[Corporate flag of the Swire Group] by nathan augustine

It is diagonally divided in quarters (per-saltire) white on top and bottom and red on either side with a blue verticle stripe down the middle. With the stripe it begins to look a little like a union jack.

The Swire Group is a diversified company in Hong Kong, involved in manufacturing, real estate and shipping.

John Swire & Sons Ltd. date from 1875 and the colours were originally associated with The China Navigation Co. Ltd. which was formed in 1872. The Liverpool Chamber of Commerce Chart of 1885 shows the flag in the name of Swire and thereafter sources ascribe it to China Navigation with Swires as managers. At some point Swires have taken over China Navigation and it now operates as one of their subsidiaries with the flag being common to the group. Both companies originated in the U.K. with Swire still being based there, the group being international, and China Navigation are still located in Hong Kong.
