'Gerolimich & Co.' was an alternative name for ‘Nav[igazione] Gen[erale]
Austriaca’ of NGA as shown in the on-line 1912 Lloyds Flags & Funnels, no. 85,
first on this page:
Included in the Austrohungarian pages since the company seat, Trieste, was then situated in the Austrian part of Austria-Hungary. Red field with white diamond bearing black initials ‘NGA’, serifed.
The same firm, now using the family name only, in the 1940 source resembling the Gerolimich version on FOTW with a green initial ‘G’ however. Wedge 1926 is right about the initial (which has taken the acronym’s place) but not the colour – surely the use of the national (Italian) colours is not a coincidence. See this image.
