[EASL new flag] by Jarig Bakker, 15 Mar 2004
used 1968-1980 See also:

Eastern Africa National Shipping Line flag (new version)

In 1968 the diamond and initials at the center of the design were replaced by a blue ball which contained the national emblems of each country, and the initials of the company round its border. In practice, these emblems, the Crested Crane of Uganda, The Torch of Tanzania, The Shield of Kenya and the Yellow Eagle of Zambia, seem to be reserved for the houseflag, for even those ships owned by the company have only a plain blue ball on the funnel marking.
