Location: Stanley Park, Vancouver.
Burgee: Pennant 2:3. White field. Red chevron from mid-point of all three edges. Letter V in upper hoist, letter R in lower hoist, and letter C in fly.
Note: "That a club to be called the Vancouver Rowing Club be formed, the charter members of which to be all the members of the Vancouver Boating Club and the Burrard Inlet Rowing Club who are in good standing. With this motion being passed unanimously by a meeting of both clubs on April 1st, 1899, our present club came into being. The VBC was the more senior of the two clubs, having been formed in 1886, . . . This is reflected by that year being emblazoned on our Club Crest. The BIRC was formed four years later."
