Overview

I located a web site of the Croatian Sailing Federation (HJS) at <www.hjs.hr>. There is a list of all the member clubs with their addresses and other basic info, and many of them have their emblem shown there, not unfrequently it being the club burgee. (choose "Klubovi" in the menu in the left window - you'll get the list of members, click submit for each)

Croatian Sailing Federation


by Zeljko Heimer, 27 June 2001

Croatian Sailing Federation - Hrvatski jedriliearski savez, HJS (3:5).   Adopted: 14th December 1997.
Article 3 of the Statute determines the emblem and the flag of the Federation: "[...] The emblem consists of a blue sail, two red squares slanted by angle of 20 degrees, surrounded by inscribed name and abbreviation of the Federation in blue. The sail is the most prominent symbol of this sport, while the blue colour symbolize the sea. Two red squares are stylization of the state coat of arms giving the embelm the national character. The angle of the elements and the colouring highlight the speed, dynamic and wind. [...]" and further on "[...] The flag is light blue rectangle 3:5 with the emblem in the middle. [...]".
HJS is the top level organization of the sailing sport in Croatia, and all subsequent clubs are members to it.

Jedrilicarski klub "3. Maj"


by Zeljko Heimer, 27 June 2001

Jedrilicarski klub "3. maj", Rijeka - Traingual burgee, quartered in white and light blue, at hoist two white sails. The sailing club bears the same name as a big shipyard in Rijeka, and probably it is somehow connected to the shipyard - I guess it was founded by the workers, and it may still be strongly connected to the company.

ACI


by Zeljko Heimer, 27 June 2001

A swallowtailed flag vertically divided in white and blue, in white field in diagonal are set letters "ACI" in blue, and overall a big italic letter "C" in red.
ACI Club is actually a chain of marinas (harbors for sporting vessels) along Croatian coast, and the flag is more often seen on thir facilities on ground then on vessels, but it has been noted in both uses. The origin of the flag is obviously the international signal flag for letter A (though the width of white stripe is whider here), with the initials of the club added. The club is originating from a small club formed in Dubrovnik in 1960's, latter enlarged and renamed for Adriatic Club Yugoslavia (ACY). Since around 1990, it has changed name to ACI Club, and added red C on the flag (as well as changed Y to I, of course).
The flag of the Club is rather well known, and among other documents, it has been issued on a phone card (April 1999) by Croatian telecom company (HT).
Zeljko Heimer , 20 August 1999

ACI Croatia (2:3~). Adopted: about 1990 - The flag is variation of the Internation Slignal Code flag for letter A, being white and blue vertically divided swallow-tailed flag, with initial of the company in red and blue letters in hoist part. The flag was developed from a previously used flag of the predcessor company called ACY (Adriatic Club Yugoslavia), that was the same with red letters set in diagonal. The company is operating a series of marinas and yaching clubs along the Croatian Adriatic coast and is often seen in their installations and on their vessels. The yacht club "Croatia" operated by ACI actually is the member of HJS and uses an other flag.

Jedrilicarski klub "Adria"


by Zeljko Heimer, 27 June 2001

Jedrilicarski klub "Adria", Split - Rectangular flag 1:2, divided vertically into purple hoist with white triangle and white fly with green shape resembling letter A. I couldn't say anything about the club, and I am not sure either if the emblem here is actually used as a flag, even if it seems so. The name, of course, refers to Adriatic sea.

Jedrilicarski klub "Bura"


by Zeljko Heimer, 27 June 2001

Jedrilicarski klub "Bura", Makarska - Triangular light blue burgee with yellow arrowhead (like in Guyana flag) and the coat of arms of Makarska in hoist. The CoA is like the one preserved in a stone carving on a square in Makarska, and even if today it is represented in red shield and silver hand (cf. Makarska page ), the stonecurved CoAs are bound to be represented differently coloured - here in blue and yellow. The name is Croatian name of the NE wind blowing from the coast towards sea in wintertime, very strong and avoided by sailors if possible.
Zeljko Heimer, 12 March 2001

Jedriliearski klub "Bura", Makarska (1:2~) - A blue triangular pennant with yellow arrowhead (yellow triangle with base at hoist charged with an other blue triangle in hoist) and the coat of arms of Makarska. The coat of arms here is coloured differently then the usual currently used coat of arms of Makarska, This is result of the original being stone carved in city square, and therefore without colouring pattern.

Jedrilicarski klub "Burin"


by Zeljko Heimer, 27 June 2001

Jedrilicarski klub "Burin", Novi Vinodolski - Triangular pennant of red hoist and (dark) blue fly divided by a white chevron pointing to fly and white inscription YCB in hoist. (Though the right translation of the name is "Sailing club", I guess it stands for Yacht Club, and maybe it is the name in english they use). The blue in the original is grey and I would be quite at loos to how to represent it if it wasn't for some other flags there to which I knew it should be blue (also RWB is not uncommon combination - repeating RWB of the Croatian tricolour). The name means also NE wind, as above, but of a milder strength. Novi Vinodolski is in the middle of so called Croatian Litoral proper, and site of long nautical tradition of Croats reaching to the first days of Croat settlment in the region.
Zeljko Heimer, 12 March 2001

Jedriliearski klub "Burin", Novi Vinodolski (1:2~) -  The triangular pennant is tricoloured red-white-blue in chevron pointing to fly and with white initials YCB (presumably for Yacht Club Burin) in hoist.

Jedrilicarski Klub "Galeb"


by Zeljko Heimer, 28 June 2001

J.K. Galeb . "Galeb" means a sea-gull.
Zeljko Heimer , 30 November 1999

Jedrilicarski klub "Galeb", Kostrena - Traingular white burgee bordered yellow with a blue gemmeled cross tunred to circle where it crosses with another red circle within it with yellow anchor in the middle. The flag was already reported by Jose Carlos Alegria Diaz and me, though without the yellow border and with minor diferences in the details. "Galeb" means gull (i.e. seagull), ceratinly not unusual name for a sailing club. Kostrena was part of Rijeka, but recently divided into separate community. Having important shipyards and port facilities of Rijeka, the community is rather rich in Croatian measures.
Zeljko Heimer, 12 March 2001

Jedriliearski klub "Galeb", Kostrena (1:2~) -  The flag follows very traditional pattern for club brurgees, being white with blue off-centered doubled cross with a disk in the middle, with another red ring within which is a golden anchor, the whole pennant being bordered in golden.

Zeljko Heimer, 30 June 2001

It could as easily stand also for "Opatija Sailing Club Optimist" or something else in some other language. Optimist class is class (kind) of sailing boats that meet certain criteria . If I am not much mistaken, these are rather small boats with one sail of characteristic shape (see them in the flag) for one or maybe two persons to navigate them. They are, again if I am not much mistaken, intended primarly for younger (teen) sportsmen.
