"Laga", Delft: the flag has six red and five white stripes with a white rectangular canton with a black saltire. The design must have been chosen for esthetical reasons. Red and white are the colors of the Technical University of Delft and of the Delftsch student society. White and black are the colors of Delft. (see also De Delftsche Sport).

Loosdrecht (royal)

[Loosdrecht royal burgee] by Jarig Bakker, 14 Aug 2004

At this webpage one can read that it is now royal (Koninklijke Watersport Vereeniging "Loosdrecht"), and it has a new (similar) burgee: on yellow a green diamond charged with a yellow crown. (it is a flash-object).
Jarig Bakker, 14 Aug 2004

The Watersport-Vereeniging Loosdrecht was established on 10 April 1912. The aim of the new club is the organisation of regattas, both national and international, which still is an important part of the club's activities. The club's name didn't include the then common indications, of "sailing club" or "sailing and rowing club", Instead they became a water sports club, to also include motor boats.

Probably on 30 July 1912, the club standard was adopted: "het geel van de plompenbloem en het groen van het riet waren de kleuren die men koos, het wapen van Loosdrecht gaf er het plaatselijke stempel aan." They chose the yellow of the Gele Plomp, the yellow water lily, and the green of the reeds, and as the local charge they used the arms of Loosdrecht.

When the club celebrated their 25th anniversary in 1937, they were allowed to add "Koninklinke" (Royal) to their name, and become the "Koninklijke Watersport-Vereeniging Loosdrecht".

(Source: Foundation Register Round- and Flat-bottomed yachts (SSRP), about the KWVL, https://www.ssrp.nl/netwerk/verenigingen/loosdrecht-koninklijke-watersport-vereeniging-loosdrecht, based on Jubileumboek KWVL 1912-2012.)

Because of the Royal honour, they must have replaced the arms with a lozenge bearing a crown, as 4 years later the Yearbook of the "Rotterdamsch Nieuwsblad" - Wie, Wat, Waar 1941 documents an old burgee and a new burgee, as Jarig Bakker reports on our page. The yearbook shows "a stylized Coat of Arms of Loosdrecht", but I don't know whether that was their choice, or whether the club used it that way.

The same page of the SSRP also includes a photograph of a Program for "Nationale zeilwedstrijden". On it is a drawing of a rectangular flag bearing a lozenge throughout charged with a stylized Coat of Arms of Loosdrecht (though not exactly the same as in the yearbook). It would seem this is the club flag from before the change. It may even be that there's a "new" club flag that came with the "new" burgee. I'm not sure about the distribution of the colours, though.

The club has a tradition of more than a century. Thus, it might well be that they use officers' standards. However, I have not been able to find any proof that they do so.

Lunegat WV

[Lunegat burgee] by Jarig Bakker, 3 Dec 2004

Watersportvereniging Lunegat, Dokkumer Nieuwe Zijlen, Dongeradeel municipality, Fryslân province, after image on this site - a yellow burgee charged with blue letter WSV Lunegat in all kinds of sizes; the A has been treated in an unspeakable way, and has on top of it a blue spade. Dokkumer Nieuwe Zijlen (Frisian: De Syl) is part of the great metropole of Engwierum. In 1477 Bennert van Donia, a notorious highwayman, assisted by Eastern European "Droezen" was taken prisoner in the castle known as "it Heech"; he was transported to Kollum; on the way he fell several times voluntarily from his horse; his custodians were so fed up with him that they killed him in Ter Lune (a km away from DNZ). Ter Lune is also the place where the Zwemmer river/canal flows into the Dokkumer Grootdiep canal.
