Y, Amsterdam

[Het IJ burgee] by Jarig Bakker, 14 Aug 2004

The Yearbook of the "Rotterdamsch Nieuwsblad" - Wie, Wat, Waar 1941 has two pages with burgees.
Zeilvereniging "Het IJ", Amsterdam - red burgee with a white diamond charged with a blue "Y".
Homepage: founded 3 Apr 1885. Its first harbour was on the site of the present Central Station of Amsterdam. Later on it chose another location near the Shell refinery at the opposite side of the IJ. As usual in Amsterdam they had to relinquish that as well and ended up in the pretty village of Durgerdam (and when you're there you know that's the end of the road) - however they soon found out that they had struck gold, and extended their activities in Marken and Enkhuizen. Still armed with the same burgee.
The official spelling is "Het IJ" - the Y may be in use to symbolize the fork when one leaves the port of Amsterdam, to the left towards the IJsselmeer, to the right towards the Amsterdam-Rijn kanaal..
