Here we have a medium sized NSDAP Flag by Flaggenfabrik Arfelstedt & Hornung of Hamburg + Altona (Nationalflagge/Parteiflagge 1933-45). It is constructed out of a red cotton base with two separately stitched on white cotton roundels that have printed black swastikas on them. The rectangular shaped obverse features a centrally placed black mobile swastika surrounded by a white roundel and red base. The reverse is the same as the obverse. The fly end has been folded over and stitched together. It also has 45 degree angle re-enforcing stitching to the fly end corners. The bottom edge has been folded over and stitched together. The hoist end has been folded over a white mounting string that is looped on both ends. The top hoist end has a white rayon and red cotton stitched on manufacturers tag that reads: “Flaggenfabrik Arfelstedt & Hornung Hamburg + Altona”. Just below the manufacturer’s tag is a rectangular discoloration spot. It is also stamped in black ink with the national eagle and “Waffen-SS #? SS-Flak-Ab” (Abteilung). It shows only the slightest soilage. It measures approximately 35 inches long by 23 inches tall. A perfect size for a display! When where and who ink stamped this original flag who can say?
