Flag of Royal Anglesey Yacht Club

The ensigns for the Royal Anglesey Yacht Club, the Royal Southampton Yacht Club, the Royal Torbay Yacht Club are identical.
Clay Moss, 2 February 2006

The crown is the St Edward's Crown, but not knowing the date upon which the Warrant for a defaced ensign was granted to the club I don't know whether this replaced the Tudor Crown circa 1952?
Christopher Southworth, 2 February 2006

Dates of the Blue Ensigns with a crown on the Union:
    Royal Torbay YC (1875 - current). Crown on burgee.
    Royal Southampton YC (1877 - current). Crown and shield of Southampton on burgee.
    Royal Anglesey YC (1887 - current). Red dragon on burgee.

I'm not sure if this ensign ever sported a Tudor crown, but if it did, here it is.

A brief history of the Royal Anglesey Yacht Club, which began life in 1802 as a Book Society can be seen at http://royalangleseyyc.org.uk/History.htm

After the yacht club was formed in 1885 applications were made on 13 May for the title ‘Royal’ and for a special ensign. The Home Office were inclined to refuse the title Royal on the grounds that the club was too small, until it was noticed that the title had been granted to the Forth Yacht Club, whose members’ yachts totalled 3,083 tons, while the Anglesey Club’s came to 3,418 tons. Royal title approved 17 June 1885. A Blue Ensign defaced with a crown on the Union was granted in 1887.

In 1928 the Yacht Racing Association wrote to the Home Office pointing out that “sixty-seven yacht clubs (including colonial and Irish) which are Royal wear a crown on their burgee, except the following quaint exceptions, Royal Anglesey, Royal Cornwall, Royal Engineer and Royal Harwich.” They were probably wrong to include the Royal Engineer Yacht Club, since the Royal is part of the name of the parent organisation, and not a title approved for the yacht club.

The Dumpy Book of Ships and the Sea (1957) shows the burgee blue, with a red Welsh dragon facing the hoist.
