[Aegir, Groningen burgee] by Jarig Bakker, 22 Mar 2005

The Yearbook of the "Rotterdamsch Nieuwsblad" - Wie, Wat, Waar 1941 has two pages with burgees.
Groninger Roei vereniging "Aegir", Groningen. A white burgee with a red five-pointed star.
Aegir is the rowing club of the student society "Vindicat atque Polit", the largest society. It was founded in 1878 and is still going strong.
Jarig Bakker, 7 Sep 2004

Dutch student rowing clubs in general don't use burgees, just the club-flag. For the Groninger "Aegir" student society only a rectangular flag is used.

[Aegir, Hillegersberg] by Jarig Bakker, 14 Aug 2004

It has its own homepage. Now named Watersport Vereniging Aegir, Rotterdam, founded 16 Jun 1926 - it still uses the same burgee.

[Alkmaarsche R.Z. burgee] by Jarig Bakker, 14 Aug 2004

That is still the club's logo - see its homepage - it was founded in 1910 and has at present 900 members. The burgee has remained the same; the castle is the city of Alkmaar's factotum.

Amstel, Amsterdam

[De Amstel burgee] by Jarig Bakker, 14 Aug 2004

The Yearbook of the "Rotterdamsch Nieuwsblad" - Wie, Wat, Waar 1941 has two pages with burgees.
Roei en Zeilvereniging "De Amstel", Amsterdam (Row- and Sailing club). A burgee bright-blue over white with in the center a dark blue diamond charged with a white anchor with in the center two white clubs. The Club does still exist according to
its website - the club building is for hire as a party-center (but on warm summer evenings one has to go inside by 22.00 p.m. as the neighbours will complain!). On that site is a flag, essentially the same but a bit more elaborated: a flag blue over white with in the center the club's emblem: a white anchor on two rowing oars in saltire..

Amsterdam WV

[Amsterdam burgee] by Jarig Bakker, 2 Dec 2004

Watersportvereniging Amsterdam, after image on this site: blue burgee with in the center, reaching fly and hoist, a red diamond, charged with a blue letter A. This club was founded 27 Jan 1918, and is situated at the entrance to the "Amsterdamsche Bosch", a large forest area where you least expect it.

Argo, Wageningen

[Argo burgee] by Jarig Bakker, 14 Aug 2004

The Yearbook of the "Rotterdamsch Nieuwsblad" - Wie, Wat, Waar 1941 has two pages with burgees.
Wageningsche Studenten Roei Vereniging "Argo", Wageningen (Gelderland). Flag: horizontal green - white - green, with at top hoist an ancient sail/rowing ship above something (perhaps the golden fleece, perhaps the name???), all white.
At its homepage is a nearly identical flag, with even unclearer device.
Jarig Bakker, 14 Aug 2004

The "thingy" below the ship is indeed nothing else than a name-tag: a rectangle charged with the letters "ARGO".
