About the flag

Empresa Insulana de Navegação (a.k.a. African Line): a simple flag with letters EINS on it, but at the back cover of this 1971 brochure on line (from Björn Larsson’s collection) where we find a flag with three horizontal stripes and letters EIN in the centre, lighter one. Luckily, it’s in the 1912 Lloyd’s Flags & Funnels [llo11] under No. 1319 on p. 64, avaliable on-line: white with narrow blue upper and lower horizontal borders, blue letters «E.I.N» (no serifs) in the centre for «Empreza Insulana de Navegaçao (Bensaude & Co.), Lisbon». An alternative name for this venerable firm, according to The Ships List website, was Insular Line.
