Identification Needed for Maritime House / Line Flag

Postby otrolado » 04 Feb 2012 06:10

Hello,

I recently got this cap and am trying to identify what shipping line is associated with it.
The cap has a maker's mark of a tailor in Philadelphia.
I am trying to identify the flag shown on the badge, which I assume is the house / line flag of the company.
I know the Philadelphia and Reading line had a red flag with a black anchor and stars. But this one is red with a white anchor. Also, it is triangular while the P & R line was a rectangle. This could just be an early / different version of it, but I am not sure.
Thank you in advance for any assistance!

Based on the design of the badge (100% certain) this is a US Yacht Club badge and the flag is the club burgee
