Note that cases where there's no mention, often this will be because no-one mentioned the club. Often that is simply because the person quoting Lloyd's simply focused on a Personal Signal; it does not necessarily mean the publication that year did not include the yacht club at all.

The only other flag was a common Yacht Past Commodore flag, used for the Commodore Emeritus in 2020 when the club selected a new commodore after the previous one finished a 27 year stint.
