The white supremacist political organization National Alliance (NA) was once labeled as the United State's fastest-growing neo-Nazi group before the death of William Luther Pierce in 2002. The NA had been founded by Pierce in 1974, and was first headquartered in Hillsboro, West Virginia. At the time of his death in 2002 it ran a white power record label called Resistance Records and ran "Resistance Radio", a (now defunct) web radio station that streamed white power rock music across the Internet 24 hours a day and claimed 250,000 regular listeners in America (unverified). It also had a radio show, American Dissident Voices, heard on short wave and streaming audio on the Internet. This group hoped to secure a white living space within North America, where "the physical and cultural presence of all non-whites has been removed." Constant power struggles after Pierce's death have led to a steady decline of NA membership and on 6th September 2013, its end was officially announced.

The last known NA flag had five vertical stripes of blue-red-white-red-blue, with a "life rune" surrounded by an oak wreath on a white diamond in the center.

First National Alliance Flag c1970s

The original flag of the NA dating back to the 1970s was a black-white-red tricolor mirroring the Imperial German flag and the extremist NSDAP colors. It also looks much like the flag used by the Volksfront, a group formed in Oregon in 1990s. (If there is a direct relationship between the two groups, other than their flag designs, it is unknown to me.)

Another flag has had the group name inscribed instead of the oak wreath surrounding the "life rune". The flag was square, hoisted vertically, and had red fringes which added to Nazi look of the whole design with their color. Its photo from Sacramento, California can be found here (image). According to the photo description, it seems to have been taken in 2002 or earlier.
