[Satrans (Germany)]

Basically an orange-light green-orange horizontal triband. A blue stripe covers the orange stripes in the lower hoist and upper fly, creating an 'S' in the center.

[Scandinavian East Africa Line (Germany)]

Spanish fess of red-white-red with blue letters 'SEAL' in the central stripes, separated by small blue discs.

[Schiffahrtskontor tom Wörden (Germany)]

Quartered per saltire, blue in the top and bottom and white at the hoist and fly, with a red 't' on the hoist field and a red 'W' on the fly field.

[Schiffahrts und Befrachtungs Kontor Marker GmbH (Germany)]
by Thanh Tâm Lê

White with two narrow yellow horizontal bars running near the top and the bottom of the flag and a blue 'M' shifted to the hoist. The base of the 'M' extends to the hoist and to the fly, thus forming another horizontal stripe.

Jorge Candeias, c. March 1999

Schult & Bruns

[Schult & Bruns (Germany)]
by Jorge Candeias

Gold over blue bicolour with white lettering outlined in black "S&B" over all.

Jorge Candeias, 18 March 1999

Stuwe & Co.

[Stuwe & Co. (Germany)]
by Jorge Candeias

White with narrow dark blue horizontal stripes along the top and bottom and a lozengy logo centered. The logo consists of a light blue square lozenge and triangles in dark blue, white, dark blue, light blue (top row) and in reverse order (bottom row). In the lozenge, a graphical element in dark blue and white creates the interconnected letters 'S' and 'L'.

Jorge Candeias, 12 March 1999

Transport & Service GMBH & Co.

[Transport and Service GmbH (Germany)]
by Jorge Candeias

White with two narrow horizontal stripes at the bottom in blue and orange. The logo is centered on the white and consists of the letters 'T' and 'S' united by a wavy line. I am not sure that the logo is like I depicted it. It was in the original image, but the flag there was artistically rendered, and it could have caused distortions in the logo.

Jorge Candeias, 26 February 1999

TransRussia Express

[TransRussia Express (Germany)]
by Jorge Candeias

Horizontal stripes in dark blue, white, red and black. A mixture of the Russian colours with those of Poseidon, the mother company.

Jorge Candeias, 16 March 1999

Unterweser Reederei GmbH

[Unterweser Reederei GmbH (Germany)]
by Jorge Candeias

I saw a photo of the German ship Weser. Painted on the board was a [divided saltirewise] blue-red flag with white letters URAG. Source: German magazine Guten Tag, 1989.

Victor Lomantsov, 8 February 2001

This must be a West German ship. Interesting to see a West German company using 'typical' East German colors.

Volker Moerbitz Keith, 8 February 2001


[Wessels (Germany)]
by Jorge Candeias

Blue with white inscription "WESSELS" in italic. The 'W', however, is transformed into a navigating ship through its shape, a wavy line below and light blue additions of several parts typical of cargo ships.

Jorge Candeias, 10 February 1999

Wilhelm E.F. Schmidt GmbH

[Wilhelm E.F. Schmidt GmbH (Germany)]
by Jorge Candeias

White with a blue horizontal stripe near the top and a red horizontal stripe near the bottom. In the center, the letters 'SCH' in black. The original image was too small to be sure, but it looks like the red stripe is about twice as wide as the blue one.

Jorge Candeias, 22 March 1999
