“Yellow, certainly bearing the stylized and three-dimensional initial
‘S’ found on the company site, rendered in white with very thin black holding
lines. Of the blue forms enclosing the ‘S’ I am not so sure.”
While the photos linked to no longer seem to be available, above mentioned picture already gave some idea. Much better in this respect however is the house flag in pennant form.
The holding lines are blue rather than black (at least here) and the “forms” recall the bow-and-stern shape of the logo as it appeared on the yellow flag version.

As the moment Van der Sluijs, along with Vopak Barging Europe, is in
the process of merging with Interstream
Barging: “The organisation will start to operate as one company as
of 1 July 2008. The merger of Interstream Barging with Vopak Barging
Europe and Van der Sluijs Tankrederij will be in the form of an acquisition
of all of Vopak Barging Europe's shares as well as the shares of Van der
Sluijs Tankrederij by Interstream Barging and has no consequences for the
employees of either organisation. After the integration, Interstream
Barging will have a fleet of 95 inland barges available and will, therefore,
be one of the largest inland tanker transporters in north-western Europe.”
