[HZC burgee]by Ivan Sache

Hofstade is a Belgian city incorporated into the municipality of Zemst since 1976. Hofstade is located south of Mechelen, on the road to Leuven. BLOSO (the sport and leisure agency of the Flemish government) owns in Hofstade a domain with a 35-ha lake.

Until 2002, the Hofstade Zeil Club was known as VVW-Hofstade and used the VVW burgee. Today, it has c. 100 members and uses a burgee designed by Thierry Demblon. The burgee is white with a large blue stripe along the hoist and a big yellow H in the white field. Blue stands for water and air, white for the sails and yellow for the sun, warmth and friendship.
