    Hi I’m new to this forum, I have this flag in my possession and I am wandering if it might be a reproduction. I’ve performed the burn test and the material is not synthetic it burns to ash very quickly without forming a hard plastic ball. It is stamped Kiel 1940 85x150 which I believe is not an official size. The glow test is difficult to determine as the white on this flag does not glow with the intensity of modern white fabric or paper but it does glow, the flag has a slight fabric softener odour to it which makes me believe it may have been washed by a previous owner at some stage. I would love to hear any opinions as I would like to learn more

    Many thanks
    Joel

    Best to post this in the German section for most replies.

    A moderator should be able to move to the correct section. I am not sure if a user can do that without creating a new post.

    Joel,

    I moved both your topic posts to the appropriate Third Reich Flags and Banners section.

    Unfortunately, this flag and the ink stamps are fake.

    The late Ben Weed was one of the most respected and knowledgeable folks I knew regarding flags and banners, and I went through 30 pages of his research and found a similar flag to yours which was determined to be fake.

    Based on what I am seeing this also appears to be a flag made by Delta International in the 1960's and 1970s.
