White with a dark blue lozenge and a white
"D" in the lozenge.
Jorge Candeias, 17 Feb 1999
Devitt and Moore ran a fleet of about 20 sailing ships in the wool trade to Australia in the 1800s and early 1900s. In the 1920s they got rid of the ships and founded The Nautical College Pangbourne which, along with the Conway and Worcester, provided cadet training for the MN, RNR and direct entry to the RN College, Dartmouth. The design was wine red and deep blue alternate quarters with a white rectangle (woolsack?) centred in the flag.

This flag is illustrated in Carr (1961), Flags of the World, and in Barraclough (1971), Flags of the World.
