Nazi Anti-Flag Desecration Law

Auto-curated

The Nazi Anti-Flag Desecration Law was not a Nazi law, but an amendment to the Second Reich Strafgesetzbuch signed into law as a Notverordnung in the Weimarer Republik on 19 December 1932 by Reichspräsident Paul von Hindenburg and the cabinet of Reichskanzler Kurt von Schleicher, making it illegal to desecrate the flag by "insulting or maliciously and with intent belittling" the Reich, the Länder, their constitution, colors, or flags, or the Wehrmacht.
