Bischoff Gruppe

[Bischoff Gruppe (Shipping Company, Germany)] image by Jorge Candeias, 7 Feb 1999

White with dark red triangles above and below, relatively narrow, linked by a central disc also dark red. At the hoist and at the fly, the black letters "B" and "C", respectively; on the disc the sign "&" in white.
Jorge Candeias, 7 Feb 1999

Bischoff Gruppe appears to have originated as Bremer Reederei Bruno Bischoff & Co. GmbH with a couple of subsequent variations noted in Lloyds before becoming Bruno Bischoff Reederei Gmbh & Co. K.G. in 1981. By the late 1990s it had become a subsidiary of the Icelandic company Samskip H/F and this appears to have coincided with their dropping the naming system of their vessels which previously all had the 1st name of "Bremer".
