Roei en Zeilvereniging "De Amstel", Amsterdam (Row- and Sailing club). A burgee bright-blue over white with in the center a dark blue diamond charged with a white anchor with in the center two white clubs. The Club does still exist according to
its website - the club building is for hire as a party-center (but on warm summer evenings one has to go inside by 22.00 p.m. as the neighbours will complain!). On that site is a flag, essentially the same but a bit more elaborated: a flag blue over white with in the center the club's emblem: a white anchor on two rowing oars in saltire..
