By order of seniority, British yacht clubs fly a white ensign (the Royal Yacht Squadron), an undefaced blue ensign (32 clubs), a blue Ensign defaced with the badge of the club (57 clubs) or a red ensign defaced (14 clubs). There is also a defaced RAF Ensign for the RAF Sailing Association. Other sailing clubs may have their own flag or burgee. In the list below these clubs are distinguished by the symbol for a white ensign (), a blue ensign (), a defaced blue ensign (), a defaced red ensign (), or other flag (). Where only the burgee is known to us, it is identified by a burgee symbol (). The defacement may be a badge on the fly or on the union.
