The Royal Dutch Shell plc (commonly known as Shell), is an Anglo-Dutch multinational oil and gas company incorporated in the United Kingdom and headquartered in the Netherlands. Created in 1907 by the merger of Royal Dutch Petroleum and Shell Transport & Trading, it is the largest company in the world, in terms of revenue, and one of the six oil and gas "superpowers."
On March 2, 2014, I found several pictures with the official Shell flag (See the picture of the flag in their Amsterdam office and the picture of the flag in their London office.
The official flag is a horizontal flag with a yellow vertical stripe on the mast, then a vertical red stripe (half in size regarding the yellow stripe) and then the rest of the horizontal white flag bears the logo in the middle.

The shell represents Shell Oil, and the signal flags "GRP" are the old signal code for "Give Way". This pin is a license-plate ornament that was given out by American Shell dealers as part of an advertising campaign to promote courteous driving habits.
