This one is a triangular flag, red, with a
black triangular stripe along the top and a yellow
disc charged with a red something vaguely looking
like a bear.

Iíve a copy of their brochure in front of me ó
the animal is a lion, a rather chubby one granted,
but a lion all the same.

Dark blue with a white oval centered
bordered in a weird shade of purple/brown
and charged with the sillouette of a
camel facing the hoist in dark gold.

The (a?) historical flag of this company:
White with an outline of a camel centered and
facing the fly and the initials "CL&Co" below
the camel, all in red.

There was another flag for this shipbuilding company in the Observer Book of Flags [eva59], with following text:
Many shipbuilding companies also have their own House Flags. Such a flag is displayed, along with that of the prospective owners, while a vessel is being launched. It may also be flown during her trials, to be replaced, as soon as these are satisfactorily completed, by that of the owners to signify that she has changed hands. ... that of Cammell Laird and Co. is an amusing example of punning heraldry.Jarig Bakker, 01 Mar 1999
