Käptn Brass

Fahrgastschifffahrt Käptn Brass - Käptn (German slang for captain) Brass is a shipping company for passenger transports, especially for excursions of daytrippers. The company is located in Rostock-Warnemünde.
It is a white flag with blue horizontal stripes at both edges and a blue capital "M" in the centre of the flag. I have no idea, why there is an "M" in the flag, but nearly all shipnames of the company are beginning with an "M", perhaps the company has kept the flag of a former company.
