Description of the flag

I found some images which most likely feature the flag of Panagra (Pan American-Grace Airways). "Panagra was an airline formed as a joint venture between Pan American World Airways and Grace Shipping Company. "It was founded in 1929 to compete with SCADTA, a German-owned company (from its establishment in 1919 until 1940 when it was nationalizes and established as AVIANCA), and held a quasi-monopoly over air travel in parts of Colombia and South America during the 1940s and 1950s."

These pictures are extracted from a PDF book called "SCADTA por SCADTA" (SCADTA by SCADTA), by Carlos Valenzuela Acosta and Manuel Arango Echeverri, (March, 2013). It has not been published as a book (yet), but it is in CD format.

The closeup of the control tower in the Baranquilla air dock: from left to right is what seems to be the Panagra flag on the left, a white horizontal flag with a top stripe, white in the middle with the logo (, without the "PAA", just the wing), and a bottom stripe), the SCADTA flag in the middle, and on the right is possibly the flag of Barranquilla.

I have come to the conclusion that the flag in this image is the Panagra flag, since it was established in the late 1920's and it was a direct competitor of SCADTA operating in Colombia as well.

The flag on the left of the photo is probably that of Pan American World Airways whereas the flag on the right is possibly that of Grace Line
