Echoship ApS is a Danish shipping company established at Svendborg (Fyn).
Homepage – in English - showing the house flag as a drawing and as a table flag
is at http://www.echoship.dk/. Founded
in 1990, the firm is active in complete management of coasters (in Europe),
currently 26 in number, and freight brokerage (globally). Sawn timber, it is
stated, is the most important bulk transported; then there are grains,
fertilizers, steel products, etc.
The house flag is white with a thin blue border; in the centre is a blue logo made up of four horizontal rows of stacked timber above three stylized waves.
The real item may be seen flying at ‘Crownbreeze’ and ‘Thea Marieke’:

I noticed that the flag of Echoship ApS is very close to that of
Nielsen Chartering A/S also of the town of
Svendborg. Echoship would be the continuation of Nielsen Chartering.

The company was founded in Copenhagen by Helge Folmer in 1955. It operates 13 vessels. The flag is red with the white monogram of the company in the middle. This monogram is based on the letter F. Company website: http://www.folmer.dk/
