‘Freunde Historischer Schiffe’ or Friends of Historic Ships is an Austrian
non-profit organization dedicated to preserving interesting old vessels of
various kinds and, in a larger sense, maintaining Austrian maritime traditions.
Its contact address is at Hollabrunn, Lower Autstria.
Website (German only): http://www.fhs-austria.com
Besides being a forum for enthusiasts directly interested in operating and equipping ships, and providing excursions and other friendly get-togethers, FHS membership is open to individuals, public bodies (the City of Vienna, for example) and companies e.g. tourist shipping enterprises.
A photo taken from the site shows a long and narrow pennant in the Austrian national colours, horizontally RWR, coming together in the point. Near the hoist is placed a black logo combining an upright anchor and initials ‘FHS’. (We see the pennant’s reverse.)
A logo page shows the logo plus two drawings of short pennants, the first (coloured) of which may be visible (thus real) on one or several photos on the site (but if so, I missed it): http://www.fhs-austria.com/docs/presse/presse_logo.html
