While riding past Bentley Newcastle, the local Bentley dealership in Newcastle upon Tyne, earlier today, I noted the following flag flying alongside the UJ in front of the showroom. It is a black rectangular flag in standard dimensions, containing the Bentley logo in its center. The logo is a horizontal ellipse with a white field and a black block letter B in what appears to be an Art Deco font set in its center. The ellipse is flanked by a set of white wings, each flank consisting of three feathers of differing lengths in descending order. The word 'Bentley', the name of the marque, is written in standard white block lettering, with a space between each letter.

Bibby Financial Services is a part of the Bibby Group, which began life as Bibby Line Group Ltd.. The group has diversified greatly in its century and a half of existence, and now includes Bibby Financial Services, which is a general finance and securities company and mortgage lender in the UK. The company seems to use the old Bibby Line flag.

In 1980, The De Lorean Motor Company was established in Belfast, Northern Ireland. The company went into receivership in 1983, after producing a little over 8700 of the unique gull-winged, stainless steel sports cars.
The flag that flew over the De Lorean factory is approximately 4 ft x 10 ft. This photograph, which was offered on the eBay website, is the original flag. The colors are "silver-grey" and black. Beneath the "DMC" logo is "De Lorean Motor Cars Ltd" in black lettering (ZapfHumst DM font).

At Three flags at the Portimăo Marina (Portugal): Gamma Global (GB company), Tivoli Hotels (PT) and host. This was one of the many flag sightings during The Great Vex Safari 2006 Jorge Candeias and I did in southwest Portugal (which included a couple hours with Ron Lahav, too). The British company Gamma Global is described as a "world leader in the global market for the independent distribution of tier one IT products" (http://www.gammaglobal.com/).
The flag, as seen hoisted at the Portimăo Marina in early 2006 (the venue for a company meeting, perhaps?), is a 2:3 white cloth with the company logo/lettering on it. The logo is a orange tiled rectangle with round angles and a likewise white "whole" on it and light blue letters "Gamma" in bold and "global" in a lighter weighter of a sans-serif, round tip typeface.

The British automobile marque Vauxhall has also a flag(oid) in its logo ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vauxhall_Motors ). It a plain flag with an upper case "V", held by the gryphon taken from the arms of Faulke de Breaute. Although the logo was redesigned nine times since the 1920s, the aspect has remained constant.
I show this flagoid in non-descript colors.
