The Real Club Náutico de Barcelona, Barcelona, Catalonia. The Club was established in 1879. The flag is a blue burgee with the register ensign of Barcelona of 1845 on the canton and the Royal Arms of Spain from 1759 to 1931 (Charles III to Alphonse XIII) in the center.
The Real Club Marítimo de Barcelona and the Real Club Náutico de Barcelona merged in 1902 to form the Real Club Barcelona, but the new society only lasted until 1909, when they broke apart. Both club houses are next to each other on Barcelona's harbour.
