According to Brown's Flags and Funnels of Shipping Companies of the World (1995) [lgr95], the house flag of Teo is horizontally divided blue-white-blue with a red letter T overall.
Jarig Bakker, 31 January 2006This flag would appear to have been modernized, perhaps in conjunction with company shifting from Piraeus to Athens. In any advent the flag as shown on Josef Nüsse's website and displayed on their vessels funnels shows more of a sky blue field with a narrow white horizontal band and overall a more ornate red "T" outlined white.
