FC Brno

[FC Brno] image by Jakub Grombíř, 16 Jun 2010

This is the flag of 1. FC Brno, football club playing at Czech top level, which is one of the most popular teams in country. This club was founded at 1913 under the name SK Žýidenice (after the Brno suburb where it originally was from), at 1933 it reached top Czechoslovak Football League at the first time. After WWII club several changed its name (Zbrojovka Brno, Boby Brno). At 1978 it gained its single league title.

Flag of 1. FC Brno has blue vertical strip (about 1/4 of length) at hoist and five horizontal strips (red-white-red-white-red).
White and red is taken from coat of arms of Brno and are colours of team kits. Blue is at club logo and it is sometimes added as third colour of city - maybe because we can find this colour at Czech state flag and Moravian coat of arms. There is also mention (in book by Karel Liška and Ludvík Mucha: Klíč k našim městům, 1979) about popular but unofficial design of Brno city flag at 1970s, which was dark blue with W-R-W-R gothic shield in center.
More information at the club's website.

Slavia Praha Rowing Club

[Slavia Praha Rowing Club] image by Jarig Bakker, 18 Dec 2006

I have recently acquired this stickpin featuring a very nice looking enamel red and white flag. I believe it may be an American nautical flag of some kind but I cannot find anything about it on any website. If you could identify it for me it would be much appreciated.
Brian Brecker, 21 March 2006

It is stickpin of sport club "Slavia Praha Rowing Club" (Veslarskíý klub Slavia Praha), see the club's website.
Victor Lomantsov, 18 Dec 2006

This club was founded in 1885, so it is 8 years older than the omni-club SK Slavia (combining soccer, icehockey and a lot more), with which it was merged by the Communists. This merger has been partly undone. SK Slavia was founded in the end of the 19th century as a cycling club and distrusted by the Habsburg government as a breeding nest of Czech national feelings. All Slavia clubflags combine (probably not incidently) white and red colors.
