BMW roundel from the Bizarro World (East Germany, 1950's)

If my X5 had been red, then I might've gotten red & white roundels, or not.

But, while looking for the roundel's history, I re-discovered the EMW roundel (I read about the East German factory from a magazine, back in the 60's), and thought that it would make an unusual modification for non-purist BMW owners (especially those with red X5's).
