      Two bands with blue swastikas set into squares, and one band with three stars partly filled with yellow embroidery against a blue background.

      The first two bands are 1.5 cm wide, the third 2 cm. All three bands are parallel to each other, at a distance of 3 cm. There is a selvedge along one side of the fragment, and a rolled hem along the one opposite. The bands are at right angles to hem and selvedge.
