    It is a white flag with a blue imperial globe topped by a red cross. Around are inscriptions "W" (top), "V" (hoist), "Sch" (fly) and "1921" (bottom), probably in black.
    Either the rowing department of the club has been dissolved or is no longer member of DRV, at least the entry had disappeared in Rudersportalmanch 2004 and is not within the 2010 flag chart of DRV. Looking at the club's website, you can read, that the club had been established as a rowing club. When in 1955 a canoeing department was established, canoeing became the more important branch. Today there is also a sailing- and a dragon boat department mentioned but no rowing department, which must have disapperad somewhere between 1977 and 2004. l
