This burgee - and a few others - are clearly inspired in the Imperial war ensign. I assume that all those clubs were established at least before WW II.

"Long" pennant

[Hamburger Segel-Club e.V. (long,YC, Germany)] image by Klaus-Michael Schneider, 10 Jul 2007

The problem is, that there exist different versions of that flag. On the car-sticker version the black roundel is just touching the black lines of cross-fimbriation. On the wall of clubs boathouse is an image, in which the roundel exceeds the crossbars. This one is the version of the flag, hoisted upon the boat house at the banks of Alster lake.
