The United States Recognizes the Swastika Flag as the Official Flag of Germany, 1935

Date
1935-09-27
Description
Letter from U.S. Secretary of State Cordell Hull to Florida Governor David Sholtz stating that the German government has informed the United States that the swastika is Germany's official and only national flag. Previously, Germany had two national flags, the swastika flag and a tricolor flag of black, white and red stripes representing Germany's old imperial past. By making the swastika Germany's sole flag, the Nazis were making a symbolic proclamation that they alone represented Germany. From the date of Hull's letter, Florida and all other states would henceforth have to recognize the swastika as Germany's national flag and display it in any official functions involving the German government.
