German Imperial Flag (Reich War Flag or Reichskriegsflagge) was the official name of the German flag of war from 1867 to 1945. The design shown here was in use from 1903 – 1918, and was flown throughout World War I. It has the Black Iron Cross, and in the center a white circle with the Prussian Eagle (this eagle can also be seen on the Kingdom of Prussia Flag). This flag was also used in protest against the German government (Weimar Republic) by right wing groups in the 1920’s and 1930’s, including some use by Nazi groups. The display of this flag for that purpose continues to present day.
