[Independent Dutch Shippers] by Jarig Bakker, 29 Nov 2003

On this site we find following flags:
I hesitate to list the "Onafhankelijke Nederlandse Schippersvakbond" (Independent Dutch Shippers' Association), Rotterdam, NL: their symbol, however striking, may only be a flagoid. But - the Onafhankelijke Nederlandse
Schippersvakbond's flag looks indeed rather special!

[Schuttevaer flag] by Jarig Bakker, 9 Mar 2005

Jan Mertens reported this link. Koninklijke Schuttevaer (the main Dutch Inland Shipping Society) - orange flag; in top a white crown; in center white "S"; in bottom a wavy blue stripe fimbriated white. - it edits the magazine Schuttevaer, read eagerly by the Mertens family, as dad Mertens was a civil servant working for the Belgian Department of Inland Shipping. Schuttevaer was founded in 1849.
