Formed in 1921 using a blue flag with a white somewhat squashed "O" going by the Collectors Corner website cap badge which records it in the name of Verkebäcks Ångfartygs A/B which was operated by Olsson. After he died in 1931 this company was inherited by his son Ruben [or Reuben] who continued to use the flag operating under his own name though US Navy 1961 [8] still records it under his father's company.
