    Interesting info. Imagine the flag of the Bismarck. I could just drape that over my roof completely.

    I just used the Flaggenbuch to assist with identifying this massive Gr 4 Standarte des Führers flag I just purchased. This would have flown on an KM vessel over 1500 t. Although in German, it’s easy to match up the sizes and descriptions.
