BACKGROUND: The DJ, "Deutsche Jungvolk" (German Youth), originated in Vienna, Austria in 1929, and was eventually to become the young branch of the HJ; for boys from 10 to 14 years old. The Sig-rune first became associated with the DJ on November 9th 1929, the sixth anniversary of the failed Beer Hall Putsch, when the Gauleiter of Vienna presented them with their first official flag, consisting of a black field with a central, silver Sig-rune. The Sig-rune was afterward adopted as the official emblem of the DJ.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: An approximately 40cm x 40cm, double sided, multi-piece cotton construction banner, with four tie strings along its upper edge for affixing it to a trumpet. Each side has a large, white Sig-rune stitched to its black background field. A 60mm twisted white fringe runs along both sides and the bottom of the banner. Bottom right quadrant, in white chain stitch is "NJ". The brass trumpet, has a 14cm diameter bell and measures approximately 79cm in its entire length. There are no visible markings. Well worn and used example.
