[Johnson Line/Nordstjernan] by Jorge Candeias

Johnson Line belonged to Nordstjernan, whose official site is at http://www.nordstjernan.se/. Nordstjernan also owned a part of Silja Line (it doesn't seem as if it still does).
Elias Granqvist, 4 April 2001


This URL includes a flag exactly as that of Johnson Line, except that it is lighter. I wonder how different that is in normal houseflag practice (that is, if there's a difference at all).
Jorge Candeias, 5 April 2001


Dates from 1890, originally known as Rederi A/B Nordstjernan, apparently owned by Axel Axelson Johnson, they merged their passenger vessels into Effjohn International O/Y A/B with a 40% holding. The rest of their ships appear to have been disposed of with the company not appearing to be directly involved in shipping anymore. All indications that I have found are that the houseflag was dark blue as has been originally shown and the light blue version shown on the current Nordstjernan site is presumably that of the current "non shipping" company or possibly just an artistic effect created by the site designer.

Rederi A/B Motortank (Axel Brostrom & Son, Gothenburg)
Mark Sensen, 2000-Nov-21

See also Broströms


All other sources show the flag bands being of equal width which seems correct as it was part of the Broström Group and using a variation of their flag.

[N&T Argonaut] by Jorge Candeias

N&T Argonaut A/B was formed 13.2.1998 by the amalgamation of Argonaut A/B with Nordstrum & Thulin A/B. Acccording to the Josef Nüsse collection the flag is blue with the white letters NTA.

Nordic, Stockholm.
Ole Andersen, 2000-Sep-21


[Rederi A/B Nordic] by Jarig Bakker

The company appears to have ceased operations in the mid 1970s. However Brown, 1978 and 1982, shows a flag of 3 blue and 2 white horizontal bands with the middle blue broken by white with this bearing a blue "N" with the connection, if any, not known.
