Must be Nordischer Bergungsverein, see offer
by a rare book seller. So it's a towage company (seat: Hamburg).

Yes, but a picture says it much better... see the on-line 1912
Lloyds Flags & Funnels, No. 499.

Hum... some differences from my source. The cross is here made of 4 red squares around a white one and the cross is not centered in the whole flag. Instead, now it's only centered in a imaginary rectangle defined by the top, bottom and hoist limits of the white area and the center of the white swallowtail in the fly. Vertically, it's not centered at all: the cross is shifted to the bottom, but not enough so that the whole cross + sigla device becomes centered.

The white swallow tail pennant has a red bordure at three four sides. In the centre is a red, Greek cross topped by a black, embowed inscription "NBV".
