P.T. Bahari Haluan Samudera [P.T. Bahari Haluan Samudera] located by Jorge Candeias

Horizontally striped in blue-white-blue-white-blue, in proportions approximately 2:3:1:3:2 with the initials "BHS" along the center, over the central blue stripe and part of the white ones, in dark red.

P.T. Djakarta Lloyd

[P.T. Djakarta Lloyd] by Ivan Sache

PT Djakarta Lloyd (Jakarta, Indonesia) - red-white-red with red DL -   I was wondering about the use of the "Lloyd" and is this the reason for using the red-white-red flag?

I think that there may be some relationship with Nedlloyd, formerly Rotterdamsche Lloyd, which had a flag chequy red and white with a blue block in the center. Djakarta Lloyd's flag is red-white-red with red letters DL in the center of the white stripe (the blue color may have been removed to associate it more with the Indonesian flag (and less with the Dutch one)). But that's only a guess.

The stylized letters GL form the silhouette of a ship sailing towards the hoist of the flag.

 P.T. Pelayaran Nasional Indonesia

[P.T. Pelayaran Nasional Indonesia] by Ivan Sache

The flag of P.T. Pelayaran Nasional Indonesia (The National Indonesian Shipping Company), in short Pelni, is quartered red and white with a white star in the middle of the first quarter. The company is incorporated in Jakarta, the capital city of Indonesia. The colours of the flag are evidently taken from the national flag.
