Introduction of the Tatzenkreuz
Permalink   


I have recently learned that the first nation to adopt roundels for aircraft identification was France, in 1912. Germany later used the Tatzenkreuz, often wrongly called a Maltese Cross. This is it:

As we know, it was applied to aircraft and tanks, and then superseded on both by the Balkenkreuz, which was nothing to do with the Balkans:

Question is: when and to what items of equipment was the Tatzenkreuz applied?

This is handy. Found it on Pinterest, a site I don't fully understand. No indication of sources, but here it is.
