I've recently been involved in a small way with the RYA. Their certificates sport a rather jaunty little red ensign defaced with a little gold crown.
Is this this the RYA ensign?
Post 2 in http://www.ybw.com/forums/showthread.php?t=44653 suggests RYA members are entitled to wear this ensign. Is this true?
I have just been writing a hefty cheque to the RYA and now have a proper RYA certificate. Am I now entitled to this posh ensign?
I contribute to the RYA coffers through the handsome sum paid to them out of my yacht club subscription. Does this entitle me to this ensign?
If the answers to the above are "no" then can anyone tell me who can fly this flag.
