Blue with a white lozenge centered and a bold blue "H" in the center of the lozenge. The original picture had not only this, but also a flag in reverse colours painted on a truck. This could be a used variation.
Jorge Candeias, 18 March 1999


Shipping operations appear to have been through O/Y Werner Hacklin which was noted in Lloyds until about 1960 with O/Y Hacklin Ltd. now not involved directly in shipowning or operating. The 1st flag of blue with the white diamond bearing the blue "H", which seems to be the main flag and appears on their website, is shown by Brown 1951 (somewhat incorrectly with a smaller diamond) and was the band on their funnels. The other 2 flags possibly relate to their other activities or may be just logos.

Another image at the Oy Hacklin website a simple blue italicized letter "H" within a white diamond lozenge upon a blue field. Operations: road and sea transportation, stevedoring and storage.

From their corporate information:

Hacklin - established in 1908

28 December 1908 is considered the date on which the Hacklin Group was founded. On that date Werner Hacklin, a sailing ship stevedore from Reposaari, and his elder brother signed a contract to start stevedoring in the Meri-Pori area. Having started in Reposaari, operations were gradually transferred to the port of Mäntyluoto.
