Unknown Pennant with GI Signatures

Recommended Posts

This is probably a long shot but does anyone know what this pennant is? It has about 8 soldier's signatures but I've no idea what it was used for or the nationality.

Looks like a paddler in a canoe. College pennant for sport?

Poiger is an unusual name.

 

It seams that it would be a location.

 

The pennant looks WW2 German made.

I agree. Does look German or at least European made. Since I didn't get any info with it I appreciate the inputs. Could very well have been a rowing club pennant that was snagged as a souvenir and signed by the troops. Thanks all!

You're welcome. Yes, so far I've not been able to figure out the flag/pennant or it's meaning yet either.

Poiger is a German name.

 

Yes, everything does point to German. They had a lot of different clubs based around athletic activities. I'm looking in that direction. An interesting souvenir to bring home.

Post VE Day individual units formed sports teams and clubs to occupy the idle Troops. I wonder if this is from one of those?
