About the flag

The flag of the United Arab Maritime Co. from the United Arab Republic (Egypt) comes from a document dating from second semester of 1965: It is a triangular flag (apparently or really) blue, bearing the national coat of arms in white (apparent or real).

This company seems still to exist; this website in German says that it is state-controlled and had 444 ships in 1991 (see 'Wirtschaft und Verkehr').

Surely it is not the same as *this* one, the Egyptian Navigation Co. (Alexandria), founded in 1961 and in the public sector? See following page, where the national emblem is continuously obliterated by a wide-angled star... and only 15 vessels now... but on its pages it shows a similar, albeit even tinier, pennant.
A riddle, for now.
