Linabol old house flag image by António Martins, 21 October 2005

In Joseph Nüsse’s website page about Bolivian shipping houseflags photos, the flag of Linabol — Líneas Navieras Bolivianas S.A.M., La Paz. It is a horizontal tricolor of light blue, red and yellow, with a large “incaic sun” over all (height approx. 2/3 of the flag’s height); approx. ratio is 3:5.

The sun is square, yellow lined black, with facial features and straight thick rays; those at the square’s corners have bird heads in their tips. The tricolor background, of course, refers to the flag of Litoral Department, Bolivia’s seaside territory lost to Chile in 1884.

From [lgr95]: Lineas Navieras Bolivianas S.A.M. (LINABOL), La Oaz (sic!) - horizontal triband of red, yellow and green; in center blue oval charged with white intertwined "LNB". I would assume that this is the old houseflag, and that Nüsse’s flag is the new one.

Brown’s [lgr95] lists this flag as belonging to Naviera Nicaraguense S.A., (Nanica) — only difference is the proportions of the stripes (c. 2:3:2), the blue stripe just blue. Brown’s seems to be wrong with his Nicaragua-outplacement.
