Flag_of_the_NSDAP_(1920–1945).svgThis is a 50 x 75 Deutsches Jungvolk flag manufactured by Otto Baier of Straubing. The size of this flag concerns me a little although I have found another example by this manufacturer on the tubes. I believe this to be an old fake as I just do not like the printing.

Flag_of_the_NSDAP_(1920–1945).svgThe Deutsches Jungvolk was a feeder organization for the Hitler Youth. It catered to young boys aged between 10 and 14. This is a trumpet banner for this organization. In this case it is a smaller, untasselled variety.

Flag_of_the_NSDAP_(1920–1945).svgThe Deutsches Jungvolk was the branch of the HJ dealing with young children. Originally these children wore SA belt buckles, just small ones. Then from 1933 until 1936 they used this buckle, when it was discontinued and the stock HJ belt buckle was used. This example is stamped steel with a bronze sigrune attached.

Flag_of_the_NSDAP_(1920–1945).svgThis is the German Deutsches Jungvolk Proficiency badge, marked M1/120 for Wilhelm Deumer of Lüdenscheid. It’s a silver-colored, die struck alloy award in the form of a “Sig” rune, roughly 21mm tall. To the center of the rune is a raised, mobile swastika, which is surrounded by the pseudo-runic script “Für Leistungen Im D.J.” (For Proficiency In-the German Young-people).
