The swastika flag with a white-black-white bordered black Iron Cross in the upper hoist (Illustrated in Flaggenbuch 1939, pl. III) replaced the Naval Reserve Officers' Flag of 1933.
Norman Martin, January 1998
This Nazi Party Flag with an Iron Cross in the upper corner was used as the merchant flag by all German non-military ships after 1935 replacing the earlier tricolored design. This flag had the rather obvious title of Handelsflagge mit dem Eisenen Kreuz (Merchant Flag with the Iron Cross) and was flown as both a national and mercantile flag at sea.
