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

Wanted to let you know the items arrived today. Great job on the packing. Too often I buy very expensive and irreplaceable items from the UK and they get sent barely packed to protect them from the various postal services - appreciate you going the extra mile to insure it arrived in the shape it left. Thanks again, look forward to doing business with you in the future. Items were very nice, exactly as offered.
