Our Flag: Steeped in History
The burgee of the North Bend Yacht Club has a lot to say! Burgees are the symbolic flags of recreational yachting clubs worldwide. Ours is distinctive because it describes our home port location and a tidbit about the area’s history.
The NBYC is located at North Bend, Ohio, which lies at the top of the northern bend of the Ohio River near Cincinnati. The burgee’s winding blue line represents the north bend itself. More specifically, our home port is the Aston Oaks Golf Club, which was built on land formerly owned by U.S. President William Henry Harrison.
North Bend boasts the homes of both former U.S. Presidents William Henry Harrison (1841) and his grandson, Benjamin Harrison (1889-1893), and the two red stars represent the two presidents.
