Orion Rederierne A/S (Copenhagen)

[Flag of Orion Rederierne A/S] by Ivan Sache, based on Joseph Nüsse website

White flag with a big red O in the middle and a blue vertical stripe placed along the hoist, charged with a representation of the constellation of Orion in white. Orion was a giant hunter who offended the goddess Artemis. As a punishment, she killed him and changed him into a constellation. The three stars placed in diagonal in the middle of the constellation are known as Orion's Belt.

Ostasiatiske Kompagni (East Asia Company)

[Flag of Ostasiatiske Kompagni (East Asia Company)] by Jarig Bakker, based on the British National Maritime Museum

The website of the National Maritime Museum describes the house flag of "the house flag of Ostasiatiske Kompagni A/S Det, Copenhagen. A white flag with a blue anchor placed diagonally and fouled by a chain and the letters 'O/. K.' below. The flag is made of a wool and synthetic fibre bunting. It has a cotton hoist and is machine sewn. The design is printed.

Ostasiatiske Kompagni A/S, Copenhagen: white, a blue fouled anchor placed in a diagonal position (the flukes toward lower right), in the left lower corner the blue letters ØK. Two versions are shown on Josef Nüsse's site under 'Flags', 'Danish Shipping Companies', 'Seite 6': first, the flag with the letters nearer the anchor, which is bigger and has a chain rather than a cable, second, said flag in a split Dannebrog's upper hoist corner and golden letters D.Ø.K. in the cross's centre, horizontally arranged.

Östasiatiske Kompagni. The 2nd flag mentioned by Jan has the company house flag in the canton flying from a pole which is angled bendwise. This differs from that shown in "Das große flaggenbuch" which only has a panel of the flag and is defined as used by sailing vessels in overseas service. I suspect it may have been used as an Ensign including for motor vessels judging by an illustration of the "Selandia" 1912 in "Merchant Ships of the World in colour 1910-1929" by Laurence Dunn which has the houseflag flying from the mainmast and what seems to be this 2nd flag as the Ensign from the stern.

P. Brown Jun. & Co.

[Flag of P. Brown Jun. & Co.] by Ivan Sache, based on Joseph Nüsse website

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

P. Brown Jun. & Co. Refer my comments for Dampskibselskabet "Norden" for this appears to be their flag. Brown was an operator for other companies as well which also had their own flags, one of which has been shown under the name of the operator. They go back to 1893, originally as Peter Brown, and Lloyds 1912 does show under P. Brown Jnr & Co. a red flag with a white "B" which would appear to actually be theirs.
