Red Ensign

A defaced Red Ensign is on offer (with membership) at http://www.lloydsyachtclub.com/pages/merchandise.html. I note that in the red ensign the cartouche is white with blue lines, instead of golden lines as in the blue and white ensigns.
António Martins-Tuválkin, 3 June 2009

Note that both the burgee and ensign are only available to Lloyd's Yacht Club members and in order to have an ensign, members must have a British-registered vessel, be fully paid up, and obtain a warrant through club channels.

Burgees

Lloyds of London Burgee (historical?)

Burgee based on Mystic Seaport website, but the current Lloyds Yacht Club website shows the burgee without the red cross.

The burgee now in use is different (plain blue cross...), see the "merchandise' page of Lloyd's YC website: http://www.lloydsyachtclub.com/pages/merchandise.html.
