[Flag of Christian Andresen (Dampsk. Dania)] by Ivan Sache

Chr. Andresen. Lloyds 1904 shows 3 companies having the same flag with their funnels only differentiating by the letters on the bands. They comprised V. Greibe operating Dampskibs "Jylland", J. Lauritzen operating Damskibs "Vesterhavet" and Christian Andresen operating Damskibs "Dania". The only obvious connection is that they are all shown based in Esjberg. The first named seems to have been of very short duration but the others relocated Copenhagen and around the 1930s (Brown 1934 shows the change although Talbot-Booth does not do so until the 1940s) Andresen changed their flag to red with a narrow white bend bearing a red "D". After WW2 it is shown as A.R. & C.R. Andresen but seems to have gone out of business around the end of the 1950s.

H.C.C. Christensen

[Flag of H.C.C. Christensen] by Neale Rosanoski

H.C.C. Christensen. The company as shown by Brown (Wedge 1926) is H.C. Christensen with the "M" presumably coming from the port of Marstal, and the flag is white with the red letters "H.C.C." over "M". It is also shown by Lloyds (1912) though Talbot-Booth (1936) in his WW2 books brings in an association with Alfr. Petersen of Marstal indicating that he may have become owner or operator for what he shows as A/S H.C. Christensens Dampskibsselskab, the flag being still shown though without a dot after the "M".

Chr. Jensen A/S

[Flag of Chr. Jensen A/S] by Ivan Sache, 27 November 2003

Chr. Jensen is a chartering and ship agency, with offices in Copenhagen, Aarhus, Moscow, St. Petersburg, Tallinn and Riga. The flag is white with a red cross pattee, a black C in upper hoist and a black J in lower hoist. Company website: http://www.chrjensen.dk/
Ivan Sache, 27 November 2003

Chr. Jensen A/S. It seems that a change has been made as the company site now shows a flag logo without letters, just the cross paty. Incidentally Lloyds 1912 shows the letters as "C." and "J." and being blue (and domiciles as St. Petersburg in line with the company information that they originated in Russia) but whether this is correct with a subsequent change to the black letters shown here, as well as by Talbot-Booth 1942 and 1944, and Brown 1958, is a moot point.

C.K. Hansen

[Flag of C.K. Hansen]  by Phil Nelson, 24 June 2000

based on Stewart and Styring's Flags, Funnels and Hull Colours, 1963

C.K. Hansen ("Dannnebrog" S.S. Co.), Copenhagen: the split Dannebrog on a blue background, but without interrupting the swallowtail by a short right piece ending the white cross. (Probably a mistake in detail.)
Jan Mertens, 11 December 2003

C.K. Hansen. A shipbroking firm, they were managing owners of A/S D/S Dannebrog which they formed in 1883. A reorganization in 1967 saw them split and in 1970 the shipping company changed its name to Dannebrog Rederi A/S under which it still operates using this flag.
Neale Rosanoski, 27 April 2004

C.K. Hansen. Jan is quite right about the squaring of the cross point of the Dannebrog. All sources, apart from Stewart, so show it.

Dampskibselsskabet af 1912 a/s

[Flag of A.P. M&oslashller (Maersk Line)]  by Michael Wilson

A painting in the Søfart museum in Troense shows the pennant of Dampskibselsskabet af 1912 a/s, Copenhagen: Blue with white 7 pointed star; heptagram 2 (meaning, "to the second point", I expect.)
Peter Hans van den Muijzenberg, 27 August 2001

Dampskibsselskabet af 1912 A/S. The flag is that of A.P. Møller, this being one of the two companies which formed the nucleus of this group.

