ADAC Yacht Club(Allgemeiner Deutscher Automobilclub)

[ADAC boatflag2]
image by Klaus-Michael Schneider, 21 Aug 2008
based upon a photo located by Jörg M. Karaschewski, 6 Jul 2003

Today the ADAC yacht club probably does no longer exist. My next door neighbour is employee of the club, she doesn’t know anything about the existence of the yacht club. Instead there are many other yacht clubs members of the ADAC, which is an automobile club.
Description of flag#1: It is a white triangular pennant, divided by a reddish Scandinavian cross with yellow and black fimbriation (colours of German national flag). The intersection point of crossbars is superimposed by a white roundel with red-yellow-black fimbriation containing a black eagle, surrounded by black capitals in German Fraktur script “ADAC”. The horizontal crossbar is shaped like an arrowhead at the flyend. In the upper hoist is a diagonal black anchor with a rope.

I was reading my car club newsletter where there is a report from 100 years of german national auto-club ADAC. It includes a photo from 50 years celebration held in 1953, showing president Theodor Heuss (first West German president 1949-1959, serving two terms) visiting ADAC. In the background there is a flag of ADAC, vertically displayed - white with black cotized Scandinavian cross on the center of which is a black bordered white disk with black displayed eagle between letters ADAC written in German Fraktur.

What strikes me as odd is that the flag has certainly a political connotation that I find unusual for 1953, though certainly this is not based on the Nazi flag, but the older Imperial banner. Is the flag still used?
Željko Heimer, 27 Jun 2003

An actual ADAC boatflag (Allgemeiner Deutscher Automobilclub, Munich, Germany) was just sold at eBay.
Jörg M. Karaschewski, 6 Jul 2003

Very much like what I saw in 1953 photo. Of course, there the flag was rectangular and without the anchor, but that is quite expected, right. The colours I was not aware, I assumed the "Prussian" cotized cross (i.e. like Imperial naval ensign), but obviously the cross is red with yellow and black borders.

Argo was the vessel on which Jaso and the Argonauts sailed to Colchis to capture the Golden Fleece. They succeeded with the help of the magician Medea. On the way back, Jaso abandoned Medea, who by revenge cut the throat of their children. The story inspired several writers such as Euripides, Seneca and Corneille, as well as the movie maker Pier Paolo Pasolini, with Maria Callas as Medea.
