1898 Lion Flag

Can you please help to identify a British (?) flag I have...it's dated 1898 and has a large standing lion with the words R.A.C. on it.
Steve Winters, 3 Mar 2005

I believe that I have identified the 1898 Lion Flag as belonging to Ruder Club Aschaffenburg 1898.
I researched this flag entirely through the internet and arrived at the following website page, http://www.ruder-club-aschaffenburg.de/downloads/rca-satzung.pdf, needless to say, it's in German. However, I downloaded the .pdf file and converted it into a text file, then using my Multilingual software converted the German text into English.

The following is my software translation of part of the .pdf file.
**********************
3 colors and flag
The colors of the association are green white red.
The association flag consists of STATUTE of the Ruder Club Aschaffenburg of 1898 e. V , conditions 03/2002

2, a right-angled divided field. The left rectangle of the flag field shows a golden, rampant lion, facing the hoist on green background. The remaining larger rectangle of the flag field has a white background and is divided by a red saltire. In the three upper triangle fields divided by the bars the initial letters of the association name are in black set in golden Latin large letter attached. The year of the establishment of the association is drawn in in the same way in the lower triangle field. The large "A" of the abbreviation for Aschaffenburg is in the upper triangle field.
David S Smales, 23 Sep 2005

David S Smales is absolutely right. It is indeed the flag of "Ruder-Club Aschaffenburg von 1898 e.V." without any doubt. According to Rudersportalmanach 1977 (p.187) the lion facing the hoist is white however, the letters in the flyend are black and dotted. According to Rudersportalmanach 2004 (p.232) the flag of the club is nearly the same as the unknown lion-flag. Only the inscription in the bottom of the flyend is "v.1898" instead of "1898", the "v." is above the "1898". According to club's website the flag is the same as the one in Rudersportalmanach 1977, but the letters are not dotted and the inscription in the bottom of the flyend is "v.1898" too. You can see this variant on  Club's Website on the frontpage. I think those little differences depend on the age of the flags or different manufacturers and don't really matter. Smales is wrong however about another point. Of course German and Bavarian is not the same. All papers are of course written in German and I think, it is important to the people of Aschaffenburg being Franconians and not Bavarians although this region (today district of "Unterfranken") is part of the State of Bavaria (today "Freistaat Bayern") since 1803. To Northerners like us, it seems as if e.g. Dutch and Norwegian are more similar to German than Bavarian.

Yes, the flag shown is definitely from the Ruder-Club Aschaffenburg.
