'J.A. Reinecke, Hamburg' according to the site of the firm, a shipping agency.

Wolters' See und Seefahrt (1968) has: J.A. Reinecke, Hamburg, and J.A. Reinecke GmbH., Bremen (and same flag).

J.A.Reinecke (variant) - The company used a red flag with a white rhomb with black serifed capital letters "JR".
(note: rhomb doesn't touch the edges)

My link to the shipping agency of the same name leads to a flag having a blue field and red initials (sans-serif).
The message on the site is rather alarming (my translation): "Since 1 January 2007 J.A. Reinicke shipping agency does no longer represent Minoan Lines, Grandi Navi Veloci and Norfolk Lines". Company seat is Bargteheide, a small place between Hamburg and Lübeck.
Biedekarken's site (still) shows the red flag.
The word "variant" in Klaus-Michael's suggests the red flag may have been an earlier version; on the other hand the current blue one may be about to be struck.
