[Segler-Club Sandhausen (German YC)] image by Klaus-Michael Schneider and Ivan Sache, 13 Jan 2021

This pennant is very interesting. It appears first in the DSB Almanac 1912 - 1919 as that one of "Yacht-Club Tegel e.V.", established 1910 and disappears in 1921. It appears again in 1922 as that one of "Segler-Gruppe Sandhausen" in 1922, same pennant, new president, new base, the group established in 1921 and having only eight members. Finally in 1926 the name was changed to "Segler-Club Sandhausen". The black pennant was divided by an off centred white cross with a red disc fimbriated white on the point of intersection of the cross bars.

Ivan Sache, 6 June 2002

Steinhuder Meer is in the territory of the former state of Schaumburg-Lippe. According to this webpage:
"In 1761, count Wilhelm started the construction of Wilhelmstein, a fortress on an artificial island in the Steinhuder Meer. (The military school in this fortress was later to produce the famous General Scharnhorst.)"
White-red-blue are the colours of this former 'Land', which are still used nowadays and probably this is why they appear on the escutcheon of the Segel-Club Steinhuder Meer, with the slight change of placing them diagonally.
