Judging colors from a black and white photo is difficult, but it appears the flag-bearer bandolier is Kreis level? There was a mixture of old insignia and new insignia on all the participants of this...

Excellent idea. The Schlageter memorial cross looks identical to the one on the plaque. So it seems more likely it is connected to a...

Br. James, I wish there had been a wind blowing during the parade and inside the auditorium so the full features of the flag would have been photographed. But the Org Book does state the OGF did...

Br. James, I think the Org Buch stated the Old Guard flag was to be taken out for RL Ley's Alte Garde Treffen in the various Gaues.

I guess I am confused as to what the second pattern party flag...
