Nationalsozialistisches Kraftfahrkorps (NSKK) was the paramilitary Nazi motor corps. It was created by the merger of the Nationalsozialistischen Automobil Korps (NSAK) and the Motor-SA (MSA).

Like the SA Cavalry Regiment Standard, but with "Sturmabteilung" slightly higher and the diamond-shaped NSKK insignia below it. Rectangle [on the canton] is brown [not black as in the image].

I have a Nazi flag from World War Two which I do not know what it is. It is a small pennant with a red cross running vertically and horizontally in red with a black outline surrounding the cross. Furthermore there is
some sort of eagle emblem sown on it inside of a circle. The eagle's feet are standing on top of a swastika which is embroidered inside of another circle. The circle it is in is red on the edges of the circle. The eagle logo is black and on it chest it has 4 letters across it. The four letters are these D.D.A.C. do you know what they mean? The circle that contains the eagle that is standing on a swastika that is circled in red is in the middled of the cross where the vertical and horizontal line meet.

The description sounds like the pennant used by the DDAC (Der Deutsche Automobil-Club e.V.). It was founded in 1933 to get control over all the various national car associations that existed in Germany at that time.

The flags used by the MSKK Motorboot (Kraftboot) sections were square and red with the NSKK eagle in a white circle in the center and a cornflower-blue square in the upper left corner where a golden anchor is displayed, leaning from the top left to bottom right corner of that square.
- The flags of the standarten had a broad black border and below the circle was written the unit designation, for example "Kb 1".
- The staffeln flags had a narrow black border with for example "II/Kb 1" written below the circle.
- The Sturm flags had no border with for example "4/Kb 1" written below the circle.
