Concering the maritime company: NovoShip - base: Russia on which Dov Gutterman located a photo of An actual flag at : http://www.novoship.ru/graphics/spusk-trogir-01.jpg , I deducted from the photo that the Novoship company has business with Croatia, probably even a joint-venture with some croatian company.

Guess what? I don't need the photo to tell you that it might have a "Croatian connection". Trogir is the name of a city in Dalmatia (some 20 km west of Split), and there is a large shipyard there. Looking at the photo and then with a quick glance at the pages, it is obvious that the company built that ship in Trogir shipyard, and the vessel was named after it. Croatia have importatn shipbuilding industry, and many large vessels are build in various shipyards allong Adriatic coast.
Which reminded me - I read in some of the Croatian laws of sea faring that the vessels that bear a name of certain city (or other flag holding entity) that they have right to use the flag of that entity as a jack. Is that a common worldwide practice? Unfortunately, I don't know if Trogir have a modern flag - I am sure that it would have a historical gonfanon or something.
I have found an image of the CoA of Trogir in a newspapers ad (in which the city congratulates the stateshood day on 30-MAY-1998). In reconstruction of it I have made up the colours to what I believe they might be, but be aware that the original image was B/W.
If that would be the new CoA of Trogir (logical, no?), it is probable that the flag is onecoloured with this CoA in the middle.

Trogir - The coat of arms of Trogir is: Azure, a Fort with a Bell-tower Argent on the base barry wavy of the two; a Trailling Mullet Or in canton and in the doors of the fort standing the patron-saint of the city. The arms are probably modernization of some older pattern. The flag is white with the CoA in the middle. One should note that the colours of the CoA are my reconstuction from description and the black and white colour in the source below. The colouring of the patron siant is specifically unconfirmed.
Source for CoA: City of Trogir ad in: Vjesnik, Zagreb, 29. svibnja 1998. str 21.
