S. Bartz-Johannessen A/S

[S. Bartz-Johannessen A/S] image by Ivan Sache, 18 December 2013

Josef Nuesse's "Ships and Flags" website shows the house flag of S. Bartz-Johannessen A/S, a Bergen-based company, as a blue triangular pennant charged with a white star tilted to the upper left corner. The same flag, with a different shade of blue, probably irrelevant, is shown as the house flag of Knarrevik-based AS Sigba, presented as ex-Rederiet Bartz-Johannessen.

Rederiet S. Bartz-Johannessen A/S, originally the company of Sigfinn Bartz-Johannessen, apparently became the holder company in the nineteen eighties. AS Sigba, probably from Sig(fin) Ba(rtz Johannessen), seem to be the company to do the actual overseas freight transport. There are other daughter companies for other aspects of the business.

Spanish fess of red-white-red with blue letters 'SEAL' in the central stripes, separated by small blue discs.
Jorge Candeias, 7 March 1999

The flag appears as a swallowtail in Josef Nüsse's house flags website: http://flags.seeleute.net/ as "S.E.A.L. - Scandinavian East Africa Line A/S - Oslo".

This webpage about nautical abbreviations mentions SEAL as "Scandinavian East Africa Line, Oslo - Norwegische Reederei" (i.e. Norwegian shipping company).
Santiago Dotor, 17 May 2005

The Scandinavian East Africa Line was the name the NAL used for their service to Madagascar. Hence the similarity of the flags. They started the service in 1921, and in 1981 it was sold to Deutsche Afrika-Linien, who seem to have absorbed it into their own services.
