The SPD in its early days (1863-1933) used basically two types of flags:
After 1945 the SPD reverted to its traditional red flags, usually containing the initials of the party in different font types. Especially striking was a campaign rally in 1953 in Frankfurt, when 104 brand new flags with black-edged golden letters 'SPD' were marched into the hall. However, this was too much red for the common public fearing the communists. So the colour red, and especially the display of red flags decreased significantly since then.
