Introduction: Free German Workers' Party
freiheitliche deutsche arbeiterpartei, FAP

Since 1995, the Free German Workers' Party (and therefore their flag) have been banned.
Marcus Schmöger, 11 January 2004

The Free German Workers Party, also known as the Liberal German Workers Party, was a small neo-Nazi political party founded and headquartered in Bonn, Germany. It was active between 1979 and 1995. Its first significant leader was Michael Kühnen who ran the party between 1981-1989 until Friedhelm Buss replaced him. It was never a large or effective group and its membership numbered approximately 500 or less. It is no longer active, although some of its former membership have moved on to the NPD and other local far-right groups.

Vertical FAB Banner

The Free German Workers' Party also used vertical banners reminiscent of those used by the Third Reich. This photo taken in the town of Fulda on 1993-08-14. Here, the disc with logo is placed between the inscription "Niedersachsen" at the top and "Göttingen" at the bottom, which denote the place of origin. The side and bottom edges of the flag also have fringes in black, white and red.

Free German Workers' Party Variant

This variant design was actively displayed by FAP members at demonstrations centering around the commemoration of Rudolf Hess' death in the early 1990s. It contnued to be used until the group's disbanding in 1995.
Pete Loeser, 2 December 2016

Some more about this FAP flag variant where the party logo is not placed directly on the red field, but on a white disc instead. The size of disc varied somewhat, as well as the relative size of disc and logo, but was usually as shown in the image presented herein. A black fimbriation around the disc was frequently added as well, but not always: while it is usually clearly recognizable, it is sometimes clearly absent, and there are also cases when it might be visible, but not clearly enough to tell whether it is just an optical illusion due to lesser transparency of the stitches. Flags displaying all or some of these variations were often used together, so those seem not to have been considered essential regarding the flag design and are not presented here.
