The Jewish Community Board of Frankfurt-am-Main was notified today by the secret police that “it does not desire Jews and Jewish organizations to display the Reichsbanner.”

The Jewish Community Board was, however, permitted to fly the city colors. This is the first order ever issued in Germany prohibiting Jews and Jewish institutions from flying the national colors of the country.
