Funnels vs. house flags

I wander why these distinctive funnel patterns doesn’t show on the house flags.
António Martins, 17 Oct 1999

Among the shipping lines covered in the 1934 flag article in National Geographic magazine [gsh34],

  • some had funnel markings which very close resembled their house flags,
  • some had funnel markings which had only a general similarity to their house flags and
  • some had funnel markings which had nothing in common with their house flags.
Edward Smith, 19 Oct 1999
