German Youth Organization / Deutsche Jungvolk Organisation

A black flag with a white Sieg-rune (the runic letter 'S'). Ratio 4:5 or 10:11. In use until 1934. Deutsche Jungvolk was the organization for boys between 10 and 14 years old.
Norman Martin, Feb 1998

I have inherited a 4x4 ft WWII flag from a relative who served in France and Germany. The flag has German markings - the white SS on black look except it only has one S. the S is exactly like the traditional SS.

It's a flag of the Deutsches Jungvolk (German Youth). A subdivision of the Hitler Youth for boys aged 10 to 14.

Penant / Wimpel

On 6 Jan 2000 Marcus Wendel wrote: Photos of some Third Reich flags I've found on-line: A fahnleinwimpel of Deutsche Jungvolk. Note: I haven't asked permission for these images and they should only to be used as reference when creating new flag-images.

Now, more than 5 years later, I'm posting a GIF of this flag. It's a dark blue flag with a dark blue wimpel, charged with a red S (shaped like the lightning-S'es of the SS). I took one liberty with it, though: the photo shows the reverse of the flag, and to make the obverse I, naturally, mirrored the source. However, mirroring the whole flag would render the S illegible, so I made the educated guess that the obverse shows a legible S and excluded it from the mirroring.
