Third Reich is the DEUTSCHLAND ERWACHE Standard

***PLEASE NOTE WE WILL UPLOAD THE ENTIRE CATALOG SHORTLY AFTER THANKSGIVING. PLEASE CHECK BACK THEN FOR OUR COMPLETE CATALOG! THANK YOU!*** 8765 Perhaps the most symbolic item of Adolf Hitler’s Third-Reich is the “DEUTSCHLAND ERWACHE” Standard. Modeled after the Standards carried by the Roman Legions, Hitler ordered that each area in Germany would be represented by the “DEUTSCHLAND ERWACHE” Standard. The visual impact of the N.S.D.A.P. rallies and parades, being lead by the D.E. Standard bearers created a psychological effect on the participants and viewers alike. Personally, selected by Hitler, the D.E. Standard consisted of a 15 1/2″ diameter white circle with a silver tape border, holding a 10 1/8″ x 10 5/8″ black swastika with a silver tape inner border. Embroidered 1 3/8″ silver lettering “DEUSCHLAND ERWACHE” was placed above and below the center – all on a 23 1/2″ x 26″ red field. The reverse holds the same design of the large swastika, but with the lettering “NAT. SOZ. DEUTSCHE ARBEITER PARTEI”, at the top, and “STURMABTEILUNG” below the swastika. A black/white/red fringe borders three sides. The sleeve, at the top is damaged and worn. The back side only has a 2 1/2″ section of the red leather that once protected the flag from wear against the pole. Overall both sides show wear and have several separations on the red silk field. The white circle has small separations, pulls and is darkened from age and the red dye from the field that was apparently wet at one time. Overall size 25″ x 29″. Although soiled and damaged, this standard remains a rare and desirable item. With a single twisted black/white/red cord and tassel. (in good condition). (From the Donald G. Brownlow Collection).
