I'm going through the photos my father took during WWII. This one was taken on a sight seeing tour just after VE Day. I know these guys visited several Nazi "monuments", Eagles Lair, Goering's art collection and the site of the 1936 Olympic stadium where Hitler held mass rallies in the Divisional Staff Duty B-17G behind them and brought back this flag. I'd like to know if this style flag is Luftwaffe, HQ, a unit flag or just a common, ordinary, every day Nazi flag. I think the iron cross is distinctive from standard flags.
