Flag of Austria

The eleventh stamp in the Overrun Countries Series, issued on November 23, 1943, features the flag of Austria. In March of 1938, with the collusion of the National Socialist Party and in spite of opposition by the constitutional government of Austria and the majority of the populace, German troops occupied the country. The Third Reich quickly absorbed Austria, which then ceased to exist.
