Courtesy Flag

In the French yachting review "Bateaux" issue Nov 1999, an Italian reader, N Accardi of Roma, states that the courtesy flag which a foreign yacht should fly in Italian waters is the undefaced tricolour and not as I would have presumed the civil ensign with the coat of arms without crown.

Marina di Portofino

In Portofino, Genoa, Italy, we have founded the new Marina and exposed the new flag. See <www.marinadiportofino.com>.
The flag is red charged with a cross gold, in one quarter there is the San Giorgio that is the symbol of Portofino and he's a man on the horse that kill the dragon.
Paolo Fenati (President, Marina Di Portofino), 16 August and 24 October 2006


Yacht Club Adriaco

Just found a page on YC Adriaco (Trieste, founded 1903), showing the various flags:
- Guidone sociale (Club burgee): green, a red cross throughout.
- Bandiera sociale (Club flag): green, a red cross shifted to the hoist ("scandinavian").
- Commodoro (Commodore): swallowtailed club flag (seemingly placing the cross in centre), a red five-pointed star in each hoist quadrant.
- Presidente (President): as the commodore, but disks instead of stars.
- Vice Presidente (Vice president): as the president, less one disk (the one left is the upper one).
- Segretario (Secretary): as the vice-president, but without any disk.
- Guidone di lunga crociera (Burgee for long cruise): as the burgee, only considerably longer: est. height one unit, length five units.

Yacht Club "Circolo del Remo e della Vela Italia"

I found the site : http://www.netgroup.it/crvitalia/BandSoc.htm
There is a chart with the flags of the yacht club "Circolo del Remo e della Vela Italia", Napoli, Italy, established November 20th, 1889 as "Canottieri Italia". The Club´s flag is a rectangular 2:3 red flag with a blue cross of St. George and they have Rank flags. It´s a very curious case, as they have the Club´s flag to represent the society as a whole, but include, among the Rank´s flags, a member´s flag . Usually the club´s flag is the one also used by members, but in this case, members use a triangular shape, burgee.

Another important yacht club is the "Circolo Nautico Ugo Costaguta", Voltri (Genova), Italy. Established in December 1898, the Club´s flag is a white burgee with a red cross of St. George, traditional symbol of Genoa (another Club from Genoa, the Yacht Club Italiano, uses the same, but with colors reversed), and a blue star in a white circle at the arms´intersection.
