Vliet, Leiden

[De Vliet burgee] by Jarig Bakker, 10 Sep 2004

The Yearbook of the "Rotterdamsch Nieuwsblad" - Wie, Wat, Waar 1941 has two pages with burgees.
Leidsche Vrouwelijke Studenten Roeivereniging "De Vliet", Leiden - red flag with a red diamond bordered white charged with a white V.
Female student rowers, yeah. In 1974 it merged with Asopos to become the new club Asopos/De Vliet. According to its homepage De Vliet was founded in 1905. It was then decided to go very slow as speeding would result in getting no babies. Later on the naughty students decided that they didn't care, even Princess Beatrix joined, and we know the rest...

Vrijbuiter, Loosdrecht

[Vrijbuiter burgee] by Jarig Bakker, 7 Sep 2004

The Yearbook of the "Rotterdamsch Nieuwsblad" - Wie, Wat, Waar 1941 has two pages with burgees.
Gooische Watersportvereniging "De Vrijbuiter", Loosdrecht - a burgee blue over white; in the center a red diamond charged with a white V.
Het Gooi is the region formed by the triangle Amsterdam - Amersfoort - Utrecht, in the good old days inhabited with very poor people who did what they were told to do. Now they're telling us what to do via radio and TV. "De Vrijbuiter" means Freebooter, now someone who is just doing what he or she likes. At this website one can see that they still use the same burgee. Loosdrecht (formerly in Utrecht, now in Noord-Holland) is the center of the lake-area known as the "Loosdrechtse
Plassen".
