Description of the flag

Estb:1907. Location: 100 Datura Drive, Indian Harbour Beach.
Burgee: Pennant circa 7:11(web image). White field charged with a blue circle enclosing a red cross patée centered 3 units from hoist.
"In 1907, a local group formed and launched the Eau Gallie Yacht Club with George F. Patterson as the first Commodore. Others in the group included General John B. Castleman, Alexander Hodgson, the Gleasons and the Rossetters. In 1910, the Eau Gallie Yacht Club built a clubhouse along the Eau Gallie River. . . . In 1936, the club was the venue for the International Moth Class Regatta. . . . On May 29, 1942, members of the club rescued eight sailors whose ship had been torpedoed by a German U-boat. . . . In 1960, the Eau Gallie Yacht Club moved to its current location in Indian Harbour Beach. The Brevard Historical Commission considered the original clubhouse historical due to the influence of the organization on boating in the region and the architectural significance of the building."

The image above is different from the image in the Wikipedia page, which lacks the blue edge and has a different shape of cross.

Lloyd's has pictured this burgee since 1912, and as far as I can see, it has always been pictured without a border, a thick blue circle and a red cross pattée centred, but not throughout the circle as our image has, and with straight ends, rather than ends curved along the circle.

I haven't found an image of an actual burgee at, though.

The club uses the common USA Past Commodore flag, which suggests they're likely to use the common Commodores' flags as well.
