The problem with the current football flags in Germany is: there are always dozens of versions for each of the clubs, and the simple variants shown by Nicolas are sometimes regarded as old-fashioned.

Dynamo Berlin

[Dynamo Berlin] 3:5 image by Eugene Ipavec, 20 Aug 2008

The flag is related to an episode in the history of the currently named ‘Berliner FC Dynamo’, a former GDR football club better known as Dynamo Berlin/BFC Dynamo Berlin. Read all about its involved history here: The club bore the name ‘Sportclub Dynamo Berlin’ 1954-1966, having been founded in 1949 as a police sports football (soccer) club. From 1966 on the renamed club ‘FBC Dynamo Berlin’ would become and remain for a long time the premier GDR football club thanks to massive fiddling from on high.

A larger image of the emblem can be seen here: Triangular shield with rounded corners, one point down and thinly fimbriation in white, flanked by two yellow laurel branches and having a red scroll underneath reading ‘Sportclub’ in white (“antique” German font).  The attachment – larger image available – bears this shield, not so very large in fact, in the centre.  It is fimbriated white and a white space appears between the tips of the laurel branches.
Source: German eBay offer no. 260154960939 (end 2 Sep 2007) put up by “wadenbeisser2006”. No dimensions given but the people holding up the flag may give an idea of its size. The flag looks quite good given the fact that the name ‘Sportclub…’ disappeared in 1966: even if the shield was kept the name would have been changed I suppose.
On German re-unification (1990) the club was renamed and began a long glide downhill, being no longer under high protection.

Nicolas, in your image, flag has 2 different red shades, in the cloth and in the logo, is that right or should reds be the same shade?
Jose C. Alegria, 17 Apr 2005

Yes that is correct that there are 2 different red shades. If there was one red you wouldn't see the difference between the red of the logo and the red on background.
ND, 17 Apr 2005

The name of this club is "1. FC Nürnberg" ("1. Fußball Club Nürnberg"). Here is the club's website.
In the fanshop there are several variants of the flag, for instance this one. In most cases the flags indeed show two different shades of red (the stripe being more purplish than the logo).

FC St.Pauli

[FC St.Pauli] image by Klaus-Michael Schneider, 5 Jan 2007

FC St.Pauli - In its heyday this football-club played in the German Bundesliga. The flag is a horizontal white over ugly brown bicolor with the clubs logo in its centre. The size of the logo differs, it is often smaller than depicted. The colors are based on the clubs traditional sports dress, white shirts and brown trousers. The logo is a red disk showing a white Hamburg gate. It is surrounded by a white circle, containing a black inscription: "FC ST.PAULI" (top) and "1910" (bottom) separated by two black starlets. The inscription "1910" is a little bit embarrassing, because according to its website the club existed since 1907 as a department of the local gymnastics club. The department was changed into an independent footclub later in the 20s.
