Club Burgee

[Green Wyvern Yacht Club] image by Ivan Sache, 14 July 2006

Quoting the Green Wyvern Yacht Club website:
"The Green Wyvern was established in 1947 by Bert and Cecil Howard to teach youngsters how to sail. The name and burgee design come from the two schools in Leicester where Bert and Cecil were teaching. The Green is for Alderman Newton's school, whose boys wore a green blazer with a red badge. The Wyyern is for City Boys' School whose blazer badge was a wyvern - the emblem of the city of Leicester."
The burgee is horizontally divided red-green with a yellow wyvern floating overall.
Wyverns are to be found everywhere in Leicester.

At http://www.users.zetnet.co.uk/pmarshall/admin/rules/rules98.htm, in what seems to be a previous version of the club's web page (now at http://www.greenwyvern.org.uk/, the rules can be seen to describe the burgee as we have it, but make no mention of the shape, while the illustration shows a rectangular flag.
