Scandlines Sĝr. Ferry Fynshav - Boyden

[Flag of Scandlines] by Jarig Bakker

Scandlines operates ferries in the south Baltic sea; I don't know if it is based in only one country, or in all three (or even more) countries of Sweden, Germany, Denmark. The biggest ferry seems to be from Putgarten, on Fehmarn in Schleswig-Holstein, Germany, to Rĝdby, on Lolland island in Denmark (and back of course), taking about 50 minutes. Also the ferry from Heldingĝr in Denmark to Helsingborg in Zweden is run by Scandlines. More information can be found on the Danish homepage of the company http://www.scandlines.dk/DKFront/Front_DK where I also got the logo. The flag is a white field with the company logo in the center.

SFDS af 1991 A/S

The current incarnation of the SFDS appears only to exist to operate the M/S Helge, which flies Red, a White double-bladed axe with details in Blue.  I don't know what happened to the original SFDS, but the building of the  SFDS (still showing the Axe above the door) is hired by the unrelated shipping company T&C Thor Chartering A/S.

[Flag of Christian Andresen (Dampsk. Dania)] by Rob Raeside

Svendsen & Christensen. Dated from 1898 with Lloyds 1904 showing a narrow swallow-tailed long pennant and the normal swallow-tailed version by 1912. At some stage prior to WW2 [my earliest mention is for 1939] they began trading through A/S D/S Vendila and post WW2 this is [basically as they vary the title] the name listed in Lloyds with the flag being shown also under this name by Brown 1958 and Stewart 1963. By 1963 the fleet was no longer and Vendila was acquired by Dannebrog Rederei A/S and presumably traded in their colours until being merged into the associate Weco-Shipping I/S in 1972.

Svenson & Jesperson

[Flag of Svenson & Jesperon] by Jarig Bakker

Svenson & Jesperson, Copenhagen - red flag, divided per white hoist diagonal; at hoist top and fly bottom white 5-pointed star

Jarig Bakker, 20 January 2005

Svenson & Jesperson. Correct name as shown by Brown (Wedge 1926), supported by Lloyds (1911), was Suenson & Jespersen. Lloyds dates them at least 1916 and operating still in 1937. Brown 1929 shows the livery in a change to the name of M.N. Suenson but this may not be correct.
