Description of the flag

A fine picture here shows two official-looking flags in use by the Queen's Swan-Markers. From The New York Times: In Search of Post-Brexit England, and Swans, a trip up the Thames to see a centuries-old custom and, perhaps, find out what it means to call a country home.

It turns out that the Vintners and Dyers Companies (London guilds) share swan ownership with the Queen, and their boats also participate in the ritual. This article http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/world/2015/07/22/globalpost-queen-elizabeth-swans/30506743/ includes a picture of a bunch of their boats together, showing the banners of both guilds.
