The CDU adopted its party flag during its convention in Hamburg 18-22 April 1953, the original resistance flag with a large yellow eagle added.

In 1953 the CDU adopted a flag based on the resistance flag proposal for a new German national flag. It showed a yellow-fimbriated black cross on red, with a yellow eagle overall. This flag steadily went out of use in the sixties and seventies.
