"Nordstjernan" Johnson Line
Jarig Bakker 8 October 2003


Brown 432: Rederiaktiebolaget Nordstjernan Johnson Line, Stockholm
Funnel: Black with, between two yellow bands a blue band with a yellow five-pointed star with a blue J.
Flag: A forked blue flag, with centered on the remaining field, a yellow five-pointed star with a blue J. the angle of the fork is approximately 100 degrees.
Peter Hans van den Muijzenberg, 19 October 2003


The horizontal red/blue biband with the angled white 6 pointed star shown here is the flag originally of the U.K. company George Thompson & Co which was later used by the British & Commonwealth Line Ltd.

As far as I know it has never been used by anyone else and certainly not by Axel Axelson Johnson with their correct flag being described by Peter and correctly shown on Page 5 of this section as the first example in the name of Johnson Line.. The trading company originated as Rederi A/B "Nordstjeran" in 1890 and continued until 1983 when it became Johnson Line A/B and then in 1990 the passenger business was merged into Effjohn International O/Y A/B.

Apparently this company transported coal.
Ole Andersen, 2000-Sep-18


A.R. Appelqvist A/B became Ara-bolagen A/B and then A/B Arafart before disappearing from Lloyds at the end of the 1970s. From the company cap badges it appears that the original flag may have been plain white with the black "ARA" emblem.

B&N Nordsjöfrakt

[B&N Nordsjöfrakt] by Jorge Candeias

B&N Nordsjöfrakt AB (Sweden) - Dark blue with horizontal yellow stripes running near the top and the bottom of the flag and the inscription "B&N" in the center, also in yellow.
Jorge Candeias, 9 February 1999


B&N Nordsjöfrakt AB has its offices in Skärhamn in Bohuslän and has its homepage at http://www.bn.se/. To judge from the homepage, it seems as if they use both square cut and swallow tailed versions of the house flag.
Elias Granqvist, 2001-Mar-17


B&N Nordsjöfrakt A/B seem to have several versions which presumably relate to the various companies making up the combine. The 1st version is confirmed by a flag from the Josef Nüsse site which he associates with Sea Partner which would be Sea Partner Sweden A/B, a joint venture of B&N, Gorthon Lines A/B and Swedish Orient Line A/B. He also shows the 2nd swallow tailed version but with a lighter mid shade of blue and white instead of yellow. Brown 1995 shows another version, a white swallowtail with a very broad blue horizontal band bearing the white letters "B&N".

Brown, 1951 and 1958, do not show a white border in the hoist. Possibly sightings thought it was part of the sleeve.
