shipping page shows two further flags (about halfway, under “Eisenbahn
- Trajekt - Fährschiffe der Deutschen Reichsbahn”):
First house flag, captioned “1959-1960 (only MS-Sassnitz)”, white field twice horizontally edged blue-white-blue, in the hoist a blue disk (fimbriated yellow) bearing yellow initials “DR” (serifed) with a NRY tricolour “wing” extending into the fly. This tricolour has the shape of a parallelogram but the stripes do not actually touch.
Second house flag, captioned “from 1960 on, for all Reichsbahn ferries”: the tricolour has been replaced by three yellow stripes within, and separated by, grey holding lines.
‘Sassnitz’ refers to this East German ship.
