About the Flag

At Binnenvaartsite at is a Rhenus houseflag: blue with a white diamond with a black sans serif "R". However, according to the same site, at is the ship Rhenus 125, owned by Rhenus Schiffahrt AG in Basel, Switzerland, now the Liberty Anne, owned by United Cruise in Arnhem (probably a daytripper on the Rhine, or as Kees Kleinendorst used to say: a mozart)

Jarig is quite right in pointing to the R-in-diamond flag as a precursor of the current Rhenus house flag. My new source “Flaggen auf dem Rhein” (1952 ed.) confirms this on p. 61 by showing one and the same flag for:
- “Rhenus” Aktiengesellschaft für Schiffahrt und Spedition, Basel (i.e. Co. „Rhenus“ for Shipping and Forwarding, Ltd, Basle)
- Rhenus, Gesellschaft für Schiffahrt, Spedition und Lagerei m.b.H., Mannheim (i.e. Rhenus, Co. for Shipping, Forwarding and Warehousing Ltd, Mannheim).

The ‘Marcollect’ site shows a collection of Stinnes-related house flags (table flag format) in which our two Rhenuses (meaning the old flag and the new one) are represented:
