Introduction

The website of the German Sailing Federation (Deutscher Segler-Verband, DSV) listed 273 German yacht clubs in August 2000. I have prepared flag images using the images at each yacht club's website. My contribution is not exhaustive, since several burgees were not shown clearly enough on their respective yacht club website or far beyond my drawing skills.

The burgee of Freie Vereinigung der Tourensegler Grünau 1898 e.V. and a few others - Hamburger Segel-Club e.V., Segler-Verein Trave e.V., Wilhelmshavener Segelclub e.V. - are clearly inspired in the Imperial war ensign. I assume that all those clubs were established at least before World War Two.

The German abbreviation "e.V." stands for eingetragener Verein, registered association.

I have drawn the whole series with proportion 3:5 as a simplification. Burgee images shown on the yacht club pages are often not very clear when they include real flags, and I do not trust too much the computerized renditions shown on other pages. Regarding Spandau and other ancient yacht clubs, I believe their classical burgees are in the classical 3:5 proportion. Some more recent burgees have less classical designs (I mean not "heraldical") and may have less "classical" proportions.
