Flag of Brixham Yacht Club

The Brixham Yacht Club's history can be found at: The club's Commodore was gracious enough to send me some actual photos of the ensign and burgee, and these drawings are faithful to those photos. A variant shows a crown with red dots or circles. This ensign can serve as a variant of sorts, but all current ensigns and burgees are ordered and manufactured with yellow/gold dots or circles. I am not sure about the crown, but the orange on the ensign and burgee represent William of Orange who first set foot in England on Brixham Quay.

Lloyd's Register of Register of Yachts - Ensigns and burgees of yacht clubs and distinguishing flags of yachtsmen, shows special ensign and burgee of the Brixham Yacht Club. For the ensign, it shows the crown with three red dots. For the burgee, the crown is indeed shown with six dots, too small to determine the colour. Yacht Club Burgees, by Colin Stewart, ste57, has this as well.

The club themselves represent it differently again, e.g. as an illustration to the club laws: The World Flag Database appears to interpret the dots as holes in the crown: red on a red field, white on a white field. I wonder what the ground for that might be.
