Here is the new symbol of the shipping company which has helped ensure Iceland's independence: Eimskipafjelag Íslands, which was founded 17 January 1914, after the first president talked about its necessity with some local businessmen. The old symbol was used from the beginning but has not been displayed from around the WW2.
From their press release: At the beginning of next year a new chapter in the
history of Eimskip will begin. Under its A new organization chart, the Eimskip
ehf. transportation company will be one of three independent subsidiaries of
the parent company, The Iceland Steamship Company Ltd. The role of the Eimskip
transport company will continue to be the supplier of choice of comprehensive
transportation and logistic services, guided by the principles of
professionalism and responsibility. Eimskip will build on three core values:
achievement, cooperation and trust.
