Following services are rendered by Nyki Shipping (selection, jm): “technical management, fleet operations, financial and investment advice to clients, sales and purchase (…), crew recruitment”. VW-Nyki Shipping offers i.a.: “commercial fleet management, chartering and freight contracting, project management, port agencies”. I should not forget to mention that the company name recalls the family names of founders S. Nijveen and G. Kieboom: “ny” and “ki” respectively.
‘Schuttevaer’ no. 41 of 11 Oct 2008, front page: on-line archive page here:
This source provides a good view of the house flag, photo detail (HH/foto
Beentjes). (‘Larch’ ran aground at IJmuiden harbour but was towed
away and was not seriously damaged.) Yellow field with large blue
rectangle (or blue field with very wide yellow border) bearing white initials
‘NS’ without serifs.
I had never seen this one but – so it goes – pictures crop up once you know what to look for… See
following links for 'Birch’, ‘Merle’, and ‘Maple’, all flying the flag.

Founded in 2003, Nyki Shipping at Rhoon (NL) describes itself as a niche
player in shortsea and inland navigation “from the Albert Canal (in Belgium,
jm) to Nyki Shipping. Whilst most ships are seen flying the "NS"flag sourced
by Jan and imaged by Eugene, in 2006 the "Ivy" was flying a white flag
with the VW Nyki logo. This was [is?] probably the flag of the founding
VW-Nyki Shipping B.V., under whom Lloyds originally showed all vessels,
possibly initially used by Nyki Shipping B.V. who Lloyds started showing
at the end of 2006. I am enclosing the flag extract from the foto [which
can be seen here],
together with the logo as shown on the company
website. There is one problem in that the photo does not appear to
show the small wording of "SHIPPING" but going by the logo it is so small
and faint that one would have to have a closer view to be absolutely sure.
