Club Nautique de Trouville-Hennequeville

[CN Trouville-Hennequeville]by Ivan Sache

Trouville is a sea resort of ca. 6,000 inhabitants, located on the Côte Fleurie (Flower Coast) on the Channel.
Trouville was the first sea resort in the area, built during the Second Empire, but was rapidly supplanted by Deauville, located across the river Touques from Trouville. Hennequeville is located ca. 4 km north of Trouville.

The Club Nautique de Trouville-Hennequeville has a blue burgee with a red horizontal triangle extending from hoist to fly. The shape of the red device placed vertically along the hoist is not clear.

Société des Régates de Courseulles

[SR Courseulles]by Ivan Sache

Courseulles-sur-Mer is a small recreational port and sea resort of ca. 3,000 inhabitants.
Located on the Côte de Nacre (Mother-of-Pearl Coast) of the Channel, Courseulles was part of the Juno Beach sector during the allied Normandy landings in June 1944. The mouth of the Seulles river hosted a temporary harbour, later replaced by the Mulberry port of Arromanches. On the western beach of Courseulles landed Winston Churchill (12 June 1944), General de Gaulle on his way to Bayeux (14 June), and H.M. George VI visiting his troops (16 June).
Courseulles is also renowned for its oyster parks.

The Société des Régates de Courseulles has a very simple burgee, vertically divided blue-red with a large white star in the center. This design is based on the chief of the municipal coat of arms.