Dampskibs-Aktieselskabet Progress (Copenhagen)

[Flag of Dampskibs-Aktieselskabet Progress] by Ivan Sache, based on Joseph Nüsse website

White flag with a red seven-pointed star in the middle, an elongated and symmetrical Danish national flag placed along the upper edge of the flag, and a red stripe charged with progress in white placed along the lower edge of the flag. I guess this is an other Maersk-related company.
Ivan Sache, 16 November 2002

No, not Maersk. Besides, the company seems to have gone belly-up in the summer of 2000. There was talk of a management buy-out, but that seems to have failed.
Ole Andersen, 16 November 2002

Dampskibs-Aktieselskabet Progress (Copenhagen). Assuming that this is the company now known as D/S Progress, it is still shown by Lloyds operating through Progress Ugland Ltd. which is a joint venture with Ugland International Holdings plc, formed around 1999. Whether the flag is used by this concern is unknown. D/S Progress is shown as being formed 1904 and again by presumption it is the company [as D/S A/S Progress] which was operated by Marius Nielsen & Söhn and used their flag as shown elsewhere on this page. This association seems to have altered around 1960 when O. Amsinck are shown as the operators, from the same address. By the early 1970s Amsinck are no longer mentioned and D/S A/S Progress seem to have ceased as shipowners around the latter 1980s, next being traced as D/S Progress in the late 1990s. Nothing is known of when the flag shown here was adopted.

Dampskibselskabet "Norden" (Copenhagen)

[Flag of Dampskibselskabet "Norden"] by Ivan Sache, based on Joseph Nüsse website

Red flag with a white seven-pointed star. This is the Maersk star, is not it? We show a similar flag for P. Brown Jun. & Co.
Ivan Sache, 16 November 2002

No, Norden was established in 1871, the first Maersk company (D/S Svendborg) is from 1904.
Ole Andersen, 16 November 2002

The website at http://www.ds-norden.com/ reports Dampskibsselskabet NORDEN AS (Copenhagen, Denmark) - blue-white-red-white-blue horizontal (~3:1:6:1:3) with 8 points star on the red stripe.
Dov Gutterman, 17 October 2003

Dampskibselskabet "Norden". Peter Brown, followed by P. Brown Jnr & Co., were operators at least, possibly even owners, although they are not mentioned by Lloyds from the 1960s. Sources usually showed both names but Stewart (1953) has only shown that of Brown.
Neale Rosanoski, 27 April 2004

Dampskibselskabet "Norden" (Copenhagen). I checked the company website to find the flag described by Dov but the nearest seems to be their addition to the letter "E" in their name heading of the red flag with star which could be construed to represent a multi banded flag except the top and bottom would be black not blue. The site also shows the plain flag with star flying over their building on the history page so I think that the name logo is in fact misleading and in fact it looks more like the funnel except that it does not show the star i.e. black with a red band edged by two narrow white bands. My guess is that they have combined the two in order to make their logo.

Danena A/S

[Flag of Danena A/S] by Ivan Sache, 27 November 2003

Danena AS (Aarhus, Denmark) - Swallowtail, red, two thin white stripes and bold white N.
http://www.danena.dk/
Dov Gutterman
, 17 October 2003

The company is based in Aarhus. It is a shipping and ship-owning company specialized in dredging in the Baltic, North Sea and Danish waters. The flag is swallow- tailed, red with two thin white stripes near the top and the bottom of the flag and a white N in the middle.
Ivan Sache
, 27 November 2003

Danena A/S. The "N" probably refers to Ejnar Nygaard who up to the end of the 1980s was shown by Lloyds as the manager at the same address as they still use.

Store Nordiske Telegraf-Selsab, Copenhagen - red flag, white Maltese cross.
Source: Brown's Flags and Funnels (Wedge 1926)
Jarig Bakker, 20 January 2005

Store Nordiske Telegrafselskab was quite a successful company in its day. In periods, it took care of parts of the Danish foreign policy towards Russia. The company has changed quite a lot since. The core of the company is now GN Great Nordic (at http://www.gn.dk , but the cable and telegraph activities are in GN Great Northern Telegraph Company.
Ole Andersen, 20 June 2001

A different flag is shown at Det Store Nordiske Telegraf-Selskab A/S as shown in Flaggenbuch (1939)
