Burgee: Pennant circa 3:5 (web photo image). Blue field fimbriated red on three
edges and charged with a white number 6 (underlined) towards the hoist and, on
the fly, the horizontal white capital letters GBR.
"There are some 1,500 6 Metre boats around the world today, and the UK has one of the largest fleets. Early Fife boats built in 1907 are still racing – often against new Moderns. Some classics have been beautifully modified for cruising; several race only occasionally.”

Note: The burgee of the International 6 Metre Association uses the same design but omits the letters GBR.
