Rijnaarde new flag

On the company website a new logo appears: Two stylized light blue waves are placed under part of the dark blue name “RIJNAARDE”: they end after the double “AA” of which the initials are shown without horizontal stem and appear, fimbriated, against a light blue disk rising from said waves.
As in the former house flag the logo is placed on a yellow field: image after a current eBay offer no. 290302636037 (ends 12 Apr 2008) put up by “shipflag”.  Item said to be new and unused, dimensions given as 1.00 m x 1.50 m.

Rijnaarde

Rijnaarde BV is a young firm – founded 2003 – active in inland and maritime freighting, located at Beuningen which is situated immediately to the West of Nijmegen, almost on the River Waal (as the Rhine is called once it has crossed the Dutch-German border).  Company website.

Two experienced owners – names not given, nor those of the firm they once worked for and finally took over – lead Rijnaarde.  In an area covering the Benelux countries, France, Germany, and Switzerland, shipments are arranged for a fleet of 25 private barges.  In addition there are freighting services concerning sea-going transport and transhipments.   Lastly, Rijnaarde is a construction material supplier.

Above shipments consist of bulk goods, of which wood and sand, gravel and the like are highlighted on the site.  Intermodal transport (seamless integration of different means of transportation) is very important to Rijnaarde.

The photos (“Foto’s”) on the site are very instructive – as they should be – and the first one very fittingly shows the house flag: yellow, bearing the firm’s logo: a light blue disk partially covered by three dark blue waves – frimbriated white – and large dark blue letters ‘RIJNAARDE’ to the right of it.  Logo and name cover about one fourth of the flag’s surface and they seem to be placed on the flag’s horizontal median line instead of in the centre.
(A few other pictures also show this flag, and Amer Shipping makes a guest appearance.).
