Nazis aren't very happy that I keep posting the *original* medieval European bearer of this standard, Saint Maurice (right):

THIS is the degree to which these vile, ignorant hatemongers are willing to misappropriate or lie about history.

I have HUNDREDS of images of the Black Saint Maurice, dozens in which he bears the standard of the Holy Roman Empire

Not one of you has to believe a single word I say about this, either. Go look for yourself. Ask your librarian. Go to a museum.

They're carrying around the shield of Saint Maurice, a Black ROMAN Saint who was martyred for refusing to kill.

These Nazis are ignorant liars telling themselves a fantasy story about how History belongs only to people who look like them.

They're the ones who are pathetic and desperate, trying to find an identity based solely on what it *isn't*.

Are you sure the image on the left isn't meant to be a Viking raven (also beloved of the far-right) rather than a German eagle?

So Saint Maurice's standard became part of German coat of arms, then Nazis stole it? Is that right?
