Neusser Kies- und Sandbaggerei

[Neusser Kies- und Sandbaggerei] image by Eugene Ipavec, 6 Aug 2008

A nice find in „Flaggem auf dem Rhein“ (p. 74) was ‚Neusser Kies- and Sandbaggerei GmbH’ meaning, literally, a gravel and sand dredging company established at Neuss, a town situated on the Rhine directly opposite Düsseldorf. This flag reminds of  Hülskens and Elskes, as well as the general pattern of the house flag: divided per saltire (blue upper and lowermost, white left and right) with a black cogwheel in the centre enclosing a red initial.
In all, four initials were treated: ‘H’, ‘B’, ‘K’, and ‘E’ (photographic evidence of ‘H’ only).  The Neuss company, obviously related to the others, has a ‘N’ within the cogwheel shape.
Although the Hülskens homepage gives a nice overview of its gravel and sand dredging activities, NKuS is not mentioned and I have not found any further trace - but in 1952, at least, the flag was still flying!
