Sogn og Fjordane

[Song og Fjordane ferry company] by Jan Oskar Engene

The ferry company of Sogn og Fjordane has a swallow tailed field with a white rectangle with a blue saltire in the middle.
Jan Oskar Engene, 20 November 1995

The flag of Fylkesbåtane developed from a Norwegian flag signalling system introduced in the early 1800's. This required ships to fly a white flag with a letter corresponding to the town where the ship was registered. The letter for Bergen was X, which is still seen on the Fylkesbåtane flag. The white field soon had borders added, mostly in red and blue, in all sorts of variations. The red borders on the flag of Bergen are an inheritance of this signalling system.
Jan Oskar Engene, 20 March 1996

This company was operating its ships under Norwegian registry and had the Norwegian flag hoisted on the rear staff. Two other flags were hoisted from cables in midship, the Danish flag in starboard and the Swedish in the port side.
António Martins, 21 October 1999

Sundbusserne is no longer running Norwegian colours. They flagged over to the Swedish ship registry and they are are flying Swedish flag since September 2001.

A passenger ship traditionally fly small national flag of the port city she left and the port city she is heading for at some high point midships, usually the mast.
