Dov Gutterman reported Navicon [broken link]: a triangular flag, horizontally "striped" in white-gold-white triangles. A white disc shifted to the hoist, charged with a black "N" in a circular font.

The "House Flags of Spanish Shipping Companies" site shows two flags for Navicon S.A., one being similar to the version shown here but with the ring and letter being blue. The second, which is also shown by Brown 1995 [wed58], replaces the yellow and inside of the ring with red.
The reason for having two flags is difficult to fathom but the use by Brown of the red version indicates that this might be for the shipping whilst the yellow version might be for other use such as a shore flag for example. I am not sure about the reference to Grupo Tra[n]smediterránea S.A. as Lloyds shows no such association thought it does state that Navicon S.A. is associated with Auxoil S.A., and the Trasmediterránea website also does not appear to include them as part of the Grupo.

This company has two ships: Navicon and Navipor. Could every ship have its own flag?
