Island Yacht Club

A nice interlacing of letters I Y C appears on the burgee.

Island Yacht Club - <>:
"IYC was founded in 1970 by a group of sailboat racers who wanted to offer the best possible value in a yacht club. Located in the Alameda Marina on the sunny and calm Oakland / Alameda Estuary ... IYC is an all volunteer non-profit Yacht Club open to any and all interested in sail or power. ... IYC is for boaters who seek camaraderie and fellowship without pretense."

By laws 2009:
8.1 The Club Burgee shall be a triangular shaped flag 14" high and 24" wide and shall be made up of red, blue, and yellow colors with red over yellow on the outside portion of the triangle and a blue triangle at the mast side of the flag. A black 8" I.Y.C. monogram shall be placed on each side of the flag overlapping all three colors of the flag.
8.2 Any larger or smaller version or reproduction of the Club Burgee shall have dimensions that are proportional to the Club Burgee."

Apparently, the monogram should be readable on both sides. The burgee is shown as a graphic on their website, and appears in a photograph currently on the front page.
