Polizei Decals and Party Shields
Polizei decals stand out from Heer, KM and Luftwaffe decals by the use of a political style eagle. The eagle and swastika, which is surrounded by an oakleaf wreath, are on a black shield.
As with Heer decals, there are a number of different variations. Early Polizei decals are called "borderless" due to the missing white border that is found on later Polizei decals. All polizei helmets, M35, M40 and M42 have decals on both sides of the helmet; the eagle on the left side and the party shield on the right. The party shield represents the Nazi party flag - a black swastika within a white circle placed on a red shield.
