The burgee of the Real Club Nautico de La Coru&natilde;a, founded in September 1926, is red, with the register flag of the maritime province of La Coruña (actually the flag of Galicia) in the canton, and the royal crown of Spain at the center, after the [Real i.e. royal] title given by King Alfonso XIII in November 1927. As this was Francisco Franco's club, this burgee was the only one which could be flown on board his official yacht, the Azor.
