Encinal Yacht Club - www.encinal.org:
"The Encinal Yacht Club was founded in 1890 by a group of boating enthusiasts to ensure the continuation of recreational sailing and boating on the San Francisco Bay. The original burgee portrayed the single blue star on a white triangular field with red swallow tails. About 1910, the burgee was changed to the current pennant shape. This original burgee was recreated for our centennial and a few may be seen now. You may also see an Encinal burgee with a field of blue along the staff with three white stars. These are given, each year, to the retiring Commodore in recognition of his or her service to the club. From its inception until the mid 1950's, the club was located on the bay side of Alameda Island on a pier. Post war landfill operations forced a relocation."
A graphic of a triangular flag, with one of the points of the star pointing up, is shown on their website.
