Burgee of ICoYC, as sold

I happened upon this one: International
Council of Yacht Clubs, ICOYC. Apparently a gathering of supposedly leading
Their burgee can be seen at http://www.icoyc.org/Default.aspx?p=dynamicmodule&pageid=401453&ssid=324543&vnf=1.
Curiously, the burgee as illustrated <email@example.com>, 3:5, differs from the burgee as photographed <firstname.lastname@example.org>, both in ratio and in shades. As sold the burgee is 2:3 (18 x 12 inch or circa 45 x 30).
From that same page: "Members of yacht clubs in the ICOYC have the exclusive right to fly the Councilís burgee and wear a lapel pin. We encourage members to promote the organization and show pride in their affiliation with ICOYC.
Any yacht taking part in an ICOYC event is expected to fly a an ICOYC burgee!"
Any such yacht is must also be a member to one of the member clubs to do so, and that club will expect them to fly their burgee as well. A yacht may even be part of several such (or similar) clubs, which are likely to all demand specific positions for their burgee. Things may get very crowded.
