German Society for the Rescue of the Shipwrecked

White flag with a dark blue border and a red iron cross in the center.

Jorge Candeias, 18 Apr 2001

The border around the flag has to be black, as the society's colours are black, white, red. The cross is slighly different. Attached photograph (copyrighted!) from the society's URL.
Ralf Stelter, 18 Apr 2001

From the DGzRS FAQ webpage: The DGzRS flag was granted 24 May 1867 by Decree of the Chancellor of the then North German Confederation. Using the colours of this confederation, the flag shows the Hanseatic cross as emblem. The flag can be seen in this picture of the DGzRS Zander rescue boat.
Santiago Dotor, 21 May 2002

Here is an enhanced version of the the DGzRS flag than is currently on de~dgzrs.html. The arms of the cross are broader. It is described as "Hanseatic Cross"; however it has the usual form of the Iron Cross.
I can't say, however, whether the width of the black rim is correct.
See also the society's homepage.

DGzRS pennant

[DGzRS pennant] image sent by Jan Mertens, 20 Dec 2007

Quoting from the FAQ page (German only – translated): „Flag - The DGzRS flag with the red Hansa cross on white and black border is an official item of the Federal Republic of Germany’s flag handbook.  To document the rescue fleet’s continuous readiness to act, it remains hoisted round the clock.”
For the society’s pennant, see url of on-line shop:  http://www.dgzrs.de/index.php?id=7, select ‘DGzRS – Klassiker’ page 2: clickable photo showing pennant, art. no. 5020,  dimensions given as ca. 20 cm x 30 cm, price 11.00 €.
A German eBay offer no. 190174809722 (end 12 Dec 2007) put up by “bergischerloewe06” shows the same pennant, giving dimensions as 19.5 cm x 34 cm.

Boat Flag (Bootsflagge)

The white flag has a black bordure. In the centre is a cross the way like an iron cross but red. (We could perhaps say a red, cotized cross patty)
