The burgee of the Real Club Mediterraneo, located in Málaga, Andalusia. Founded in 1873, the only difference between its flag and the Spanish ensign for recreational boats is the shape of the flag (a burgee) and the colours of the crown (all blue in the ensign). Certainly the club with the best record of sailing champions in Spain at all dinghy classes, with many Spanish, European, World and Olympic champions, specially in Snipe, with several times world champion Felix Gancedo, and in 470, with the current Olympic champion Theresa Zabell.
