HADAG is a shipping company in Hamburg, which was established in 1888. Until 1983 the company ran the cruiseliner "ASTOR" But nowadays it is a mere passenger-transport company and is also running the harbour-ferries under the roof of Hamburgs public transport HVV. As times were changing the volume of passengers declined from 21,300,000 in 1958 down to less than 2,000,000 passengers in 1989. Today the company has 85 employees and runs 19 ships on 6 branch-lines.
This flag was used from 1969 to about 1980.

HADAG Cruise line: The flag is divided by saltire. The colours are green (top and bottom) and white (hoist and fly). The centre is superimposed by a red shield with a narrow white tressure and white capital "HA" over "D" over "AG".
According to companies own flagchart this is the company-flag used between 1969 and 1980. I also saw an old photo, showing a very big flag hoisted upon the Landungsbrücken building in Hamburgs harbour area.
According to KLUDAS this is the flag of HADAG-Cruise line, which no longer exists.
