A burgee, approximately 3:4, white with a red edge along the fly sides,
gradually widening to form a red point for the last 1/4th of the flag.
The field is charged, at approximately a 1/4th of the fly away from the
hoist, with a black steering wheel with six spokes, with inside the
wheel only the hub showing, leaving room for stocky red capitals HS over
BC, representing the club's name.
The club has a website, where its history page tells us that HSBK was founded in 1956, and started out with some thirty members and boats, the latter mostly rowing boats and small motor boats. Today they have almost 350 members and they harbour some 240 boats, still quite a few rowing boats, but most they are significantly larger power boats and sailing yachts.
The club has a harbour at Hasselby Strand, on Lambar Bay. Furthermore, some ten miles to the Northwest, the club have their own private little island: Landholmen.
The website does not seem to give specific information on the burgee, and on the club house, the burgee is represented slightly differently. I copy this report to the club's chairman, in the hope that he can tells
us whether the drawing is correct, and that he might be able to tell us more about the burgee.
