Original WWII German Nazi flag captured and signed by 31 soldiers of the 354 Infantry Regiment 89th Division. The men marked the hoist ‘P I T CO.L 354 INF. 89th Division’, below they wrote ‘Looted in Zwickau, Germany April, 1945’ with a drawing of the division’s shoulder sleeve insignia. 31 soldiers added their names and hometowns. A smaller flag in size 21.5 x 15 in., but in perfect condition, a two-piece construction. The 89th Division captured Zwickau (near Dresden) by 17 April, 1945 and the unit ceased forward momentum for the last few weeks of the war, conducted patrols to clear pockets of resistance that remained in the region. Very good
