Baltship

[Flag of Baltship] image located by Jan Mertens, 1 December 2009

Baltship, a Danish based freight forwarding company, maintains a website (in English) at http://www.baltship.dk. Founded in 1997 and based at Aarhus, this company has subsidiaries at Copenhagen, Riga (Latvia), and - as Graziosi-Baltship, partly owned - at Sydney (Australia), plus supplementary offices elsewhere. Baltship specializes in international freighting, maritime chartering (containers or bulk), project handling, and other logistic activities.

The dark blue company logo is placed on a white flag, seen here (actually the charges look almost black): http://www.baltship.dk/index.php?id=7. We see the globe in Mollweide projection above the firmís name; in the flag, there is a thick horizontal stripe between the two.

Basse & Co.

based on Stewart and Styring's Flags, Funnels and Hull Colours, 1963

Basse & Co. Prior to WW2 shown as T. Basse, afterwards as Basse & Co. and finally A.H Basse being liquidated in 1978. The "H" probably relates to D/S Hetland A/S under which they seem to have originally operated.

P Brown Jr. This seems to be another case of sources showing a livery in the name of the operators instead of the actual company. In this case, as shown by Lloyds 1904 and 1912, the correct company is Det Helsingorske Dampskibsselskab.

We have Det Helsingorske Dampskibsselskab, red field bearing a white square bearing a black five-pointed star. And we have P.Brown, Jr., red field bearing a white square bearing a blue five-pointed star. Now the entries suggest there's a connection, Lloyds 1912 [llo12] apparently gives that connection explicitly, but from the pages, I'm not quite sure what that connection is. Does anyone have that Lloyds handy, or does anyone otherwise know how these fit together?

P. Brown Jun. & Co.

[Flag of P. Brown Jun. & Co.] image by Ivan Sache, based on Joseph Nüsse website

based on Stewart and Styring's Flags, Funnels and Hull Colours, 1963

P. Brown Jun. & Co. Refer my comments for Dampskibselskabet "Norden" for this appears to be their flag. Brown was an operator for other companies as well which also had their own flags, one of which has been shown under the name of the operator. They go back to 1893, originally as Peter Brown, and Lloyds 1912 does show under P. Brown Jnr & Co. a red flag with a white "B" which would appear to actually be theirs.
