The War Minister's flag was a square flag with a narrow black outer border and a wide white inner border, and the center field being basically the same as the Defence Minister's Flag 1933-1935 (which it replaced) — a bordered Iron Cross on a black-white-red tricolor, though somewhat smaller than it. At each corner of the large white border is a black Nazi National Eagle. Around the white field was a black-white-black border. Davis 1975 [dav75] has a black and white version. This flag was used only from 23 June to 5 October 1935 and was then replaced by the flag of the War Minister and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces.
Norman Martin, January 1998
