Description of the Flag

Thanks Miles Li for mentioning this video ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Jf1MzMcDTo) as a source for old Airline companies' flags. The video shows the flag (at 0:26) of Cunard Eagle Airways. In March 1960, the Cunard Steamship Company, official website: http://www.cunard.com/) bought a 60% shareholding for 30 million of British Eagle Airways, resulting in a change of name to Cunard Eagle Airways. In the wake of several government anti-monopoly practices during the early 1960s, Eagle saw its opportunity to run from an international scheduled passenger and freight carrier to transAtlantic operations expansion.

British Eagle Airways (also British International Airlines) was a major British independent airline that operated from 1948 until it went into liquidation in 1968. It operated scheduled and charter services on a domestic, international and transatlantic basis over the years.

The parent companies of British Eagle Airways and Cunard Eagle Airways were: Eagle Aviation Ltd (1948-1963), British Eagle International Airlines Ltd (1963-1966) and Eagle International Airlines Ltd (1966-1968)."
