Artur Reis (Amazonas)

House Flag of Artur Reis (Brazil)by Jorge Candeias

Artur Reis is a person's name. The flag is a green and red vertical bicolor with a white lozenge over all, charged with the initials of the company in black letters, in a fancy font. The flag looks like a merge of the flags of Portugal and Brazil, though I don't know if that's intentional.

Augusto Chaves Riça (Manaus)

House Flag of Augusto Chaves Riça by Jorge Candeias

The flag is yellow, with a star with a big white border. The star seemed to me to be very dark blue, but I might be wrong in this: it might be black instead.

According to Lloyd's Register 1949-1950, operated one vessel of 212 gross tons.

Irmãos Rufino (Manaus)

House Flag of Irmãos Rufinoby Jorge Candeias

Rufino Brothers, Rufino being, obviously, a surname. The flag is a red-white-red triband whith the hoistmost half of the white stripe occupied by a dark blue panel. It's also pretty obvious that the inspiration for this flag came from that of Amazonas.

According to Lloyd's Register 1949-1950, operated one vessel of 460 gross tons.

Empresa Salineira de Navegação Fluvial de Delbão Rodrigues e Cia (Piauí)

House Flag of Empresa Salineira de Navegação Fluvial de Delbão Rodriguesby Jorge Candeias

The first part of the name means something akin to "Saline Enterprise of Fluvial Navigation," where saline means exploitation of salt. Delbão Rodrigues is a personal name. The flag is white with two dark blue triangles in top hoist and bottom hoist, touching each other and going up to half the length, and with a red cross of the Order of Christ vertically centered and shifted to the hoist. A great flag.

House Flag of Santo Antônio de Ocilio Lagoby Jorge Candeias

The flag is quartered per saltire in white and red, with black letters N, E, S and A occupying the quarters.

I would read the letters as ENSA, Empresa de Navegação de Santo Antônio.

SCANBRAS

SCANBRAS, evidently a joint venture among Lloyd Brasileiro, Aliança, and Transroll. Nuesse shows two other variants of this flag, one with SCAN and BRAS in black and the other with the letters L and A in black in place of the SCAN and BRAS logos.

Hans Semper (Amazonas)

House Flag of Hans Semper (Brazil)by Jorge Candeias

Hans Semper is a name, though not a Portuguese one. German, perhaps? Anyway, the flag has nothing to do with the name, and is just a red star on a white field. Might be coincidental, but these are the major colours of the flag of Amazonas.
