Introduction: Anti-Fascist Socialists (Political Organization)
Antifaschistische Sozialist_innen

Anti-Fascist Socialists (Antifaschistische Sozialist_innen), or more formally Anti-Fascist Socialist Women and Socialist Men (Antifaschistische Sozialistinnen und Sozialisten) are a group of Democratic Socialists, active mainly in the state of Rhineland-Palatinate, with the main goal of active struggle against ultra-rightist movements. Their logo [1] showed two red flags on white, the completely visible one being charged with three white arrows, all within a red ring charged with the formal name of the organization inscribed in white. This is a combination of the emblems of Iron Front and the short-lived Anti-Fascist Action of the 1930's [2, 3]. While a flag seems to have been devised [1], with large logo on red field, fimbriated white, its real-life use is questionable, for no photos have confirmed it so far.

The use of these two flags has been verified and are similar to those of the Iron Front, but with the arrows in center [1, 5, 6]. The arrows always point downwards, either towards the fly [1] or towards the hoist [5]. [See sources above]
