Relative energies are given for the U, B, V, R and I bands for a-3.8 magnitude U-band flare observed on the dwarf dMe star Gl 234 AB on 28 Feb 1985. This flare had a 45 second rise time and 20 minute decay time. The total flare energy from all five bands during the flare was 7 1031 erg, 34% of this total was from the U-band and 20% from the two near infrared R and I bands. The energy density (per frequency interval) implied a rising continuum towards the red, however this only lasted for approximately 20-40 seconds, i.e. during the impulsive phase, after-which the excess flare emission could not be detected in tlie near infrared bands. Of the various models fitted to the flare data (i.e. optical synchrotron, bound-free emission and free-free emission), bound-free emission seems the most promising.
