Flag of Royal Southampton 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.

The Dumpy Book of Ships and the Sea (1957) shows the burgee blue with the shield from the Southampton city coat of arms (party per fess argent and gules three roses counterchanged, two in chief, one in base), surmounted by a crown.
