Deutsche Segler Verband

[From Flaggenmitteilungen?:] The Deutsche Segler Verband (German Sailing Union), founded in 1888, unites all German yachting people. Its flag consists of a lying black cross with a red border on a white field, with a yellow/black compass rose. Its kreuzer (motorboats?) division has the cross with an oval yellow shield with a foul blue anchor.

Cruiser Section

In the Portimão Marina we saw a lot of flags hoisted in moored yachts, as expected, including this handsome UFE: White ~2:3 flag with red-fimbriated black saltire, and overall a yellow disc likewise fimbriated,with a blue anchor on it. Attached as <xx~uyptm.gif> (anchor from Željko Heimer's <cs~adm.gif>, to be co-credited). Rings any bells?

I think it is the flag of the Kreuzer-Abteilung (I didn't know a translation, sorry)  of the Deutschen Segler Verband (German Sailing Union) - See photo here.

Quoting the English page of the union website: "The Deutscher Kreuzer-Yacht-Verband (German Cruiser Yacht  Association) was founded in 1911 and became the cruiser section of the Deutscher Segler-Verband (DSV) the German Sailing Federation in 1917. We are the largest association of yachtsmen and motorboat owners and enthusiasts in Germany. We have circa 21,000 members – yachtsmen and women and motorboat owners - and together we represent the interests of water sports enthusiasts on the sea, at the coast and on inland waters."
