Unknown emblem

Post by tippette » 13 Nov 2021 20:59

Good evening, the attached picture is extracted from the movie made by Eva Braun and tagged like Reel 1 of 8.
It has been taken at Aschauer Weiher. In the backgrounf you can see a flag that seems to be a nazi flag but has a different emblem in the center.
Do you know this flag?
Thank you

The flag could have could have been from a christian youth organization, after the Nazi takeover in 1933.

Comparable flags and banners can be found many times, with a corresponding Internet search.
At first sight, I thought about a christian Boy Scout ("Pfadfinder") organization, but I would rule that out by now.

Please cite the source for the films, that would certainly be helpful...

Scouts (Pfadfinder) would rather have lilie (Fleur-De-Lis) as a symbol.

Maybe it's a DAF cogwheel.

That was my first sight.

Hello,
As far as I could't see it seems to be a Deutsches ArbeitsFront flag maybe?

Very interesting question,

not even I as a German was aware of this former organization. Given the organizations at that time, this excess of organizations at that time is still poorly manageable for a layman.
Thank you for all the tips, I have learned a lot...
