[Great Eastern Shipping Co. Ltd] by Rob Raeside

Josef's flag varies from those shown by shipping sources which may indicate changes along the way. The colours are agreed to by the 1966 Liverpool Journal of Commerce sheet but it shows the letters on a white diamond. In support of this version is the fact that it appears as a panel on the funnel as confirmed by photos.

On the other hand Brown 1995 changes the red to orange and reverses the direction of the dividing line to upper hoist to lower fly, again showing a [smaller] white diamond and blue lettering.

[Great Eastern Shipping Co. Ltd] by Rob Raeside

A subsidiary was formed in the UK at the beginning of the 1990s as The Great Eastern Shipping Co. London Ltd. with Brown 1995 showing their flag as also a diagonal biband of orange and green, this time divided from lower hoist to upper flag, with overall a back "G".

India Steamship Co. Ltd. For some reason several sources, including the latest Browns, show the flag with the point downwards, which is even more surprising when their funnel images, where the flag [sic] appears as a band, in all cases is shown with the point upwards.
