FLAG – VETERAN’S ASSOCIATION

SKU: 25-51

$895.00

Many towns and cities had veteran’s association chapters for those who had served in the military. Today we are offering a fine example of a veteran’s association flag. In many cases these flags were an extension of the regimental flags under which they had marched. The flag measures 60″ x 58.” It is one-sided. It sports alternating tassels in white and black around its edges. At the top of the flag are the words “Krieger-Verein.” Below that is a magnificent Hohenzollern Eagle, which measures 30 1/2 x 30. Below the Eagle are the words “Kell, Gegründet 1871.” This was for a branch of the War Veteran’s Association for that city, which had been founded right after the Franco-Prussian War ended. Many such chapters were founded in the years following that war. From the German standpoint it was a much more satisfactory and happy time than 1918. Many associations were founded after WW I, but mostly in the early 1920’s after the postwar revolutionary period had passed. The flag is in very good condition. A couple of spots reveal some very light water staining, which is not detractive to the overall condition of the flag.
