[Knutsen OAS flag] contributed by Neale Rosanoski

The original flag of the founder Knut Knutsen was white with a large black "K". The current flag probably dates from around 1984 when the Knutsen family sold out but whether it is the version shown here is open to doubt. This has been taken from the logo on the company site, though the shade of blue appears to be dark, but according to Brown 1995 the flag places this logo onto a normal white rectangle although this may be incorrect in that the logo is shown as a square on the website whereas the flag version turns it into a rectangle. It seems definitely wrong in that the blue bands in the lower half are not shown narrowing in descending scale as with the logo.

Leif Hoegh & Co.

[Houseflag of Leif Hoegh & Co.] by Jorge Candeias

The "H" should be centred and so should the horizontal arm. See the flag on the Josef Nüsse site which has been confirmed by an actual sighting 14.11.2003 on the "Hual Trekker".

Lys-Line AS

The company has offices in the United Kingdom, Denmark, Ireland, the Netherlands, Belgium adn Sweden. The flag is white with two blue diagonal stripes in lower left and upper right corner and the blue S-like monogram of the company in the middle.
Ivan Sache, 1 December 2003


Formed as Simonsen & Slang hence the emblem, changing name in 1997 to the name under which their shipping operations had originally been made. Although the flag is shown like the logo on the company website, the Josef Nüsse site, under the old name, shows a flag with the diagonal bands going per bend sinister and it is possible to make out that the emblem is placed separately on both sides so as to look the same to the viewer. Why the bands are different is a mystery as Brown 1982 was showing the version shown here, unless it was changed early in the company's history. The blue shade would also appear to be dark.
