The "Nat. Soz. Frauenschaft" (National Socialist Women’s-organization) was formed by absorbing the earlier "Deutsches Frauenwerk" (German Women’s-welfare-organization), and the "Deutscher Frauenorden" (German Women’s-order), into a single national organization. The first pattern Frauenschaft member’s badge followed the design of the earlier "Deutscher Frauenorden" badge, as introduced in the mid-1920s, with minor variations. The colored borders of the badge indicated the command level of its bearer, with golden-yellow for "Reich" level, red for "Gau" (provincial) level, black for "Kreis" (district) level, and blue for the local level. The addition of wide silver borders beyond the colors indicated that the bearer was a leader within their respective level.
