The Ranks and insignia of the Hitler Youth were a Nazi Party paramilitary rank system that existed from 1932 to 1945. The Hitler Youth had existed for nearly a decade before, but the organization did not maintain any particular system of ranks. Such ranks were introduced in the early 1930s and became widespread after the Nazi Party came to power in 1933. Thereafter the ranks and insignia of the Hitler Youth became one of the most common paramilitary systems used in Nazi Germany.

The ranks of the Hitler Youth were divided into an adult leadership corps, which maintained their own system of ranks, as well as the general membership of boys between the ages of fourteen and eighteen years of age.

Reich Youth Leader

Reichsjugendführer (Reich Youth Leader) was the highest possible rank of the Hitler Youth and was held by the Nazi Party official in command of the entire organization. The rank of Reichsjugendführer was only held by two people during its existence, those being Baldur von Schirach and Artur Axmann. Von Schirach wore no particular insignia and can be seen in photographic evidence as donning a Nazi Party brown jacket with Hitler Youth armband. When Axmann took the rank of Reichsjugendführer, in 1941, he began wearing collar patches identical to the Schutzstaffel rank of Reichsführer-SS.
