Command flag, Admiral of the Fleet, Imperial Germany (before 1919)
Command flag, Admiral of the Fleet, Imperial Germany (before 1919). The last standard used by Kaiser Wilhelm II (1859-1942) when visiting the High Seas Fleet during the First World War. The flag is made of wool bunting with a linen hoist. It is machine and hand sewn, painted and gilt. The black cross is applied with hand stitching and the edge of the white border is painted round it. The design is painted on both sides and a rope is attached to hoist the flag. On the hoist: 'Gros Admiral Fl Boot' - this is a boat flag. Also stencilled onto the hoist is the initial 'W' with a crown above. There are hand sewn repairs to the flag.
Design: A white field with a black iron cross superimposed on crossed admiral's batons with gold imperial crown in the centre.
