Original German WWII Wehrmacht Army Heer Officer Vehicle Staff Car Fender Pennant Flag Brought Home By A U.S. Veteran Certified
Original German WWII Wehrmacht Army Heer Officer Vehicle Staff Car Fender Pennant Flag Brought Home By A U.S. Veteran Certified. Following an age old military tradition the German armed forces of the Third Reich utilized a wide variety of identifying flags and pennants to distinguish Officers and Headquarters and included specific flags and pennants for use by Officers who command units as varied in size as the Army High Command to Battalion sized units. Generally the flags and pennants were designed utilizing the basic unit size tactical map symbols and the appropriate waffenfarbe, (Branch of Service Color). On November 10TH 1934 the OKH, Oberkommnado des Heeres, (Army High Command), introduced the national eagle vehicle pennants for use by all Officers and Officials with officer rank/position as an identifying emblem of rank. The vehicle pennant was to be flown from the right front fender of a military or private vehicle when the Officer was present. Additional regulations on August 13TH 1936 prescribed the addition of white border trim to the pennants. Further regulations of September 8TH 1938 also dictated that the vehicle flying the pennant be of German manufacture and in good condition. Most commonly the pennants were stiffened with an internal wire frame or an exterior clear celluloid cover. The non-stiffened pennants are usually associated with use on a private vehicle as opposed to a military vehicle. A very nice example of an original WWII German Wehrmacht Heer (Army) Flag Car / Automobile / Vehicle Fender Pennant used for officer vehicles. This pennant measures 12 inches by 8 inches and is single sided. It is constructed of gray cotton fabric, with a white cotton border stitching and a white Wehrmacht Heer embroidered eagle. Although though it is cut open at the back, most likely when it was removed from the vehicle it was on. It’s possible it was torn off as well. Only one side! Overall condition is very good, with minimal age toning or staining. These are rarely seen, and this is a great chance to add one to your collection. Ready to display!
