OUTSTANDING (almost mint) Original WWII German Hitler Youth DJ FANFARE TRUMPET BANNER. (Trompete Fahne) Certified. The DJ, “Deutsche Jungvolk” (German Youth), originated in Vienna, Austria in 1929, and was eventually to become the young branch of the HJ; for boys from 10 to 14 years old. The Sig-rune first became associated with the DJ on November 9th 1929, the sixth anniversary of the failed Beer Hall Putsch, when the Gauleiter of Vienna presented them with their first official flag, consisting of a black field with a central, silver Sig-rune. The Sig-rune was afterward adopted as the official emblem of the DJ. An approximately 40cm x 42cm, double sided, multi-piece linen construction banner. Each side has a large, white Sig-rune stitched to its black background field. Twisted white fringe runs along both sides and the bottom of the banner. One of the original four ties strings remains. Excellent condition but used example (almost mint) Brought home by a U.S. Veteran. One of the classic flags from the third Reich in used condition. Typical light age toning.
