0360 | Photo | 369. (kroatische) Infanterie-Division



The Poglavnik presents the 369th Grenadier Regiment with a flag. Minister Ivica Frković addresses the legionnaires of the 369th Regiment, "Devil's Division", after the presentation of the flag, in Mostar (Frković was also the division supervisor). Standing on the stage behind the minister (from left to right) are Lieutenant General Vilko Begić and Lieutenant General Fritz Neidholdt, division commander. Standing between the stage and the standard-bearer is Colonel Kurt Fischer, regimental commander. The regiment was given the flag "in honour of the Stalingrad heroes of the Croatian Legion", that is, of the 369th Reinforced Croatian Infantry Regiment, destroyed at Stalingrad. (Reminder: the "Devil's Division" and its first regiment inherited the number 369 from the destroyed legion.) On the reverse of the flag, there is the inscription "For the Poglavnik and the homeland" with Ante Pavelić's monogram, and on the obverse, there is the inscription "By the grace of God and a stroke of luck" (a motto incorrectly attributed to Ban Jelačić) with the Croatian coat of arms and the regimental number, over the Croatian tricolour. At the pole top, there is a devil with a trident. (Note: "By the grace of God and a stroke of luck" was actually an old Serbian and Croatian motto, which, inspired by heroic folk songs, Ban Jelačić cried out when crossing the Drava in 1848.)

Poglavnik poklanja zastavu 369. grenadirskom puku. Ministar Ivica Frković drži govor legionarima 369. puka "Vražje divizije" nakon predaje zastave, u Mostaru (Frković je bio i nadzornik divizije). Na bini iza ministra stoje (sleva nadesno) general-lajtnant Vilko Begić i general-lajtnant Fric Najdholt, komandant divizije. Između bine i stegonoše stoji pukovnik Kurt Fišer, komandant puka. Puk je zastavu dobio "u počast staljingradskih junaka Hrvatske legije", odnosno 369. ojačanog hrvatskog pešadijskog puka, uništenog kod Staljingrada. (Podsetnik: "Vražja divizija" i njen prvi puk nasledili su broj 369 od uništene legije.) Na naličju zastave nalazi se natpis "Za poglavnika i za dom" sa monogramom Ante Pavelića, a na licu stoji natpis "Što Bog da i sreća junačka" (geslo pogrešno pripisano banu Jelačiću) sa grbom Hrvatske i brojem puka, preko hrvatske trobojke. Na vrhu koplja nalazi se đavo s trozupcem. (Napomena: "Što Bog da i sreća junačka" zapravo je staro srpsko i hrvatsko geslo, koje je, inspirisan junačkim narodnim pesmama, ban Jelačić uzviknuo prilikom prelaska Drave 1848. godine.)
