    That it's a fantasy piece. No such pennant of this design ever existed within the time period of the Third Reich.

    The fact that it didn't exist in the Third Reich.

    SS flags and pennants had white runes on a black background. The combination of a black symbol in a white roundel on a red background - as seen on the Swastika flag - was not used in this context.

    Delta International was a known purveyor of these type of fantasy pieces. They sold them in the 70's. So many of these fakes have now taken on an age and patina themselves, fooling many inexperienced collectors.
