Compañía Peruana de Vapores S.A.

Josef Nuesseʼs site has a flag with three letters: http://home.t-online.de/home/josef.nuesse/36.htm identifying the firm as Compañía Peruana de Vapores S.A. (CPV) and showing a real “Peruvian” sun on a broad lozenge. No doubt the little disk was meant to portray a sun in the 1930 versions. (Funnel: yellow with a black top, a red band with a yellow diamond separated from said top by a narrow yellow band.)

So the diamond seems to have become a broad lozenge. And one letter has been dropped, reflecting no doubt a change in the firmʼs name. The line was founded in 1906, was really a state company, and closed down in 1990 as the government wanted to stimulate privatization.
