The same flag captioned 'Nordfriesische Reederei GmbH Rendsburg' is shown at the Biedekarken site, second page (the one with yellow or orange funnels), eleventh row, last flag.
To be found under the name 'Zerssen & Co., Rendsburg' in the on-line 1912 Lloyds Flags & Funnels as No. 325.
The company still exists (founded 1839): see here.
The Zerssen & Citti Ship Service GmbH (supplier) has a flag of its own.

German brothers again – their website being in the works, we would not normally suspect the existence of a house flag: In any event it sadly no longer flies on any vessel. Founded in 1952, the company – still a family business – started extracting and transforming pumice stone for building and is now a major supplier of light concrete.  It is established at Kruft, a small town to the W. of Coblentz and until recently operated five vessels – carrying bulk goods for construction, of course – one of which is shown on this ‘Binnenvaart’ page, namely ‘Moselland’, flying the flag on the bow. See also the drawing: divided per saltire, yellow (left and right) and blue (top and base), black initials ‘G’ and ‘Z’ (no serifs) on the yellow segments.  (The logo on the homepage place holder is different.)  ‘Rheinland’ on the
‘Binnenschiffe’ site (lists five vessels in all), first clickable photo showing the flag.
The time has come for yet another German eBay offer, this time no. 320007199825 (end 21 July 2006) put up by “hadarman”.   Dimensions given as 118 cm x 198 cm, possibly polyester, and made by Fahnen-Herold (Wuppertal, jm).  Came with one page of maintenance advice.
