Section IV of the club's constitution (as viewed 24 October 2022) deals with flags:


1. The ensign of this Club shall be the National Flag of Canada.
2. The club burgee shall be a royal blue pennant, twelve inches at the hoist and eighteen inches on the fly with a four inch white stripe running through the center of the pennant from the hoist to fly and having a two inch red cairn mounted on this white field, four inches from the hoist.

3. The Commodore’s Flag shall be the Club’s burgee swallow-tailed with three red cairns in the white field;
- the Vice-Commodore’s, a similar burgee with two red cairns in the white field;
- the Rear-Commodore’s, a similar burgee with one red cairn in the white field.

4. A second but similar burgee having a twenty inch hoist and being thirty inches on the fly may be flown by the larger yachts.

5. The Past Commodore’s Flag shall be the Club’s burgee swallow-tailed with three blue cairns in the white field.

6. No member shall fly the club burgee while receiving remuneration for the services of their yacht.
Though the wording leaves this open, the cairn mentioned is neither a Cairn Terrier nor a rock cairn. Rather it's specifically a stone cairn. It may be it is intended as depicting a specific red stone cairn.

At those commodores' flags are depicted, but there they are drawn more or less as pennants. As the swallow-tail is the mark distinguishing an officer's flag from a burgee, it's a bit curious to see them without those, especially as that makes the Rear Commodore's flag the same as the burgee itself.
