Title Reichskriegsfahne (Third Reich war flag) - Kriegsmarine
Nationality German
Period c 1939-45
Sold

This fine flag (1.7m long) was made by Hannoversche Fahnenfabrik. It is the standard war flag, with navy markings, flown on all small ships of the German navy in WW2. In particular, this size was used as a commissioning flag for U-boats, viz early photos showing this.

The attention to detail is amazing, e.g. the strengthening lines of stitching at the far edge of the flag. There are no moth holes and the colours are beautifully bright. There is the odd little black mark from storage or wear conditions, but overall its condition is superb.

This was a veteran find brought back by a Coldstream Guardsman from the Baltic coast and sold to me by his son.

testimonials

Today I received your flag. It's very nice and looks genuine to me. Beautifull crisp colors! It looks barely used. It's a nice addition to my ww2 collection. I would even say, one of my top pieces.

Thanks for your excellent service and top communication!

I will check your site more often to see if you have more nice pieces.
