It is a white flag with with a blue horizontal line on both edges, each line
followed immediately by a yellow line. In the centre is the company’s logo: a
yellow parallelogram, nearly completely covered by a blue one. Narrow parallel
horizontal lines, blue over yellow join the yellow parallelogram. The whole is
superimposed by a big yellow G left of the parallelograms, ending in an
arrowhead. The G is partially covered by a blue C.
Gozo Channel Company runs a regular ferry service between Gozo and Malta across Gozo channel and once a day a ferry from Msida to Mġarr (Gozo).

According to Adrian Strickland writing in 1992 (A Look at Malta Insignia),
"... ferries that run from Malta to the sister island of Gozo, wear the house
flag of the Gozo Channel Company, parted horizontally
white-blue-yellow-blue-white, with a dark blue company logo of three hills
standing upon a barry-wavy of white and blue in the centre." The logo is
seen painted on a ship.
