Could this be a familiy flag, the reason is there were two 'Firequeens' and one of them

was the ex-'Candace' a yacht of 446 tons.

This is not going to help much, but;

The wheel symbol of the Rotarians has only six spokes

The Roundtable has 25 segments

The Japanese imperial chrysanthemum symbol [see Jane’s Fighting Ships of WWI] has 16 petals

However, as far as I can see, the icon on the flag in question has c.30 sections

This is the flag of the Japanese Imperial Family. Each member have their own personel

standard, but all use this flag which is white with a red border and gold chrysanthemum.

There are only 16 petals on the design. What looks like 32 is the result of dark outlines

to the petals, designed to make the gold stand out better on the white background.

HMS Firequeen, yacht to the C-in-C Portsmouth also took part in the 1911 Coronation

Review.

Any chance of a picture of the yacht Bart !

In 1905 HMS Firequeen flew the flag of the Port Admiral so would fly the flag of a visiting dignitary This would be from a mast head not from the stern though that was solely reserved for the ensign.
