Isle of Purbeck Yacht Club (UK)
Location: Isle of Purbeck, Dorset, UK.
Burgee: Pennant 1:2. Field quartered Black (upper hoist/lower fly) and Red (lower hoist/upper fly), quarters centred 1 unit from hoist. Upper hoist quarter superimposed by a Yellow swan.
Ref: Lloyd's Register of Yachts, 1882.

The same burgee was already included in the 1881 Lloyd's register, the first
one to have a register for yacht clubs, but 1882 was the first to list the
British yachts fly the national maritime flag (undefaced red ensign), and indeed they did so already in 1881. Flaggenbuch 1905 agrees that it does so. However, 1890 was the last year Lloyd's still listed the Isle of Purbeck. Either the club close down, or they no longer included any yacht of a size worth mentioning.
Peter Hans van den Muijzenberg, 19 March 2021
The (German) Flaggenbuch 1905 states that the red ensign is used without
badge (i.e. undefaced) by different yacht clubs based on a warrant and lists
this yacht club as using the red ensign.
