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



Poglavnik presents the 369th Grenadier Regiment with a flag. The commander of the 369th Regiment, 369th (Croatian) Infantry Division, Oberst Kurt Fischer, poses for a photograph with the regimental flag, on a field in front of the barracks in Mostar. The flag was a gift of Poglavnik Ante Pavelić, in memory of the Croatian Legion (369th Infantry Regiment), which fought on the Eastern Front as part of the German 100th Jäger Division and was destroyed at Stalingrad (it was also the unit from which the 369th Grenadier Regiment and its division inherited their number). On one side of the flag, there is the inscription "By the grace of God and heroic fortune" with the Croatian coat of arms and the regiment's number (over a Croatian tricolour), and on the other (in a blank field), there is the inscription "For the Poglavnik and the homeland" with the monogram "AP" (Ante Pavelić).

Poglavnik poklanja zastavu 369. grenadirskom puku. Komandant 369. puka 369. (hrvatske) pešadijske divizije, pukovnik Kurt Fišer, pozira za fotografiju sa pukovskom zastavom, na placu ispred kasarne u Mostaru. Zastava je poklon poglavnika Ante Pavelića, u znak sećanja na Hrvatsku legiju (369. pešadijski puk), koja se u sastavu nemačke 100. lovačke divizije borila na Istočnom frontu i bila uništena kod Staljingrada (upravo su od ove jedinice 369. grenadirski puk i njegova divizija nasledili svoj broj). Na zastavi se s jedne strane nalazi natpis "Što Bog da i sreća junačka" sa hrvatskim grbom i brojem puka (preko hrvatske trobojke), a sa druge je (u praznom polju) natpis "Za poglavnika i za dom" sa monogramom "AP" (Ante Pavelić).
