Default Small sun wheel swastika banner

I've had this banner for over twenty years now. It is one sided and very well made. I'm not sure about the name stamp but the stitching looks good to me. On the negative side the white material has a odd weave and it glows under a black light. What do y'all think? Good or bad? Thanks, Dale

Its trying to be a Danish Schalburg flag, I don't know if it is good or not but I would not give it much of a chance JMHO. Maybe OFW will chime in.
Regards,

Thanks Michael. I too have doubts about the flag but I'm also unsure if "its trying to be a Danish Schalburg flag". The Germans used the sun wheel quite often and it was the symbol of the Thule society which was a breeding grown for many early Nazis.

Hello MH:
Nice Danish Schalburg period flag photo.
As for the banner in question, I've never
seen an Otto Baier Fahnenfabrilk Straubing
maker stamped banner before, and I can't
find any online mention of such a WW2 firm.
As such the swaz banner is a fake IMO.

Can't find concern with this name having gotten an RZM permission.
To make such flag a permission was needed.

Wilhelm, thanks for your response and I also read your reply about the youth banner in the Hj forum. Is it not possible that my banner was produced before the RZM?
