Presidential Flag 1953-1955

[President 1953-1955 (East Germany)] 3:5
by Jaume Ollé

This flag is very similar to the national state flag (adopted 1956) but contains the coat of arms of 1953 to 1955, which is a little different from the later one (the compass was reversed in 1955). The coat of arms was first published in the Siegelordnung der Deutschen Demokratischen Republik [Order on Seals of the DDR] on 28 May 1953.
