In the late 50's the kitebuilder Erwin Mezger from Stuttgart created the "Mezger Drachen". In the following years his kite was seen in the sky over Stuttgart Killesberg park.

Typical is the arrow design (blue - white) and the small banner.
The Mezger-Drachen is a special kite for the low breeze of southern Germany.
wind range: -4 bft line: 80 pt
