C.K. Hansen ("Dannnebrog" S.S. Co.), Copenhagen: the split Dannebrog on a blue background, but without interrupting the swallowtail by a short right piece ending the white cross. (Probably a mistake in detail.)
Jan Mertens, 11 December 2003

C.K. Hansen. A ship-broking firm, they were managing owners of A/S D/S Dannebrog which they formed in 1883. A reorganization in 1967 saw them split and in 1970 the shipping company changed its name to Dannebrog Rederi A/S under which it still operates using this flag.
Neale Rosanoski, 27 April 2004

C.K. Hansen. Jan is quite right about the squaring of the cross point of the Dannebrog. All sources, apart from Stewart, so show it.

Based at Gentofte to the N. of Copenhagen, family owned Helle-Broe's Baadmands ("boatmen") company was founded in 1857and is occupied in mooring, unmooring, and shifting vessels in Copenhagen harbour round the clock. Website, in English, with house flag drawing: http://www.helle-broe.dk/
Launch ‘Forward III’ serves as a crew change, supply, and inspection boat, photos of which are easily found on the ‘net but no house flag was spotted.
So the drawing will have to do, and a striking flag it is: blue swallowtail, bearing a red Maltese cross in the centre plus white serifed initials “H” (upper hoist) and “B” (lower fly).

Klaus-Michael Schneider, 17 September 2008

Lloyds 1912 shows a dark blue star, not black, and the number is 910. The blue star version is shown on these pages as "P. Brown, Jr  (Det Helsingorske Dampskibsselskab) together with an explanation of the connection between the two companies. Lloyds 1904 shows a normal rectangular version.
Neale Rosanoski, 20 August 2011

We have Det Helsingorske Dampskibsselskab, red field bearing a white square bearing a black five-pointed star. And we have P.Brown, Jr., red field bearing a white square bearing a blue five-pointed star. Now the entries suggest there's a connection, Lloyds 1912 [llo12] apparently gives that connection explicitly, but from the pages, I'm not quite sure what that connection is. Does anyone have that Lloyds handy, or does anyone otherwise know how these fit together?

Holm & Wonsild. Some pre WW2 sources show the flag without the white border but most agree with the flag shown here.
