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?

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,
Clay Moss, 25 February 2006
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.
