Deutsche Heringsfassfabrik GmbH
The company was located in Emden and had only one ship the MS „JAKOB EIDENGA”. The only purpose was shipping of homemade herring barrels. It is a 5-stripes flag with horizontal stripes black over yellow over blue over yellow over black (ratio est. 1:1:4:1:1) with white initials “JE” in the centre of the blue stripe.

Deutsche Herringsfassfabrik. The letter "J", as shown by the quoted source actually has a horizontal arm at the top. As Klaus-Michael states, it was a one ship company with the vessel built 1956 and sold 1968.
