Myanmar Five Star Line

[Flag of Five Star Line] image by Rob Raeside

The Brown series of 1978, 1982 and 1995 all show a red flag with a very broad horizontal blue band bearing 5 white stars. The company began as the Burma Five Star Line Ltd., then becoming successively the Union of Burma Five Star Line Ltd., the Burma Five Star Shipping Corporation and then in 1989 Myanma Five
Star Line. I have shown the Lloyds spelling of "Myanma" which differs from the country name.
