"[On 15th. January 1873] The club was to be named after the Princess of Wales, later Queen Alexandra, and to be known as 'The Alexandra Club'. . . [in] 1878 [a] proposal was carried unanimously and the Alexandra Yacht Club [was] born. . . . Six designs for a burgee were drawn up but the one chosen was red with the Essex Arms . . ." [In 1883] the burgee was changed to blue with Essex Arms".
