Design: The rhythmic monoline script logo features some unorthodox letter-shapes. The flowing line dividing the upper and lower segments is to be seen on another European label from the same time-frame, Radiola.

History: Label scan courtesy of music researcher and collector Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K. Thanks for updated info to collector Georg Richter of Germany, who notes: "The Patria label was produced by Patria Nationaler Schallplattendienst GmbH, Berlin W35. According to discographer Horst H. Lange, the Patria label started at the beginning of the 30s with flexible records, and shellac records with the (one and only) 1000 series in 1939, which were pressed by the Pallas Werke company in Diepholz, Germany."
