Safmarine

[Safmarine houseflag] by Jorge Candeias, 3 Feb 2002

A white burgee with a red scandinavian cross fimbriated in black, after image at this site, reported by Dov Gutterman, 12 Feb 1999
Jorge Candeias, 20 Feb 1999

It seems as though both Dov Gutterman and Jorge Candeias have misread the Safmarine flag it is very small on the shipping
line's website. It is an orange Scandinavian cross, fimbriated in blue since the company was largely Government-owned, it was expected to reflect the orange, white and blue so beloved of the National Party government.
The company has largely been sold off, although I'm not sure how the ownership is currently structured.
