Presentation of the VNV

The Vlaamsch Nationaal Verbond (VNV) was founded in 1933-34. The party collaborated with the Germans during the Second World War and was dissolved in 1944.

Jarig Bakker, 13 June 1999


Flag of the VNV

The flag of the VNV was orange with a white disc bordered blue and charged with a blue voided triangle.
David Littlejohn (Foreign Legions of the Third Reich, Vol. 2: Belgium, Great Britain, Holland, Italy and Spain [ltj81]) shows the flag with a white disc bordered black and charged with a black voided triangle.

Karim Van Overmeire & , 30 December 2015

A red/black/white version of the flag was also widely used. This one was based directly on the swastika flag of Nazi Germany, using the exact same colors.

Joris Huizer, 20 July 2010


Symbol of the VNV

Blue, white and orange are the colours of the (united) Netherlands. The blue triangle is the Δ (delta) letter, the Netherlands being the delta of three major European rivers: Rhine, Meuse and Scheldt.
The symbol is said to have been designed by Herman van Ooteghem, who meant to show the three rivers mentioned above. Reimond Tollenaere, another VNV mugwump and seated opposite Herman van Ooteghem when he drew the triangle (point downwards) recognized the Greek letter Δ and proposed a triangle with point upwards.

Flag of the NSJV - Image by Marc Pasquin, 30 December 2015

David Littlejohn (Foreign Legions of the Third Reich, Vol. 2: Belgium, Great Britain, Holland, Italy and Spain [ltj81]) shows the flag of the youth section of the VNV as orange with a stormy petrel, a bird that prominently features in their uniform and was apparently inherited from Jong Dinaso, the youth wing of Verdinaso.

Dietsche Militie / Zwarte Brigade (DM/ZB)

[Flag]         [Flag]         [Flag]

Flag of the DM/ZB units, from left to write, Brabant, Flanders, and Limburg - Images by Marc Pasquin, 30 December 2015

The DM/ZB was the VNV equivalent to the Nazi stormtroopers. David Littlejohn (Foreign Legions of the Third Reich, Vol. 2: Belgium, Great Britain, Holland, Italy and Spain [ltj81]) shows the DM/ZB unit flags with the same basic design: a lion with a wolf-trap rune superimposed on it, charged with the regimental number (represented on the above images by question mark). The lion was yellow on a black field in Brabant, black on a yellow field in Flanders, and red on a white field in Limburg.
