The Swastika on the tail, which I didn't even notice, elicited a rash of comments on the Flight Aware page. This airplane first flew in 1935 and was used as a basic training aircraft for the Luftwaffe. Other airplanes from the era have the swastika on the tail as well, so it might be historically accurate. That red is dang near fluorescent though.
How about the Olympic rings on the nose? Aeronautics was an Olympic sport at the 1936 games in Berlin*. That was the only year for that. Guess I'm not surprised what with WW2 and its vast armadas of death dealing aircraft. Kind of took the sport out of it.

*Hanna Reitsch gets mentioned in the page about 1936 Olympic games. She's appeared in these pages a couple of times before.
