Dawn Shipping Pty. Ltd.

Dawn Shipping Pty. Ltd. Formed in 1984 to operate a cargo service across Bass Strait it was announced in The Log 11/1984 that vessels would be flying the "Fighting Kangaroo" flag which is shown in the "Kangaroo Flag" page. Whether it was meant to be a house flag is not clear from the report but as the service never commenced operations it does not matter. The flag was seen flown by the "Express" of Howard Smith Ltd. in 11/1990 but as an Australian symbol only.

The houseflag of Flagship Charters is diagonally divided blue-red with a white diamond, not touching the borders of the flag and charged with a black Italic F. It is shown on a photograph on the company website presenting the wedding packages proposed by the company.

Flagship Charters. They operate two websites and the second, http://flagshipcruises.com.au gives the official name as Flagship
Cruises Pty Ltd. and shows a slightly different version of the logo with the diamond touching the top and bottom edges though as the sides of the diamond do not properly align with the field division the chances are that it is all immaterial and there is no actual flag. Though if there is one I doubt that the letter is italic as the spine is angled in line with the image edges. The company arranges charters for the various vessel owners according to its site just a booking centre in effect.
