  • Outstanding Colossal WWII German State Service Flag Captured From Schloss Klessheim By A U.S. Captain Certified

    SOLD Outstanding WWII German State Service  Flag Captured From Schloss Klessheim By A U.S. Captain Certified. With a deep understanding of pageantry and symbolism, and its propaganda and psychological effectiveness, the NSDAP went to great lengths to reinforce their political party to the general populace of Germany, with repetitive slogans and the omnipresent use of the swastika. Swastikas adorned flags, banners and pennants and were utilized at every possible opportunity. Originally the State Service Flag was introduced in the Weimar era in 1921 and consisted of three horizontal bars in black, white and red with smaller horizontal bars of black, red and yellow inset in the canton with a black national eagle positioned slightly off-center. On March 13TH 1933 the first Third Reich era State Service Flag was introduced and was designated, "Dienstflagge der Reichsbehörden zur See", (Service Flag of the National Authorities at Sea), but the original designation was altered to, "Reichsdienstflagge", (State Service Flag), on June 6TH 1933. The 1933 pattern flag followed the basic design of its predecessor with three horizontal bars in black, white and red with a black national eagle positioned in the center. On October 31ST 1935 a second pattern State Service Flag was introduced and was first flown on November 7TH 1935. Regulations dictated that the State Service Flag was to be utilized by all public administrative government authorities and was to be flown on their buildings, on inland waterways and the high seas vessels and service vehicles as required.  A 1935 pattern, double sided, printed, cotton/linen construction flag. The flag features a red base field white with a white, central, circular field with a black and white bordered, black static swastika to the center and a black bordered and accented, white NSDAP political style national eagle in the canton. The hoist edge has a small, dual-ply, reinforcement panel to each corner. The hoist edge is trimmed in white, tunnel looped, cotton/rayon blend bunting (part is slightly torn when it was torn down from it's pole) not a big deal it's just trim (see photo).  The flag is the biggest size made and we could not properly spread it out is was so large! Bigger than any of our rooms! . There are a few small holes and the expected light stains from use, but overall very nice but used condition.Nicely maker marked with tag (photo is blurry sorry) . Nice clean excellent  example with no major  condition issues. Now here is the interesting part this flag was taken by a U.S Captain of the 144th Field Artillery who was attached to the 45th Division. In May of 1945 he was among those who captured the Schloss Klessheim a castle in Austria where the Nazi's moved items from Berlin and Munich as the Third Reich collapsed. This flag was said to flying at the time of capture! This is the correct style flag for Schloss Klessheim. This Captain took lots of "loot" from the castle including this unused flag. Please see letter he wrote on Hitler stationery (not included) and photo of him. Name on the envelope also pictured but not included. We have several items from him and his "hoard of loot".  100% Guaranteed to be authentic Brought home by a solider as a trophy of war.
