Oeltrans AG

Another German firm about which little is known, but as they have a flag... To begin with, I am not certain whether this firm is a subsidiary of the Swiss Oeltrans AG (or "oeltrans") at Interlaken, as the logo and company colours are quite different.  And the name is a rather general one ('oiltrans').

In any case there is an "Oeltrans Befrachtungsgesellschaft (freighting company) mbH" in Hamburg maintaining a modest web presence.
With three other firms (Tankfracht, Max Sötje, and QS-Management), Oeltrans operates 64 tanker vessels active in Germany, the Netherlands, and the Amsterdam-Rotterdam-Antwerp harbour area. Various kinds of mineral oil are shipped.

The logo on above website is also found on a flag, offered on German eBay (end date 9 June 2006, item no. 6286196904). On the lower half of a green field is placed the company logo consisting of the name in white lower case letters, the 'e' of which is surrounded by a black ring (name of font unknown to me).

Max Sötje Tankschiffahrt GmbH - Together with QS-Management and Tankfracht GmbH the company belongs to Oeltrans-Befrachtungsgesellschaft mbH and is located in Moers. For further information click
It is a plain dark blue flag with a white S in its centre, which is very similar to the logo of Columbian singer Shakira Mebarak (whose play is sometimes even more exciting than that of the "Mannschaft".).
