The "nautically proper" place for a Yacht Club burgee is actually on a staff at the masthead...but there are issues with interference with those things you mention so you most often see them flown from the starboard spreaders.

Rigging masthead flags/burgees also raises the issue of getting them down or replaced as they will always be in the weather. At best it's another halyard, at worst it's a trip up the mast.
