I'm not sure about the caption *and* the details of the flag. For certain, it's only that that flag is red with a white lozenge, black letters inside the lozenge and in the two corners of the top. But practically all letters are uncertain. In the lozenge, I'm pretty confident that the two first ones are a J and an F, but that confidence vanishes when we begin talking about the last one. I suppose it's an H, but that's it.
Regarding the letters at the top, they are all very far from being certain. Some coincidences, though, have led me to believe them to be the initials of this company, and those are, according to the caption, "SDG".
And SDG is the only thing understandable in that caption. The first word is totally blurred, the second might have some similarities with "Dusgha" and the third might be "Ges", which is some sort of abbreviation. And that's it.

Surely this is the Stettiner Dampfschiffs-Gesellschaft J.F. Braeunlich - see here (company history *passim*): House flag in black and white photo on this page, left one in eleventh row here - plus large image in colour (but no 'additional' letters) top of this page, whereas here we see a coloured post card showing a flag with 'additional' letters on this webpage.
On this Lloyd 1912 page it's No. 1333 aka 'Stettiner Dampfschiffs Gesellschaft J.F. Braeunlich, G.m.b.H., Stettin'. The letters in the upper corners are there allright, they simply complete the J.F.B. company initials. This originally German company had a long life (see site mentioned in previous message) but, as we know, changed countries.
