Naniwa Tanker Co. Ltd is a Japanese shipping company established at Tokyo. The website, in Japanese only has a drawing of the house flag.

Some history: founded in 1943 at Naniwa (Osaka) as Fortune Oil Co. Mergers with oil trade firms lead to adopting present name (1961) and move to Tokyo, 1968. Office in Panama, 1972. Investments in safety, 1980s and later.

If I interpret the fleet page rightly, Naniwa operates five tankers directly while affiliates account for three more.

The house flag - again, in the national colours - is white bearing two horizontal red stripes interrupted by a large initial N (no serifs).
