WW2 Norwegian Quisling Eagle
WW2 Era Norwegian Quisling Eagle
The Norwegian "Quisling" Eagle was worn by members of the Norwegian, Pro-German, Nasjonale Samling (National Unity) Party which was fronted by the much maligned, Vidkun Quisling.
Prior to the invasion, Vidkun Quisling collaborated with the Nazi's and was thought by many, to have supported Germany's invasion of Norway, even meeting with Hitler 4 days before Germany invaded. Shortly after Germany's invasion of Norway in 1940, Vidkun Quisling assumed power and announced himself as Norwegian Prime Minister.
However, this was short-lived and he was asked to step down by Hitler himself. Quisling had to wait until February 1942 before Hitler officially named him "Minister President" of Norway. Eventually found guilty of high treason, Quisling was executed in 1945 and his name entered the English language as a widely used synonym for traitor.
This patch is the machine embroidered version of the Nasjonale Samling emblem and comes in grey thread on black wool backing. These badges are truly rare and are perfect for re-enactors or collectors alike.
