Burgee: Pennant circa 3:5 (web photo image). Blue field fimbriated red on three edges and charged with a white number 6 (underlined) towards the hoist and, on the fly, the horizontal white capital letters GBR.
"There are some 1,500 6 Metre boats around the world today, and the UK has one of the largest fleets. Early Fife boats built in 1907 are still racing often against new Moderns. Some classics have been beautifully modified for cruising; several race only occasionally.

Note: The burgee of the International 6 Metre Association uses the same design but omits the letters GBR.
