Burgee flags

The burgee flag that came with my previously owned Mainship Pilot is faded so I would like to replace it. I like the design but might think about a new design idea. It appears to be a good quality nylon stitched flag and I would like to have the new one match the quality. Has anyone found a good resource for flags. I found a site called Embassyflag.com that does custom flags. Any suggestions would be welcome.
Thank you,

Custom Flag Maker

There is a custom flag maker on ETSY - "Pamela the Flag Chick". Quality work and materials 7 great communication. She's making a replacement pennant (approx. $60) that just blew off in a storm.
The lost pennant was two years old and somewhat faded from 24/7 exposure. The new mount allows for convenient removal of the pennant pole, so I'll bring it in daily like the flag.
Hope this helps.

The traditional name for a flag maker is a vexillographer. Google didn`t much like it either, but it`s right.
Could the burgee in post 1 be a Mainship burgee?

When you order the flag have them make you a cover.
I've made a few for friends and they really help pennant life.
For the bottom mounted staffs you need a cord in the hem or grommet to prevent them falling off.
Fairly EZ home project from a scrap of material and most any sewing machine.

It's definitely not a Mainship flag. It looks to be a Yacht Club or Boat Club Flag. If you know the area your boat came from, you might want to search around that area for clubs. Thinking about it, it maybe a Power Squadron pennant.

I was heading down the same path. Something in the back of my mind rang a bell that it might be Coast Guard Auxiliary or something similar.

My wife made covers for both forward and aft flag poles. The flag on
the bow was used on a car side window, I removed the plastic pole that
fastens to the window and put two grommets for mounting.

I scanned the USPS pennants both current and inactive squadrons and couldn't find anything similar.

A burgee typically represents an affiliation with an organization, like a yacht club, or (as mentioned above) USCG Power Squadron.

I wouldn't want to be flying a burgee that I didn't know the origin or what group it represented. I certainly wouldn't want to insinuate that I'm a member of a group when I'm not.

I had thought that it might be from a Yacht Club but I didnít follow up and soon forgot about it. Today, after some research I found the club the burgee belongs to (see the link below). Thanks for the notice. My next step will be to design my own and have someone reproduce it. Any other suggestions for making custom pennants is welcome. Thanks!

Careful. They may come around to collect the dues--not to mention the new clubhouse fund.

"Pamela the Vexillographer Chic" just doesn't make the same splash!
