About the Flags

According to "Portrait of the Channel Islands" by Raoul Lemprière, 1970, "By an Admiralty Warrant of 1894, authorization was given for the Blue Ensign with the distinctive marks of the Royal Channel Islands Yacht Club to be worn on board respective vessels belonging to the club and to its members, subject to conditions. The club burgee is blue and bears the Jersey Arms surmounted by the Crown; the ensign is blue and bears the same distinctive marks. The commodore's flag is the club burgee swallow-tailed; the vice-commodore's flag is the same, but with a white ball in the upper corner; the rear-commodore's has two white balls in the upper corner.

The Dumpy Book of Ships and the Sea (1957) shows the burgee blue, with a shield containing three royal leopards (as in the arms of Jersey) surmounted by a crown.
