BACKGROUND: The DRK, "Deutsches Rotes Kreuz" (German Red Cross), a voluntary civil assistance organization originally instituted in 1864, was officially acknowledged by the Geneva Convention in 1929. In December 1937 it gained status as a legally recognized organization by the NSDAP. As with other essential services in Third Reich Germany, it came under control of the Nazi Party in late 1938 under the auspices of the Ministry of the Interiorís Social Welfare Organization.

To both sides of the pennant are printed, against a white background, the DRK emblem of a black eagle with down-swept wings and a white, mobile swastika to its breast, clutching a red Balkan cross in its talons. White and gray twisted piping to the edges.  (Ex Philippe Gillain Collection)
