"During the late 1930s, various property owners, along with their friends, met regularly on the banks of Bayou Volanta, as it was known, to enjoy the cool waters. . . . Three of the families, Wadewitz, Godard and Berglin donated property and in May of 1942 these men and others officially incorporated the group in the name of Fairhope Yacht Club . . .

"ARTICLE XVI - UNIFORMS AND INSIGNIA
Section 1.
The official Club Burgee shall be as follows: Red letters (FYC) on a white field through the center with a blue triangle strip at top and bottom.

The rest of the article defines the official cap and the devices worn on it. For the officers, specific devices are worn on the cap, but no mention is made of officers flags."

The Southern Yacht Club show they have in their burgee collection a burgee of the Fairhope Yacht Club where the red letters, fimbriated white, are over all, rather than on the white only.
