RARE/HISTORIC SOCIETY FOR GERMAN-SOVIET FRIENDSHIP FLAG
Originally founded as Society for the Studies of Soviet Culture to accustom Germans with the rather unfamiliar Russian culture, the DSF later became a pure propaganda tool. As an interesting turn of events, with the start of reforms in the Soviet Union, membership increased as a sign of support for Gorbatchev's Perestroika policy. The Society's flag was white with the DSF symbol in the center. The symbol showed the Soviet and German Democratic Republic flags flying next to each other, surrounded by the words FÃœR DEUTSCH-SOWJETISCHE FREUNDSCHAFT.
The flag is a large 47 x 76 inches.
