About the flag

Cushendall Sailing & Boating Club is located at Cushendall, Antrim (N. Ireland, UK) on the coast north of Belfast. Website, dominated by a swan and a tower is at http://www.csbc.co.uk. From the ‘Information / About us’ section (upper menu): founded in 1961 as a comprehensive sailing club; strong interest in training, especially the young; RYA centre; very active in competitions; new clubhouse, 1997; now 300 strong.

A rectangular flag appears on p. 2 of this pdf file: http://www.csbc.co.uk/blog/wp-content/uploads/2010/12/Ebb-and-Flow-Christmas-2010.pdf. It shows a green field bearing a red disk within black holding line; on black waters bearing white name “CUSHENDALL / S.B.C.” swims a white swan (shadowed in black at right) towards the hoist; behind the swan appears a black tower having two red-and-white windows above each other and black-and-white crenulations. I believe the swan alludes to an old Irish legend whereas the tower depicts Cushendall’s Curfew Tower: http://www.cushendallcottages.com/cushendall.php.

The commodore's flag is a green swallowtail, with a large disk bearing a white swan before a black windowed tower on a red over black background. The vice-commodore's flag is similar, with a single white disk in the upper hoist. They can be seen on the club website at http://www.csbc.co.uk/.
