Australian Yacht Clubs currently (2009 Navy List) Entitled to a Special
Perth Yacht Club established 1865.
1882. P Y C in white on blue burgee.
19 May 1890. Granted title ‘royal’. The club website says that “at the same time it was announced that the Lords of the Admiralty had granted the Club the Royal Warrant to fly an undefaced Blue ensign.” This may have been a misunderstanding as on 13 March 1903 the Administrator at Government House wrote to the Admiralty requesting a Blue Ensign for the Royal Perth Yacht Club. A reply dated 24 March 1903 indicated that it was intended that a warrant would be issued, and that individual applicants for warrants should apply through the Club Secretary.

1891. At a General meeting it was decided to replace the existing burgee with a white burgee bearing a red St George’s cross with a crown in the upper canton.
