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.
