Dampskibselsskabet af 1912 a/s

[Flag of A.P. M&oslashller (Maersk Line)]  image by Jorge Candieas, 1 June 2005

A painting in the Sĝfart museum in Troense shows the pennant of Dampskibselsskabet af 1912 a/s, Copenhagen: Blue with white 7 pointed star; heptagram 2 (meaning, "to the second point", I expect.)
Peter Hans van den Muijzenberg, 27 August 2001

Dampskibsselskabet af 1912 A/S. The flag is that of A.P. Mĝller, this being one of the two companies which formed the nucleus of this group.

Dampskibs-Aktieselskabet Progress (Copenhagen)

[Flag of Dampskibs-Aktieselskabet Progress] image by Ivan Sache, based on Joseph Nüsse website

White flag with a red seven-pointed star in the middle, an elongated and symmetrical Danish national flag placed along the upper edge of the flag, and a red stripe charged with progress in white placed along the lower edge of the flag. I guess this is an other Maersk-related company.
Ivan Sache, 16 November 2002

No, not Maersk. Besides, the company seems to have gone belly-up in the summer of 2000. There was talk of a management buy-out, but that seems to have failed.
Ole Andersen, 16 November 2002

Dampskibs-Aktieselskabet Progress (Copenhagen). Assuming that this is the company now known as D/S Progress, it is still shown by Lloyds operating through Progress Ugland Ltd. which is a joint venture with Ugland International Holdings plc, formed around 1999. Whether the flag is used by this concern is unknown. D/S Progress is shown as being formed 1904 and again by presumption it is the company [as D/S A/S Progress] which was operated by Marius Nielsen & Söhn and used their flag as shown elsewhere on this page. This association seems to have altered around 1960 when O. Amsinck are shown as the operators, from the same address. By the early 1970s Amsinck are no longer mentioned and D/S A/S Progress seem to have ceased as shipowners around the latter 1980s, next being traced as D/S Progress in the late 1990s. Nothing is known of when the flag shown here was adopted.

Dampskibselskabet "Norden" (Copenhagen)

[Flag of Dampskibselskabet "Norden"] image by Ivan Sache, based on Joseph Nüsse website

Red flag with a white seven-pointed star. This is the Maersk Line star, is not it? We show a similar flag for P. Brown Jun. & Co.
Ivan Sache, 16 November 2002

No, Norden was established in 1871, the first Maersk company (D/S Svendborg) is from 1904.
Ole Andersen, 16 November 2002

The website at http://www.ds-norden.com/ reports Dampskibsselskabet NORDEN AS (Copenhagen, Denmark) - blue-white-red-white-blue horizontal (~3:1:6:1:3) with 8 points star on the red stripe.
Dov Gutterman, 17 October 2003

Dampskibselskabet "Norden". Peter Brown, followed by P. Brown Jnr & Co., were operators at least, possibly even owners, although they are not mentioned by Lloyds from the 1960s. Sources usually showed both names but Stewart (1953) has only shown that of Brown.
Neale Rosanoski, 27 April 2004

Dampskibselskabet "Norden" (Copenhagen). I checked the company website to find the flag described by Dov but the nearest seems to be their addition to the letter "E" in their name heading of the red flag with star which could be construed to represent a multi banded flag except the top and bottom would be black not blue. The site also shows the plain flag with star flying over their building on the history page so I think that the name logo is in fact misleading and in fact it looks more like the funnel except that it does not show the star i.e. black with a red band edged by two narrow white bands. My guess is that they have combined the two in order to make their logo.

Danena A/S

[Flag of Danena A/S] image by Ivan Sache, 27 November 2003

Danena AS (Aarhus, Denmark) - Swallowtail, red, two thin white stripes and bold white N.

The company is based in Aarhus. It is a shipping and ship-owning company specialized in dredging in the Baltic, North Sea and Danish waters. The flag is swallow- tailed, red with two thin white stripes near the top and the bottom of the flag and a white N in the middle.
Ivan Sache
, 27 November 2003

Danena A/S. The "N" probably refers to Ejnar Nygaard who up to the end of the 1980s was shown by Lloyds as the manager at the same address as they still use.

Dannebrog Line

[Flag of Dannebrog Line] image by Jorge Candeias, 4 December 2005

The corporate newsletter of Dannebrog Lines: http://w3t.org/?c=dannebrog. shows the logos of both Dannebrog and Weco lines (both parts of Nordana Line). The Dannebrog logo is a swallowtailed Dannebrog on a blue rectangle. I guess a Danish company called Dannebrog had to use some adaptation of the national flag as their logo.

Det Dansk-Franske Dampskibsselskab

[Flag of Det Dansk-Franske Dampskibsselskab]image by Klaus-Michael Schneider, 17 September 2008

Det Dansk-Franske Dampskibsselskab, located in Esbjerg, uses a triangular pennant. The colours are the same like on the French flag. Within the white stripe is an inscription D-(blue) F (red). There is a red canton with a white centred cross.
