On 11 May 2005 the Secretary of State for Defence granted a warrant to
Rochester Cruising Club for a Blue Ensign defaced with the badge of the club.
The club burgee is yellow with a red lion, passant guardant, from the arms of
the City of Rochester. On the ensign the lion is on a yellow disc in the lower
corner of the fly. Application for the ensign was made to mark the club's one
hundredth anniversary. It is the first new ensign granted to a club without
military connections since 1977.

I sent the badge to the club's Commodore and executive for their critique. They
approved it and I have quartered the blue ensign as per a photo
provided by the RCC. You can read about the history of the club at: http://www.rochestercc.co.uk/index_files/Page355.htm
