What is this burgee?

Does anyone recognize this Burgee? It came with our boat. It is well made and in great condition, but I would like to know what it is before I fly it.

Search the thread on the T Forum burgee. I yhink someone mentioned registering our design. If so, check with that registry. Otherwise, ask the PO.

Here is a link to that registry. It probably would not take all that long to scroll through the whole lot, but easier if you could take a guess as to what the first letter is!

International Burgee Registry

In any event, a burgee would typically signify membership of an organisation, and in that case it would not be appropriate to fly it if you are not a member of the particular entity.

If you want a burgee to fly that is a conversation piece as well, you could try this one, and like me end up as a card-carrying Vice-Commodore:

Reminds me of the yacht club in Atlanta. It maintain a meeting place in a bar someplace around West Paces Ferry, a high class neighborhood.
The only requirement was, you could not own a boat.
I'm not sure it is still around.

I also fly the Shaggers burgee with pride, did 7000nm around the loop and Bahamas, had lots of enquires about it. Have done another 1000+ since I returned to Australia. Have had a number of Buddy boaters join the SICYC, a great charity. Have the Vice Commodore number plate on my truck.

Interesting not-for-profit.

Wonder if they would get a lot more interest if they supported more global organizations?

It could be an unregistered "family" burgee.

Looks to me like a U S Power Squadron pennant.. Maybe the three rivers represent the area around Pittsburgh. The chevron blue and white strips were the tip off.

Ours does not have the white outline on the blue, but since the PO lived in Montgomery, I would call that a winner.
