About the Flag

Horizontally divided red-white-red flag with the white stripe larger and a red E placed in the middle of the white stripe.

Ermefer. The company was formed in 1970 and was part of Group Ermewa S.A. and was involved in the transportation of liquid foodstuffs. In 1978 the group, in partnership with other shipping companies began marine operations and the ships were placed under Vinalmar S.A. which had been formed in 1974 and which Lloyds show as a subsidiary of Ermefer. In 2003 the group was taken over and ceased maritime operations and in 2005 Ermefer, and presumably Vinalmar, were sold with both being liquidated at the end of 2007. The Ermefer flag was presumably flown by Vinalmar [if it bothered to fly any] as the funnel was painted in the same colours. Whether the flag was a group one or just applied to Ermefer is not known but Ermewa has a different logo on their website but whether it forms the basis of a flag is not shown by the site.
