German War Graves Commission (Volksbund Deutsche Kriegsgräberfürsorge)

[German War Graves Commission] image by Szymon Pawlas, 6 Feb 2010

I went to the Northern Communal Cemetery [Cmentarz Komunalny Północny] in Warsaw and there I saw a blue flag with a group of five white Latin crosses, where the biggest one is in the center, the medium two are aside and two smallest crosses are placed between the biggest and the medium ones.

Here is how the flag looks like; and here are some photos of the flag:
It was the only flag flying over the memorial of German soldiers fallen during the World War II, the other flagpoles being empty.
According to what i found in the Internet, it is a flag of the German War Graves Commission [Volksbund Deutsche Kriegsgräberfürsorge e.V.].
