Triton, Utrecht

[Triton burgee] by Jarig Bakker, 23 Mar 2005

The Yearbook of the "Rotterdamsch Nieuwsblad" - Wie, Wat, Waar 1941 has two pages with burgees.
Utrechtsche Roei Vereeniging "Triton", Utrecht - a blue burgee with the club's logo in white in the center. The club's homepage seems to have a similar background - an oar and an anchor (that most useful asset for rowing boats, especially Triton, who likes to give opponents a honorary head start) seem to be part of it...

Triton, Utrecht: in the emblem is no anchor. The Triton-emblem consists of intertwined letters "USRT", from which issuing a male torso blowing a conch shell. In Greek mythology Triton was a merman, son of Poseidon, riding over sea on a sea-horse, blowing a conch shell. You can see the emblem on their website.

De Twee ProvinciŽn was a sailing club, founded in 1911, and since 1912 co-operating with Vereniging Watersport Paterswolde of 1912. Finally in 1974 the two clubs formally merged. The name of the new club is the combination of the names of the two older clubs: "Vereniging Watersport De Twee ProvinciŽn".
