BACKGROUND: Development of the SA, Sturmabteilung, (Storm Detachment), may be traced back to August 1921 when the first unit was formed to protect NSDAP leaders at party meetings and rallies and to act as opposition to rival political parties. Between its inception and Hitlerís ascension to power in January 1933 the SA had been uniformed, banned, reformed and reorganized. Prior to Hitlerís gaining of power the SA numbered about 300,000 personnel but by December 1933 it had reached a peak of roughly 4,500,000 personnel. The SA utilized vehicle service pennants in a similar was as the Armed Forces. These pennants were flown from the right front fender of the vehicle when an Officer was uniformed and in the vehicle.

Pennant features a red cotton base field with a central white circular disc with machine woven stylized "SA" runes in black rayon and black circular border trim to both sides.
