Friday bike

Cool or what? Found a picture of this moped and did a bit of digging, but came up with two names for it! I've found it referred to as the DKW Typ 155 and as the Zweirad Union Victoria.
Whatever it is, isn't its styling fabulous? It appears to have been built in the late 50s and early 60s, and I assume that its 50cc. Also, its nickname was 'Blechbanane' which an online translator translates as 'plate banana'! I assume something has been lost in translation, so any German speakers know what they mean?

Found a video of one being restored.
