The flag of Cannes features the municipal coat of arms in the centre.
In 2000, the flag seen in many places in the town, and especially near the modern Town Hall, along with the French Tricolore and the European Union flag, had a light blue field. In 2004, the flag was seen with a white field.

Burgee of YCC - Image by José Carlos Alegria, 17 March 2003
Yacht Club de Cannes (YCC; website), one of the oldest yacht clubs in France, was founded in 1860 as the Société des Régates de Cannes, with Léopold Bucquet as its first President. The current name of the club was adopted under Edward Bret's presidency.
YCC has now 600 members.
The burgee of the YCC is composed of two blue triangles placed along the hoist, a white triangle charged with a blue star and a red triangle making the point of the burgee.
