Wangerooge is the easternmost barrier island of the East Frisian Islands. This badge commenorates a Lighthouse that dated from 1602. Blown up early in WW1 (December 1914), it was rebuilt in 1933 and served as a dormitory for Hitler Youth and continues as a youth hostel to the present.

The history of the original lighthouse but unfortunately (for me) it's all in German:

Reds, both nice looking tinnies. I do not recall ever having seen either till now. They both appear to be sports related as both show the DRL/NSRL eagle. They refer to a lower district meet and a district festival.

Reds, you are welcome. The eagle is an emblem for the DRL/NSRL organization. I have attached an example of a lapel pin.

Ian, I can pin it to the top (feature it). Not sure that will save it for posterity. Smile It is getting dangerously close to the end of it's days if we lose any more posts.
If all are in agrement I can Start a new title like Day Badges/Tinnies thread #1 and transfer all content to it. Only lose the first post that way. I hesitate because the last one I attempted got scrambled, but I think I know what I did wrong. Roll Eyes Worth a shot?

Barker, Reference your Nierstein tinnie.

This tinnie displays the sun shinning down on the famous vineyards of Nierstein. Which is a city in the Rheinhessen region of Germany famous for its wines and sunshine. It's known as the "Land of a Thousand Hills" with a thousand years of tradition in growing wine. Their is a summer wine fest held in Nierstein every year in June. Hope this helps a little.

Indeed a nice example. I appreciate how much there is to see on individual tinnies. So much symbolism.
