The newly-formed Chipping Norton Yacht Club

has unveiled its burgee.

The club flag has been created by local graphic designer Chloe Taylor who comes from Spelsbury near Chipping

Norton in Oxfordshire and who is currently working at Pinewood Film Studios.

The burgee gets its inspiration from the

international code flags ‘C’ and ‘N’.

Chloe said: ‘I based the design for the burgee on the ‘C’ and ‘N’ of

Chipping Norton.

‘I have discovered that code flag ‘C’ means Yes and code flag

‘N’ means No.

‘I hope that does not

confuse any passing admirals or suggest the club members are indecisive.’.

The design, as well as being used on

the club burgee, will be used on a variety of club products from T-shirts to


The first meeting of the club will be on

Wednesday 30 January at the town’s golf club on London Road.

Membership of the club is open to anyone interested in boats and the sea, not

just those who own a boat.

People joining before the first meeting will benefit

from a ‘founder members’ discount – annual membership for individuals will be £30

while for a couple it will be £50.
