The Houseflag of FMG Flota Mercante Grancolumbiana S.A., can be seen at Josef Nuesse site.
Dov Gutterman, 25 June 2001
Flota Mercante Grancolombiana S.A. was formed in 1947. Brown (1958) shows a different version reversing the colours to white charged with a small blue pennant with a slightly curved hoist. The finer detail is not shown, no doubt due to the size of the image. All subsequent sources show the Josef Nuesse site flag with more success as to the correct portrayal and
colouring. The emblem is a light brown ships wheel enclosing black bearing a map of Venezuela (yellow), Colombia (blue) and Ecuador (red) with around the edge of this circle the white legend "FLOTA MERCANTE GRANCOLOMBIANA" with 3 small white stars placed at the bottom completing the legend circle.
