Well, their were formed in files and made the swear to loyalty to Hitler.

After that Hitler passed with the Blood Flag and after greets the man who had the other flag joined both flags.

In "Triumph of the Will" you can see the event.


I can´t remember the name of the official man who had the Blutfahne... Jakob what?

The name of the man who had the Blutfahne was Jakob Grimminger, I think. Hope that helps Helly Angel!
