The early funnels were black with the houseflag; later on it became buff (yellow) with black top, with the houseflag. Caption: M. Thorvik, Oslo.

The flag is red with a blue border and a white lozenge charged with a M (blue).

#75 Melsom & Melsom, Larvik - red flag, white diamond, blue "M". Until the 1950's a whaling company

A houseflag with the horizontal bands of blue, white, and red muse belongs to another company. Perhaps, MRF (Møre og Romsdal Fylkesbatar). Many Norwegian houseflags have the red-white-blue combination.

Det Nordenfjeldske Dampskibs, Trondheim: white, a red flower in the centre encircled by a black rope and black letters NFDS in the corners (NF on the upper horizontal, DS on the lower).

There is an image in "All about Ships and Shipping", 1938, in which the ropes look blueish. In Lloyd's 1957 is a description: "White, red rosette in loop of rope above knot; black N F D S. Funnel: Black, broad red band between two narrow white bands."
