The meaning behind the burgees:
The CBYRA recognized class flag for CHESSS is the 3rd Repeater, hence the colors and the pattern. The chessboard is also divided into light and dark. The Rook is a strong piece that works solo, or in pairs after "castling, just as single and doublehanded sailors.
The Knight is a powerful, dynamic piece that works best where all the action is.
Another factor in the design- In order to be distinctive and identifiable from a distance, small flags should be simple and have a bold, contrasting pattern.
