In the ‘De schepen’ (ships) section of above site the house flag can be dimly made out, at least in some cases, and also in the ‘Kantoor’ (office) section under ‘Amer Shipping’. But who cares, since the firm presents its house flag so well? Just click ‘De vlag’ (the flag) under ‘Amer Shipping’.
Translated quote: “Amer Shipping’s flag radiates a dynamic attitude. The Dutch tricolour accompanied by a powerful wave movement, symbolizing a ship under sail. In the upper right corner is placed the signal for the letter ‘A’, the ‘A’ of Amer Shipping!”
Under the flag image, some additional photos continue to appear. It should be added that the wave, at the bottom of a red field, is largely blue with a white crest and that the firm’s name is rendered in bold white letters, ‘AMER’ in the upper part, next to the ‘A’ signal flag, and rendered much larger than ‘SHIPPING’.
Amer Shipping also operates ‘Combi International BV’ which is responsible for marketing the vessels which the mother firm wants to sell (perhaps one of the two flags in front of the office is really Combi’s?).
A variant of the above, this flag has the word ‘COMBI’ is placed inside
the blue wave - much higher this time - and a small white oval is placed
above it. I think the use of the ‘~’ sign is justified as this flag
seems to be flying on ‘MVS Cofelica’, here.
