Flag of YCVA - Image by Ivan Sache, 23 July 2006
The municipality of Pléneuf-Val-André (3,965 inhabitants in 2006; 1,707 ha) is located 20 km east of Saint-Brieuc. Originally known as Plou Nevez ("The New Settlement), the village was probably settled in the 5th century on the site of a former Roman camp.
The sea resort of Val-André was created in 1880 by Charles Cottard, a collaborator of Ferdinand de Lesseps, the builder of the Canal of Suez. This wide, low valley ending in a large sand beach was then known as Val en Dret. Within a few years, a promenade, villas and hotels were built and the new resort merged with Pléneuf.
The port of Dahouët emerged in the beginning of the 15th century as a place from which grain and cider produced in the hinterland were shipped. The masons and carpentars of the village were also famous. The port developed in the 19th century with the Grande Pêche in Newfoundland; quays were built in 1822 only.
Yacht Club du Val-André (YCVA), based in the port of Dahouët, organizes the race Trois jours d'Armor
The burgee of YCVA, as shown graphically on the YCVA website, is quartered red-blue by a white saltire. It might have been inspired by the municipal arms of Pléneuf-Val-André, shown on the municipal website as: De gueules fretté argent au chef de sable au léopard d'argent accompagné de sept coquilles du même ordonnées 4 et 3 ("Gules fretty argent a chief sable a lion passant guardant between in chief four and in base three escallops fesswise argent"). Both Brian Timms and GASO give the coat of arms as "Per fess sable a lion... gules fretty argent".
