Name: Ruderclub "Germania" e.V.
Located in: Boppard
Established: 17th May 1922.
Description of flag: It is a white flag with a centred cotized black
cross. In the canton there are dotted black capital letters "R.C.G.B."
at the top edge of the flag. In the centre of the flag is a yellow shield
with a black eagle with red beak and red claws (holy roman empire), superimposed
by a white inescutcheon with a red latin cross (archbishopric and
electorate of Trier). In times of establishment it seems to be a rather
conservative club. The pattern of the flag is obviously inspired by the
imperial German naval flag with the coat of arms of Boppard instead and
the abbreviation of the clubs name in the canton.
