We aren't active at all in the boating club in Bellingham we belong to, mainly because we live so far away and are unable to get up there for the monthly meetings. Plus my schedule is such that we have not been able to attend any of the club cruises for several years now. But of all the club burgees we've seen, we do like theirs a lot. Just a simple seabird on a pennant.

Some time ago we designed our own flag for our boat based on the second photo below but with the bird flying the other direction. We both like birds as well as simple designs and and this particular bird has great significance with regards to the person our boat is named for. Now if my wife can just find the time to make it......

The TrawlerForum design above is okay but I don't care for the web address on it. *Makes it look to me like a magazine ad.

*Very attractive.* I have mixed emotions about the .COM part.* In one sense it is part of the formal name as Inc is of a company name.* But in another it does look like an ad.

So maybe the .com could be in smaller letters.

Looks nice, but I don't like the .com part - and it would be way to small for people to see anyway.
I am sort of partial to more of a red/white/blue color scheme - but, I am no position to talk, since I didn't take the initiative to even design a burgee!
But YES - I would buy and fly the one you designed, looks very professional.

KJ, start making and selling those, and you will be buying a larger yacht before you know it.https://www.sparkimg.com/emoticons/biggrin.gif

Very Nice

It's better without the .com part, but I think the ship's wheel thing is WAY overused by everybody. There has to be a more unique logo out there than that.

*I second that.* I'll buy one but I'll need to wait a while to fly it until we have a proper boat to fly it from.

I know that, but you put the design up there so I assumed you wanted input. Which is what I gave you. If you don't want comments on your design tell people you don't want comments. I'm not going to tell you your design is nice if I don't think it is.

I think it's--- as we say in my business-- a good start. I like the color and the TF treatment. The wheel is predictable and boring and the .com looks like an ad. That's my input. Do with it what you want.

I agree with Marin and will even go further.* The lettering and icon will be unreadable/unrecognizable at any distance.* Need something recognizable at least a couple of boat lengths away.

Interesting factoid that is sort of on topic based on Mark's comment.* I have always preferred the "Red Ensign" that served as Canada's national flag prior to the red and white maple leaf flag.* But a few years ago in a conversation with someone from Canada, I learned that one of the things Canada did when they decided to create a new national flag to represent their independent status was test the designs in a wind tunnel.* The goal was to create a design that would retain its unique recognition no matter how violently it was being whipped around by the wind.* Apparently the maple leaf flag meets this requirement.

*No matter the design, it would probably be recognized only by TF members.
