House flag of SNRH - Image by António Martins, 31 October 2008
Active since 2006, Société Nouvelle de Remorquage du Havre (SNRH, Le Havre New Towing Co.) is - in its own words - a monopoly breaker in that French port:
On October 19th, 2006, after 7 years of legal battles with the Authorities in France, SNRH assisted its first vessel, the Horncap of Hamburg based Horn Linie.
In doing so, SNRH has fulfilled the wishes of their international client base to break the towage monopoly in Le Havre and to offer the same client friendly and competitive service that they receive from the Kotug Group in the ports of Rotterdam, Hamburg and Bremerhaven.
A member of the Kotug group, SNRH operates five tugs.

The house flag of SNRH is shown on several photos of tugs, for instance of RT Stéphanie, RT Pioneer and SD Seine.
The latter photo seems to suggest that the typeface used on the flag is very broad and bold, filling the middle of the flag up to both vertical edges, causing it to look like a blue and white horizontal triband when seen at a distance.
