My impression of the flag in Josef's site is that the blue is darker. The company is a P&O subsidiary so that a shade of royal blue seems likely.

Ben Line Agencies

[Ben Line Agencies flag]
by Jorge Candeias

White with a thick red border and a black anchor.
Jorge Candeias,, 27 March 2001

The flag is that of the British company William Thomson & Co. who date from 1820 and operated mainly through Ben Line Steamers Ltd. with fleet names usually starting with "Ben". The current operations are under Ben Line Group Ltd., still based in Edinburgh. The anchor is dark blue although the origin of this image comes apparently from the Hong Kong agency company formed in 1987 and their website shows it as black, I would think probably in error. Griffin 1895 shows a black foul anchor which would seem incorrect on two counts. A variation was used by Ben Line Containers Ltd. who were formed in 1972 as a joint venture with Ellermans, the anchor being replaced by a black arrow bent into 3 sides (like the ACT design] with that to fly being empty and within this the black letters "BLC". Ellermans were later bought out and presumably the company was absorbed back into the group.
