This the flag of the NSM (National Socialist Movement). These guys' demonstrations are now reaching into the several hundreds of Stormtroopers instead of the usually seen handfuls.
Rick Prohaska, 31 January 2010

A ~3:5 flag divided diagonally in four parts: the upper black with white letters "NSM", the bottom dark red with black letters "USA", the hoist very very dark blue with 13 five-pointed white stars in three columns (6+4+3) and the fly horizontally stripped dark red and white with 13 stripes.

It looks like a compound version of de^933af (Flag of Commanding Generals of the German Air Force in 1933-1945, here standing for a generic Nazi flag) and any US 13-star flag us-1777, with obvious symbolism.

The National Socialist Movement (NSM) is currently the largest neo-Nazi group in the United States. The NSM promotes its anti-Semitic and racist ideology at rallies throughout the country, particularly in the Midwest, and through the group's website, internet-based radio programs, white power music companies and video games. Members wear Nazi uniforms and openly display swastikas to a degree unusual even among white supremacists. Prior to the introduction of this new "Americanized" flag the old American Nazi Party commonly used the traditional National Socialist German Workers Party (NSDAP) flag with a small blue earth globe defacing the swastika at the center.

A flag version without the inscriptions *NSM and *USA* also exists. It was seen in Leith, North Dakota, where the NSM was trying to establish a "white homeland". A photo of this flag was shown in the report about the demonstrations against these activities, which took place on on 2013-09-22. video.

Another new variant flag displayed at Charlottesville was that of the National Socialist Movement (NSM) who were there to promote their anti-Semitic and racist ideology with a new twist on their organizational flag. They seemed to have replaced the swastika with a Odal Rune, sometimes referred to as "Odin's Rune." Its a symbol of a Pagan Religion called Odinism and a favorite of many modern extremist hate groups.

The rune has a double fimbriation, inner in white and outer in black, as did the swastika in original flag. The inscriptions NSM in white on black field and USA in black on red field are also kept, although may sometimes be omitted, as they were in the original design.

The flag seems to have appeared in late 2016 and was not much used so far - most of the photos currently available online still display the old flags.
