Kwajalein Yacht Club Flag

The Kwajalein Yacht Club is located on Kwajalein atoll (Marshall Islands), 843'N 16744'E. Kwajalein is the largest (16.39 sq. km) and the second most crowded (9,311 inhabitants, therefore a density of 568 inhabitants per sq. km) of the atolls constituting the Republic of the Marshall Islands.

The flag features a Royal Blue background with the initials of the KYC on the left. The symbol incorporates the natural geographic shape of Kwajalein Island into an old-style anchor used by sailing vessels of old. The KYC commissioned Melissa Dethlefsen to come up with a design that included design elements from the original flag, while at the same time, displaying a more modern design theme. Several designs were presented, and this design represents the choice of the KYC Members.

The burgee of the yacht club was light blue with a white border. Letters K Y C in white are placed in a triangle pattern above the geographical map of Kwajalein, in white.

Mayson Kaye repots from info by Peter Edwards a similar burgee, differing only in that the blue colour used is dark blue, and that the map is "voided" (i.e. outline only). 7 June 2004

That flag (and its variant?) has been retired (about 2 years ago).
