An injection molded aluminum badge roughly in the form of a horizontal oval, 42mm across. To its top is a soaring eagle clutching a wreathed, mobile swastika in its talons. To either side of the swastika is scrolled “Seefahrt” (Seafaring) and “Ist Not” (Is Necessary). The base of an anchor may be seen to the base of the surround, with “Tag Der Deutschen” (Day Of German) and “Seefahrt 126.96.36.1995” (Seafaring 188.8.131.525) scrolled to either side. The central image on the badge is that of a three-quarter profiled, three-mast sailing vessel, under sail on rough seas.
