OFW, I doubt they would have been awarded as the onset of war precluded the events where these could be presented. Couple that with the very short existence of these SS-TV Standarten and it is makes it extremely unlikely.
There may be documents or images that could confirm this but the rather toxic atmosphere that seems to cloud these threads makes it unlikely that any serious researcher would be bothered.

derek:
Thanks for your reply to my question. I suspect
that the SS followed the Army wartime policy of
presenting no new unit flags until after victory.
This included a unit retaining their original 1936-
1939 branch color, even if re-designated to some
other branch - horse cavalry changed into tanks
would not have their yellow swallowtail reissued
in panzer pink, during the war. Mollo in his SS book
series said new wartime raised SS units swore
their soldier oaths on existing General SS flags,
although I am unaware of his source for this info.

OFW
(below) LAH did have wartime unit flag changes.

(below-2) LAH wartime change included their battalion flags too.
