rename reichsadler -> nazi_eagle
I think an "umbrella term" that covers any type of Third Reich-era German heraldic eagle would sound more reasonable, because it won't cause misconceptions among people with lack knowledge of history. Not all of them are the Reichsadler. I will explain here:
- The original Reichsadler was used as the official state emblem/coat of arms of the Third Reich. Its head is facing its right side.
Imagine that word Reich sounds like Rechts (right) as a mnemonic.
- The Parteiadler (lit. "party eagle") that was used as NSDAP party emblem has slightly longer wings that look simpler, its head is facing its left side. Both are not the same thing.
- The Wehrmacht eagle which was often depicted as black shield-shaped Stahlhelm decals. The wings aren't extended, its claws are seen directly grasping the swastika without oak leaf wreath encircling it. Heer one is silver/white, and Kriegsmarine counterpart is gold-coloured.
- The Luftwaffe eagle has both wings extended and curved, head facing left side, depicted as if it's about to fly and clutching on a swastika (no wreath).
Thankfully, the Parteiadler already has its own tag and explanation page. Thank you for reading this suggestion.
