House flag of Costamare - Image by Ivan Sache, 6 November 2009
Costamare Shipping was incorporated in Panama in 1975 by Captain Vassilis Kostantakopoulos, still owning the company and nicknamed "The Containers' King". Costamare indeed operates a huge fleet of some 60 vessels, one of the largest in size and capacity container ships fleets in the world.
The company is based in Paleo Faliro, Attiki.

The house flag of Costamare, as shown by Josef Nuesse, is a triangular orange pennant with a golden fringe and a red stylized "C", the emblem of the company. This must be a table flag rather than a flag hoisted on boats.
Several Costamare boats have a rectangular yellow flag with the red "C" painted on the hull, below the ship name. This would make a more plausible house flag, which has yet to be documented.
