[New Bern Yacht Club flag] image located by Peter Edwards, 12 July 2018

"The seven founding families (the Brown's, the Anthony's, Bond's, Nelson's, Church's, Green's, and the Wachovy's) had come to New Bern from other states and appreciated the quaint, historic city at the confluence of two rivers [Neuse and Trent] . . . The founding families' burgee had two [red] stars [photo]. The twenty charter members' burgees had one star.” [No reply to request for the location on the burgee of the one star].
