The 12 o'clock position on the platter shows a hand painted New York Yacht Club burgee crossing staff with the Commodore ensign. Beneath the flags is a flowing banner reading "Flagship". The reverse of the platter includes a series of hand painted digits representing Morgan's personal patter number.
