Default Smoke Flare Cartridges?

Hi guys
I don't collect German stuff but came across these today. I believe they are smoke flare cartridges but I can't find any information about them.
I've tried googling the name on them, translating it and searching the forums but no luck.
Can anyone help me out with some information please?

War Flares

Hi,
As you might expect there are all German WW2 flares.

The purple one is Smoke bundle cartridge violet
Day signal for Wehrmacht to warn of enemy tank attack

The Red six dot is Star cluster red with red pre-signal
Tactical signal for the Wehrmacht.

The White six dot is Star cluster white with white pre-signal
Tactical signal for the Wehrmacht.
All know examples of the White flar4e was produced in 1941

Hope this helps

Russell

Thanks guys! For some reason I couldn't anything to show up when googling rauchbundelpatrone.
The shorter stouter flare casings seem to be much more adundant. Glad to know I was right for once though lol

I have a live EinzelStern Rot (38) round. Are they more valuable?
