The VgdB or ‘Vereinigung der gegenseitigen Bauernhilfe’ (Association for Mutual Farmers’ Assistance). It is presented on this Flaggenkunde page (in German): Founded in 1946 during the land reform and joined to the agrarian production cooperatives in 1950, the VdgB was to become an important mass organization uniting agrarian workers and gardeners. A member of the National Front, it was represented in parliament till 1963. Its influence diminished due to the growing success of the DBD, the agrarian party, The VdgB emblem is described as a green hexagon widened towards the top, enclosing yellow initials and having a border bearing yellow ears of wheat. The flag was green bearing said emblem within a narrow yellow border.
See the last emblem on this page. A German eBay offer of such a flag (presented as “unknown”) was item no. 230132522150 (end 27 May 2007, put up by "wolfgang260666”).
