On the Toronto water front near the Alexandra Yacht Club is the National Yacht Club.

'The official burgee of the National Yacht Club is:
A burgee being a triangular red flag, in proportions 2:3, with a white ordinary cross, a black maple leaf in the upper hoist canton, and a black letter "N" in the lower hoist canton.' (By-laws 6.1)

A photograph can be seen on their site:

The National Yacht and Skiff Club was established in 1894. In 1947 the name was changed to the National Yacht Club.

I have not found any information on the history of the burgee, nor on the use of other flags, such as officers' flags, for flag officers.

Currently the club website at includes a a rectangular version of the burgee, but with the colours being White on Blue. Our page at ca@yacht.html#officer suggests this might be the flag for Vice-Commodore.
