The Arrow Cross

The Arrow Cross was the symbol of the fascist Arrow Cross Party (Nyilaskeresztes Párt) who came to power in (then german occupied) Hungary on October 15 1944 after Admiral Horthy tried to negotiate with the allies. Acording to Symbols.com, the Arrow cross has been used by Magyarian tribes about the time that they arrived in the region now called Hungary, around the year 1000 A.D. The most well known version of the flag was identical to the hakenkreuzfahne apart from the symbol in the center of the flag.

The "H" on the Hungarian Nazi (Arrow Cross) movement’s flag stands neither for "Hungaria" nor for "Horthy" (Horthy was an enemy of the Arrow Cross movement). It stands for "hungarizmus" (hungarism), the name of the ideology of the Arrow Cross movement.
Ivan Marinov, 10 Feb 2000

According to Forgotten Legions of the Third Reich [ltj85] by David Littlejohn, the "H "was added to Arrow Cross symbol «when the Arrow Cross became the Hungaria Movement in 1944», thus "H" being for "Hungaria".

This, disc with a black, "H"-less cross, is the flag of the Hungarian version of the Nazi party and was used in the time that Szálasi was in power (1943?-1945).
Ferenc Valoczy, 27 Sep 1999

This flag, but with a black fimbriation on the disc is suggested in the "Nazism Exposed" website as used by modern hungarian neonazi / skinheads.

The arrow cross in green, charged with a white capital "H", placed on a 90 deg. lozange, over all on a stripped background. This pattern was used as armband, and I have no evidence that it was used as a flag.
António Martins, 10 Aug 1999

I try to get some information about this: I found nothing! No picture, no poster, no text. It seems this flag never used.
