What is a burgee?

Almost every Yacht Club has a unique Burgee (flag) that identifies their member’s boats. There’s a lot written about etiquette on how to fly your Burgee depending on vessel type. Modern sailing vessels fly the Burgee from a lanyard under the starboard spreader on the mast, while older sailing vessels fly the burgee from the main masthead.  Power boats fly the Burgee off a short staff on the bow. Yachties love “Opening Day” when they get to parade their yachts and fly their Burgees.
