Description of the flag

The flag is the defaced Blue Ensign of the Royal North of Ireland Yacht Club, which carries (as do all British Ensigns) the Union Flag in its canton (or upper left corner), with a yellow shamrock below a St Edward's Crown in the fly half (or on the side opposite to the Union). The Club Burgee is, of course, triangular with a blue field bearing the same shamrock and crown. Unfortunately however, I do not have a date when this particular Ensign was authorized.

The Club was formed in 1899 by an amalgamation of the Ulster Sailing Club with the Cultra Yacht Club, and was initially called the North of Ireland Yacht Club. It was given the title Royal by King Edward VII on 2nd September 1902, and granted a special ensign by Admiralty Warrant in 1903.
