WWII German Luftwaffe Pilot School Flag -
This is a German
Pilot school flag. As issued during World War Two. This
type of flags would be flown at the grounds of the schools where
pilots received their training.
Like many other German flags the length of the flag is rather large. Of
cotton construction, standard
German red body color with a white stenciled eagle on the upper left corner. The center of the
flaf displays a large outlined swastika. The eagle has the wings fully spread. The head faces
to the left. It is clutching a wreath with a swastika in the center.
The edges of the flag are enforced with extra stiching lines. This measure helps prevent
fraying when in use. A white cotton rope is secured to one end of the flag. The seams are
reinforced with heavy duty white thread.
This is a close up view of the eagle. The head faces left. The wings are fully spread.
The feet are clutching a wreath with a swastika in the center.
A blue ink
stamp can be found near the corner of the flag. The design
of the stamp consists of a Luftwaffe eagle in flight. This is an earlier verison of the Luftwaffe
eagle known as the "Droop" tail due to the downward facing position of the tail.
The eagle is clutching a cut-out swastika. The letters "L" and "S" are placed to each side
of the swastika.
