Estb. 1992.
Burgee: Pennant 1:2. Beige field fimbriated black superimposed with an orange steering wheel centred 1/2 unit from hoist.
Note: "We started as the 'Dutch Barge Association' because the founder members had Dutch barges. With newer members owning English, French and other converted barges - or modern . . . it made sense to drop the 'Dutch' - but the familiar 'DBA' was kept. So formally we are 'DBA - The Barge Association' but in conversation we are either 'DBA' or 'The Barge Association' - but we are NOT the 'Dutch barge association' or 'the DBA'."
Quote: correspondence Andy Soper, Chairman DBA.
