Yes I remember there being a curious flag used in the video. I'm not too sure what it represented though. If we find a picture of it somewhere, we can ask on the 3rd Reich part of this forum. I'm sure they'll be able to help.
Cheers

Hi

the flag you refer to is the official flag of the 'Deutsche Pfadfinder' organisation of South West Africa/Namibia. the flag is still in use at present by them. they still were the schutztruppe hat but are now in the process of changing that as it is frowned upon by the Namibian government as it is 'Colonial'.

Hi Schutztruppe,
Do you have any photos of the flag or the 'Deutsche Pfadfinder' that you could post up here?
Cheers
