Default Bannfahne HJ DJ Hitlerjugend

Super rare Hitler youth Bannfahne from the area of Hamburg Germany.
This flag is huge approx 55 inches X 70 inches . The number 188 within the scroll is designated for the area of Hamburg Germany . There are 13 HJ Bannfahne and 9 DJ Bannfahne known to have survived WW2 . Total manfactured if you take in consideration the early pattern scrolls with the later pattern scrolls , the total Bannfahns made would be about 2,580 , with a total of 22 combined HJ and DJ Bannfahnes known in existence , this makes the Bannfahne one of the rarist of all the different styles of Third Reich flags to find ... yet one of the most striking in design . ( Of note , to keep the bottom section from fraying or tearing more than it already has , I will be overlapping the frayed/torn section with a piece of original salvaged red fabric section cut from a regular moth eaten banner and delicately sewing over it with original thread . This measure should preserve it from future damage ) .

A very nice flag. Congratulations !!!
Thanks for posting some detailed
views of the embroidery. As from
Hamburg, maybe made by Fahnen
Fleck?

... I note that the WW2 period HJ Bann
Fahne was listed as "preise auf Anfrage".
Seems their price was high even back then.

Just curios OFW , If there are approx 25 DE standards known in existence , would then the Bannfahnes of the Hitlerjugend be the rarest of all the 3rd Reich regimental level banners ? If you combine the known 13 HJ Bannfahne and the 9 DJ Jungbannfahne that are documented , then there are only 22 in total .

JC:
Indeed rare based just on their low WW2 survival numbers.
Same can be said for SA/SS DE banners, Heer unit flags, &
SS Sturmbannfahnen, & Luft fahnen, & rarest being IMO KM
Truppenfahnen as none are known to have survived WW2.
