Description of the flag

The Buzzards Yacht Club has existed since 1930. Their primary mission was and is family racing and sailing. They also have Sailing School for children and for adults. Also, the Buzzards are members of the Southern Massachusetts Sailing Association.

They have a burgee, described in their By-Laws:
"Article VII
Distinguishing Signal

The distinguishing signal of the Club shall be a colored Burgee, its hoist being two-thirds of its length. A diagonal white stripe of equal width throughout its length, the upper edge of which shall comprise the middle one-third of the upper edge of the Burgee, shall run diagonally to the tack of the flag. Two triangles comprise the rest of the Burgee. The upper triangle shall be red, the lower triangle blue. A five-pointed red star shall be superimposed on the center of the white diagonal stripe."
