ETHNIC-EUROPEAN EXCLUSIVE Hundreds of millions of people will have seen the flag-touching ceremonial at Third Reich and Adolf Hitler rallies and commemorative events, without their being aware of the significance of the sacramental ritual.
The Blood Flag always had a place of honour at rallies and ceremonies across the 1930s. When not being carried in public the escutcheon was always stored on public display at the national offices of the National Socialist German Workers Party (NSDAP) in Munich, the Brown House.
One of the most enduring mysteries of the Third Reich epic is the enigmatic riddle that surrounds the fate of the Blood Flag after late 1944/early 1945.
All historical sources agree that in late 1944 the Blutfahne was removed from the NSDAP headquarters, the Brown House in Munich to a safer place, then according to some sources, was moved again in the early Spring of 1945.
After the collapse of the Third Reich in May 1945 this most important symbol of German National Socialism disappeared.
More than anything else, the Blood Flag represented the talisman of the NSDAP. For this reason, The Allied Occupation forces were desperately keen to track what has been described as the most symbolic flag in history. Some have compared it to the Holy Shroud (of Jesus Christ). The flag’s usual Standard-bearer Jakob Grimminger was interrogated several times by American military intelligence personnel about the location of the Blood Flag.
An element of post-1945 mythology grew up around the hiding place of this iconic National Socialist banner. One American writer speculated that it was hidden away in South America, smuggled out by U-Boat with other meaningful treasures of the NSDAP and locked away in a bank vault in Santiago, Chile. Such reports are dismissed as fanciful. The transport of such artefacts at what was a perilous time, especially for transport, would present a far greater danger than hiding it in a safe European crypt.
A specialist was once told by a former Waffen-SS officer that the Blutfahne was certainly not in South America, but was safe in a secret place either in Germany or Austria, but he refused to say anything more about it. A former member of the Hitler Youth told the author that he had been told by an ‘Alter Kampfer’ (Old Fighter) that the Blutfahne was safe in Europe and its location was known only to a trusted few and their descendants.
In the post-war years, a number of wealthy private collectors of Third Reich memorabilia have tried unsuccessfully to track the flag down, motivated by a combination of personal interest and financial considerations. There is no doubt that if the Blood Flag was to emerge onto the collector’s market it would fetch a huge price in the auction rooms. However, the Blood Flag has far more meaning to True Believers than a saleroom price tag.
There are also those elements who would seek out the Blood Flag to either spirit it away for permanent display in the museum at Yad Vashem in Israel or else seize it and publicly destroy it as a symbolic triumph over National Socialism.
One day perhaps, when sanity has been restored to European politics, the Blutfahne will be taken out of hiding and will return to Munich to be displayed with honour.
