The club has a logo, showing the crossed flags of "Böllberg" and "Nelson" rowing clubs. Perhaps the club is using both flags side by side. Klaus-Michael Schneider, 3 Nov 2007

club's data

The clubs Hallescher Ruderverein "Böllberg" von 1884 e.V. and Rudergesellschaft von 1874 "Nelson" e.V., located in Goslar, merged on 5 June 1993 in Halle.
The sports association was called earlier SC Chemie Halle (Sportclub Chemie Halle). Abbreviation: HRV Böllberg/Nelson
Klaus-Michael Schneider, 3 Nov 2007

The coat of arms in the left flag corresponds to the coat of arms of Halle.
To the history of the association, or better all rowing associations of Halle, there is on our website the historypage.

Have not been able to identify the following flag pin. Interesting that the style (note the rope detail wrapped around staff) matches another flagpin identified as the sport club Slavia Praha Rowing Club. Perhaps another club with international members?
Ann Meacham, 24 Jul, 2009

It might be a flagpin, showing an erroneous version of the flag, of former Rudergesellschaft „Nelson“ Halle, before German reunion located in Goslar. The club meanwhile merged with RC Böllberg Halle and is today part of SC Halle. The flag of “Nelson” however had only 9-stripes.(I checked it at Rudersportalmanach 1977 and the club’s website as well). Due to all other parts however it is a perfect match.
To be on the safe side, I send a copy to SC Halle, maybe they can reconfirm my information.

RG Nelson

[Rudergesellschaft Nelson (RC, Germany)] image by Klaus-Michael Schneider, 3 Nov 2007

Name: Rudergesellschaft von 1874 "Nelson" e.V.
Located in: Goslar
Established: 29 March 1874
It is a horizontal 9-stripes flag with alternating red and white stripes, starting with a red one. The flag has a square white canton divided by a blue centred cross. In the canton's upper hoist quarter is a blue over white over red horizontal tricolour.

Brief History:
On 13 October 1874 the club was established as Ruderklub "Nelson". By age it was the no.15 in Germany. The first race was made in 1881, when the clubs "Trafalgar" and "Neptun" had been established in Halle. In 1910 the rowing department of Akademischer Turnverein "Gothia" joined the club. After WWII the remaining members probably joined "Böllberg". Others re-established the club in Goslar, then (West-)Germany.

Located in: Halle/Saale

Source: flag chart

Brief History:
In 1884 the rowing clubs "Trafalgar" (established 1881) and "Germania" established 1882) merged, forming the Hallescher Ruderclub von 1884, which was renamed in 1915. The appendix "Böllberg" was added, after the club had opened a new boathouse outside the city. After WWII members of all three existing rowing clubs in Halle were united in "Böllberg". I couldn't find out, whether the name was changed or not.
