The National Socialist League of the Reich for Physical Exercise: In December 1938, Adolf Hitler placed all German Sports activities under the Nationalsozialistischer Reichsbund Fur Leibesubungen (German National League for Physical Education) which became the sports organization that controlled all sports in the Third Reich. The NSRL director was called the Reichssportfuhrer (the leader of German Sports) and he controlled all sports events in Germany, including the German National Olympic Committee. All other German sport associations gradually lost their reedom and were co-opted into the NSRL. This flag, captured by Albert Yasechko, was used on a building located in Luxembourg at the time of liberation at the end of WWII.
