INFORMATION ON THE HITLER STANDARD

PERSONAL STANDARD FOR ADOLF HITLER AS LEADER AND CHANCELLOR OF THE GERMAN NATION AND LATER AS THE SUPREME COMMANDER OF THE ARMED FORCES

Adolf Hitler became Chancellor of the German Reich on January 30, 1933. On August 2, 1934 on the death of President Paul von Hinderburg, Hitler abolished the title of ‘President’ and instituted the title of ‘Fuhrer’ (Leader) which could only be used when referring to him personally. On August 19, 1934 he became known as Fuhrer (Leader) and Reichskanler (Reich Chancellor) as well as Oberster Belehlshaber der Deutschen Wahrmacht (Supreme Commander of the German Armed Forces).

On February 4, 1938 Hitler abolished the office of War Minister and took the responsibility of the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces.

STANDARTE DES REICHSPRASIDENTEN AND FUHUERSTANDARTE

General Feldmarschell von Hindenburg as the Reichsprasidenten was afforded a personal standard as a mark of his office. This standard ceased to be used on the death of von Hindenburg and when Hitler became the Furher and Reichdkanzler he instituted a new standard to mark his office. Referred to as the ‘Furherstandarte’ its correct title was ‘ Standarte des Furher und Reichdkanzlers’

When Hitler assumed the position of Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces the correct title for the ‘Furherstandarte’ was altered to ‘Standarte des Furhers und Obersten Befehlshabers der Wehrmacht’. However no changes were made to the actual standard.

The standard was made in a variety of regulation sizes. The smallest was 30cm x 30cm for use on a motor vehicle, other sizes were 60cm x 60cm, 75cm x 75cm, 100cm x 100cm and 200cm x 200cm. Smaller sizes were made of silk with hand worked color silks and gold-wire embroidery, these were one or two sided depending on use. Larger sizes were usually printed in color fast dyes on bunting, these were normally made in the pillow case style with the same design on both sides. See examples in pictures. However for naval use these were printed on a single piece of bunting and the reverse side was a mirror image of the obverse.

The Hitler Personal Marker Standard was 75cm x 75cm, none are known to exist today so our only reference is photographs. From the only black and white photograph I have found of the marker standard ( see picture) it appears to be a printed version. We are producing it as a printed standard in a pillow case style. The flag pole used for the marker standard was a converted German WW1 Cavalry Lance with a cross bar at the top to support the standard in a hanging position. The original lance color was a dark gun metal color, almost black. The convert one for the standard was painted white with the exception of the ferrule and lance blade which were left there original polished metal color and the rubber hand grip which was black. This hand carried marker standard was used only when Hitler was present to inform people and troops he was there.


Here is the only picture I have found of the marker standard in use.
