    WW2 GERMAN THIRD REICH NSRL FLAG

    HISTORY

    The National Socialist League of the Reich for Physical Exercise (German: Nationalsozialistischer Reichsbund für Leibesübungen, abbreviated NSRL), was the umbrella organisation for sports and physical education in Nazi Germany. The NSRL was known as the German League of the Reich for Physical Exercise (German: Deutscher Reichsbund für Leibesübungen, abbreviated DRL) until 1938. The organization was expanded to Austria after that country's annexation by Nazi Germany.

    The NSRL was led by the Reichssportführer, who after 1934 was at the same time presiding over the German National Olympics Committee. The NSRL's leaders were Hans von Schammer und Osten (1933–1943), Arno Breitmeyer (1943–1944) and Karl Ritter von Halt (1944–1945).
