BACKGROUND: Personal and Unit command pennants were an old German Army tradition which was continued and expanded during the Third Reich and included new designs and patterns for the fledgling Luftwaffe. Regulations concerning Luftwaffe Personal and Unit command pennants can be found dated as early as January 1935, before the formation of the Luftwaffe was officially announced. The Personal and Unit command pennants underwent numerous minor alterations at various times through-out the war.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Roughly 24cm x 38cm triangular, multi-piece, dual sided, cotton construction pennant featuring three horizontal bars in golden yellow, black, golden yellow respectively with a nicely detailed, machine embroidered, second pattern Luftwaffe eagle in silvery/grey threads to the center of each side. Hoist edge of pennant has come unstitched and is opened with some minor edge fraying. Pennant has no internal frame or protective covering. Pennant shows minimal age toning. This type of pennant was utilized by commanding Officer’s of Battalion sized units and was flown from the left front fender of the Officer’s official or personal vehicle, when the Officer was uniformed and in the vehicle. The design and coloration of the pennant indicates it was employed by a Panzer Reconnaissance Battalion commander.
