The flags of the Wehrmacht were initially the old tradition flags of the Imperial Army, which had also been the flags of the Reichswehr. New Wehrmacht flags were introduced on March 16, 1936. All individual colours of units were replaced by the Reich War Flag on August 28, 1944.

Flags and pennants were not only used for individual units, but also to identify high-ranking officers or command posts. Staff flags for commanding officers of units usually showed numbers and (Latin) letters, at least in times of peace, to help identify units more accurately.

There are also National Insignia Pennants (Hoheitszeichen) for officers that were used exclusively on motor vehicles.

The standard of the Führer Escort Battalion was carried by the battalion responsible for protecting the Führer Headquarters.

The obverse shows the general army unit flag design, but the colour is bright red, even though the unit’s branch colour is white.
The reverse shows the design of the Führer standard, a bright red flag with a white center disc, surrounded by a wreath of oak leaves, with a black swastika inside. Around the wreath are four eagles, two of the army pattern, and two of the national emblem pattern.
