Is this a SS issue backpack?

Default Is this a SS issue backpack?

I have this backpack and was wondering if it is possibly SS issue. Below the marker stamping there appears to be the Langemarck runic symbol. I discovered that the division initially started in 1940 as the 6th SS Volunteer Sturmbrigade Langemarck.

By September 1941 the formation was the size of a reinforced infantry battalion and had five fully motorized companies. The unit was again re-designated, this time as SS Volunteer Legion Flandern.

Any thoughts if this may have been stamped by this SS unit?

This is just the emblem of the maker "F. Lüneschloss Solingen" ha nothing to do with the Langemark, eventhough the emblems look the same

As mentioned above; it is NOT an issue SS backpack but only a maker symbol and has nothing to be with any WSS unit at all.
