0055 | Photo | 369. (kroatische) Infanterie-Division



The Poglavnik presents the 369th Grenadier Regiment with a flag. Colonel Kurt Fischer, commander of the 369th Regiment, 369th (Croatian) Infantry Division, posing with the new regimental flag on a field in front of the barracks in Mostar. The Poglavnik presented the regiment with the flag in memory of the Croatian Legion (369th Reinforced Croatian Infantry Regiment), which fought on the Eastern Front (as part of the German 100th Jäger Division) and was destroyed at Stalingrad. (It was this unit from which the 369th Division and its first regiment inherited their number.) On the obverse of the flag, there is the inscription "By the grace of God and a stroke of luck" (an old Serbian and Croatian motto, which the Croats incorrectly attributed to their Ban Jelačić) with the Croatian coat of arms and the regimental number over the Croatian tricolour, and on the (white) reverse, there is the inscription "For the Poglavnik and the homeland" with the monogram "AP" (Ante Pavelić).

Poglavnik poklanja zastavu 369. grenadirskom puku. Pukovnik Kurt Fišer, komandant 369. puka 369. (hrvatske) pešadijske divizije, pozira sa novom pukovskom zastavom na placu ispred kasarne u Mostaru. Poglavnik je zastavu poklonio puku u znak sećanja na Hrvatsku legiju (369. ojačani hrvatski pešadijski puk), koja se borila na Istočnom frontu (u sastavu nemačke 100. lovačke divizije) i bila uništena kod Staljingrada. (Upravo su od ove jedinice 369. divizija i njen prvi puk nasledili svoj broj.) Na licu zastave nalazi se natpis "Što Bog da i sreća junačka" (staro srpsko i hrvatsko geslo, koje su Hrvati pogrešno pripisali svom banu Jelačiću) sa grbom Hrvatske i brojem puka preko hrvatske trobojke, a na (belom) naličju stoji natpis "Za poglavnika i za dom" sa monogramom "AP" (Ante Pavelić).
