    I don't think that's the KdF symbol, Glenn. It looks similar but a bit different.



    The way the arms of the swastika are tapered reminds me of some of the Hoheitsabzeichen worn by Party members.

    Thanks Erno...I stand corrected and have changed my post accordingly...Perhaps it is indeed a Solstice Symbol as mentioned above...

    Those headdresses the women are wearing are a bit weird....

    It doesn't ring any bells in terms of being for any specific Nazi organization, and it is most definitely not the KdF symbol. I tend towards it being of a wholly artistic/decorative/ceremonial nature.
