Typically sewn on the side of an M43 style cap. That's what the 3 holes are for.

Helllo it represents the Austria national flower/emblem Edelweiss most often found on the slopes of the Austria Alps therefore closely associated with German Jager or mountain troops. They did wear it on their M-43 caps to denote the regiment. Some SA brigades also wore it upon their Kepi cheers and best, Ryan

I believe the example shown is a Bundeswehr period edelweiss.
