Silja Line

[Silja Line] by Al Fisher

A consortium of Finska Angfartygs A/B, Rederi A/B Bore and Rederi A/B Svea. According to Lloyds Silja Line O/Y was formed in 1957 and appears in the early days as Siljavarustamo-A/B Siljarederiet O/Y and then Siljavarustamo-A/B Siljarederiet O/Y. From the cap badges in the Collectors Corner site it seems that the early flag was of conventional mode of white and a very broad blue horizontal band bearing a white cross throughout in turn surmounted by an undefined white circle charged with a blue "S"

[Silja Line] by Jarig Bakker

From Brown 1995 showing the, what I take is, seal head but as a black outline on white and facing the hoist which fits in with the funnel markings. A possibility for Al's flag, failing an actual sighting to disprove it, is that it is likely to be for use as a shore flag only, it being a common ploy for those with names on them to be so used.
