House flag of Castanié - Image by Ivan Sache, 24 September 2010
Joseph Castanié was a noted shipowner living in Oran, a main port of Algeria (known today as Wahrân). His company seems to have operated coastal lines linking Moroccan and Algerian ports. In 1920, Castanié is listed as the Secretary General of the influent Fédération Algérienne du Commerce et de l'Industrie (Algerian Federation of Commerce an Industry).

The house flag of Castanié, as shown in the Yearbook of the Central Committee of France Shipowners (1922), is red with a white crescent and a white "C".
