This flag, swallow tail with the letter "P," is almost certainly an owner's flag, the "P" of course being "Primero." I've visited Tacoma Yacht Club and found the members to be very helpful, generous people. The owner of the plate should check with Tacoma Yacht Club for further information.

El Primero is found on site and currently is at Gate 1, Blaine, WA, Marina in disrepair.

The flag with P and two stars one on above the other..this is the "House Flag of Sam Perkins" (a powerful newspaper editor and the third owner of the El Primero from 1911 till I think 1955. The next flag to the right on this image is the "Launching Flag" I think used at the initial launch or maybe when they are in the act of launching a shoreboat.
