SA Sturmfahne for SA Standarte 413, SA Group Südwest, headquartered in Stuttgart/Bad Cannstadt. Below the double sided standard's yellow-orange unit patches are 5 Tradition unit patches, correctly embroidered in silver on red flag fabric. These are units that were absorbed into Standarte 413 due to the many re-organizations of the SA. The units were '11R/413, 36/R119, 5/L119, 5/R119, and 34/119' (R= Reserve, L= Lehr, and the former units were all located in Stuttgart. Multi-piece swastika on sewn white disc. The original rings and ring loops are no longer attached. This is often the case as GIs would cut or tear the cloth loops in order to remove the flag from its pole.
SA Sturmfahnen are very difficult to find, and to find an example with even 1 tradition patch is rare. An example like this, with 5 tradition patches, is almost impossible to find on the market. The flag shows normal age and use.
