Introduction: The Minnesota Twins
Washington Nationals/Senators (1901-1960), Minnesota Twins (1961-present)

     The Minnesota Twins professional baseball team is based in Minneapolis and part of the Major League Baseball (MLB). They are named after the twin cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, both in Minnesota. They compete in the Central division of the American League (AL). They were originally known as the Washington Senators, or Washington Nationals, and played in the national capitol between 1901 and 1960. While in Washington they played their home games in American League Park (1901-1903), National Park (1904-1910), Griffith Stadium, or National Park between 1911 and 1960. The franchise won the World Series in 1924 as the Washington Senators, plus three American League Pennants in 1924, 1925, and 1933.
     In 1961 the franchise moved the team to Minneapolis where they became the Minnesota Twins playing at Metropolitan Stadium (1961-1981), Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome (1982-2009), and Target Field (2010-present). Since their move the Twins have won an additional three World Series titles (1924, 1987, and 1991), three more AL Pennants (1965, 1987 and 1991), four West Division titles (1969, 1970, 1987 and 1991), and six Central Division titles (2002, 2003, 2004, 2006, 2009 and 2010), as of posting this article.
      It should be noted that in the early years baseball teams used pennants rather than flags (hence the practice of calling championships winning the pennant) and there were a host of unofficial manufacturer's variants of these and later fan flags marketed for the Twins and their fans. They included flags, banners, and pennants too numerous to all be shown here.

Minnesota Twins Yacht Flags and Pennants

For those baseball fans who own boats and want to display their team loyalty afloat, these flags are available for them. The flags take the form of either a broad pennant or a square boat flag with either a cap or team logo near the hoist. Each uses the individual team's colors in their designs.
Note: Because of the small size of these nautical broad pennants. usually about a foot tall (approximately 30.48 centimeters), they have also gained popularity as "golf cart" flags. It should also be noted that a broad pennant, or any other flag shape, is only called a "burgee" if it designates an organized boating club.
