Varuna Marine Club was founded in April 1957 in Pattaya. On 26 April 1965 (or 2508 according to the Thai calendar), King Bhumiphol Adulyadey bestowed Royal Patronage on the yacht club, whose name was changed to Royal Varuna Yacht Club..
The burgee of the yacht club is dark blue with a yellow symbol made of two elements. The upper element is the kind of inverted question mark which appears on several Thai flags. I suppose it is associated with the King.
