Triton, Utrecht

[Triton burgee] by Jarig Bakker, 23 Mar 2005

The Yearbook of the "Rotterdamsch Nieuwsblad" - Wie, Wat, Waar 1941 has two pages with burgees.
Utrechtsche Roei Vereeniging "Triton", Utrecht - a blue burgee with the club's logo in white in the center. The club's homepage seems to have a similar background - an oar and an anchor (that most useful asset for rowing boats, especially Triton, who likes to give opponents a honorary headstart) seem to be part of it...

Triton, Utrecht: in the emblem is no anchor. The Triton-emblem consists of intertwined letters "USRT", from which issuing a male torso blowing a conch shell. In Greek mythology Triton was a merman, son of Poseidon, riding over sea on a sea-horse, blowing a conch shell. You can see the emblem on their website.
