N.B.: the gold braided border is not a fringe

Obverse: a square light blue field with a gold party type eagle, behind the swastika crossed marshal's batons. The border is rather complex: from the inside a thin yellow line followed by a broader light blue stripe, in the center of which is a line of yellow laurel leaves and berries, the outer stripe is gold and somewhat narrower than the blue stripe, in each corner a white bordered black Balkenkreuz (type of cross used on aircraft during Nazi period).
Reverse: blue field with an Iron Cross of the 1939 type (with white swastika at center and 1939 in lower arm), the arms of the cross extend to the border, in each of the 4 fields formed a gold Luftwaffe eagle, head towards center of flag, border as in obverse. Used July 1940-February 1941. Illustrated in Davis 1975, p. 103 and [Roger James] Bender, The Luftwaffe, p. 284.

N.B.: the gold braided border is not a fringe.

Obverse: a light blue field with a gold Nazi National Eagle grasping a gold wreath with swastika, behind which crossed marshal's batons. The border as in the earlier version. Reverse: like that of the earlier version, except the large 1939 Iron Cross is replaced by a 1939 Iron cross about half the previous size surrounded by a gold laurel wreath. Replaced earlier version in February 1941. Illustrated in Flaggenbuch 1939, pl. Vb, Davis 1975, p. 104 and [Roger James] Bender, The Luftwaffe, p. 285.
