Nazi flag the right one for this season?[edit]

I was wondering whether the swastika flag Flag of the German Reich (1935–1945).svg is the proper flag for German drivers, teams and races for 1935. The Flag of Germany page says that the Imperial flag Flag of Germany (1933-1935).svg was the Third Reich's national flag up until September 15th, 1935: "... they would eventually, on 15 September 1935, replace virtually all German governmental flags with designs based on the swastika flag..." Your thoughts? Lustigson 12:06, 5 July 2007 (UTC)

I believe both the Imperial flag and the Nazi flag were both official national flags of Germany from 1933-1935, but the Imperial flag was probably the preferred flag at events, because of its long historical use in the past which made it recognizable then, and that it was not a political flag.

I agree, it was an oversight on my part. I was thinking "1935 = Swastika flag" but in reality it didn't change until September, meaning during the majority of 1935 they would have used the Imperial flag. I've corrected it in the article. Readro 02:18, 25 July 2007 (UTC)
You/we could even consider adding the swastika flag for races after September 15th. Lustigson 10:34, 7 August 2007 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── As I understand it the Empire flag and the swastika flag with a central disc are two flags authorised for duel use for most of 1935, on 15th September 1935 the swastika flag with an off-centre disc became the national flag for Germany. I've edited the flags used to reflect this. --Thefrood (talk) 13:25, 17 May 2012 (UTC)
