Luftwaffe Flak Badge

LuftwaAnti-Aircraft Flak Battle Badge (Flak-Kampfabzeichen der Luftwaffe) was a WW2 military decoration, instituted on 10 January 1941 by Herman Goring.  The badge was awarded to servicemen of the Flak artillery personal who distinguished themselves in action against aerial or ground attacks.

Designed by Wilhelm Ernst Peekhaus, the badge was of single-piece construction with a pin back and clasp. It was made in one grade; it had a Luftwaffe eagle at the top and an oak leaf wreath around the outside rim.  In the middle was an 88 flak gun with the barrel elevated upwards to the right. The award was worn on the lower part of the left breast pocket of the service tunic, underneath the 1st class Iron Cross if awarded.
