Yacht Club de France

[Yacht-Club de France, ensign]by Zeljko Heimer

The Yacht Club de France was established in 1867, and the French Navy allowed the club to use a special ensign with a 5-pointed white star in the center of the blue field of the tricolor. The burgee had the same design.
In 1891, a new club was founded, the Union des Yachts Francais, Société d'Encouragement pour la Navigation de Plaisance. They were granted by the Navy a special ensign with a 5-pointed blue star in the center of the white field of the tricolor.
Both clubs merged and were recognized as one club by the International Yacht Racing Union in 1907. Their clubhouse is located 6, Rue Galilée in Paris.
The special ensign is the sum of both ensigns of former clubs, like the burgee.
