On 4 March 2008 Hellfried Müller gave to me information as follows:
The Club was renamed in 1998 to Pro Sport 24 Berlin, when German Mail, after having changed from a governmental organization to a private company, ended its sponsoring. The club had been established in 1924 as a club for civil servants working for German mail. Today the club has more than 5000 members in 25 departments, among them rowing, sailing and canouing, each of the three having an own flag. Müller claimed that the club is no.2 by number of members after Hertha BSC (football) but having the largest number of active members, i.e. without supporters all over Berlin.

Klaus-Michael Schneider, 18 Nov 2008

Brief history:
Rowing after WWII was done in Schmöckwitz in 1948, using the boat house of former rowing club "Burgund" (flag unknown). In 1949 the "Sportgemeinschaft Rauchfangswerder" was established, which was integrated into "BSG Rotation Berlin" in 1950.
The club moves to Berlin-Karolinenhof, using the boat house of former rowing club "Preußen" in 1954. Since then it is sponsored by "Berliner Verlag", a little bit later by "Verlag Neues Leben", both publishing houses.
Since 1959 the club is sponsored by "Berliner Druckerei", a printing company, until its dissolution in 1992.
After German reunion meeting with members of rowing club "Preußen", located in West-Berlin and restituted as owner of boat house. Begin of cooperation and friendship.
In 1990 the club is renamed into "SSV Rotation Berlin" and applies for membership in the Berlin section of German rowing association DRV. In 1991 the department rowing of "SSV" left the club and is re-established as a mere rowing club, calling itself "Rudergemeinschaft Rotation Berlin e.V." After negociations with "Preußen", which was still owner of boat house, there was a treaty in May 2003 and "RG Rotation" became owner of the boat house on 22 September 2003.
Klaus-Michael Schneider, 4 Dec 2008

We learn that sports associations (SV's) were organized on professional production lines in 1951 - 'Rotation' being meant for publishing and the printing industry - and uniting sports clubs of various kinds but retaining the link with their labour backgrounds.

It is a white flag, divided by a broad black horizontal line, cotized white and black. In it's centre is a white roundel cotized black with a black "R" and a black disc with a black line upward and a horizontal line embowed at its end.
Source: Rudersportalmanach 2004
Klaus-Michael Schneider, 18 Nov 2008

Further description of logo:
'ROTATION' (i.e. rotary [press] ); the gap in the rim is caused by the representation of a broad sheet of paper drawn out from a roll; for good measure a black initial 'R', serifless, is placed in front of the sheet of paper. You could even say that the second letter of the name 'O' is recalled by the roll. The left rim in the flag of RG Rotation is superimposed by the "R" however.
An image of the logo can be found here.
