League of Red Front Fighters / Roter Frontkämpferbund / RFB
There does not seem to have been any strict rules in regard to the Ortsgruppen flags of the Roter Frontkämpferbund (RFB), the communist paramilitary organisation in the Weimar Republic. I have seen several different variants and here are two examples (most are similar to one of these):
The Abteilungen seem to have used variant no. 2 but without any text. The vehicle flag was a red triangular banner with a red fist in a black circular field. The standard communist plain red banner was of course also used. Source: Roter Frontkämpferbund 1924-1929, published by Armeemuseum der DDR (Army Museum of the German Democratic Republic).
- Red banner with a centered yellow fist. Ortsgruppe (City) name below in yellow. 'RFB' in yellow above. Variants include 'Rot Front', 'R.F.B.', 'Roter Frontkämpfer Bund' or 'R.F.B. Ortsgruppe'.
- Red banner with a red fist in a black circurlar field with a black ring around it. Text as above but in black.
