Ybarra & Co, Sevilla – blue flag, intertwined "AV" in white. I wonder whether there is a connection to the Dutch Oranjelijn/Zeetransport with exactly the same letters, meaning there "Antony Veder."

The initials VA of Ybarra's houseflag mean Vasco-Andaluza (Basque – Andalusian), because the founders of the company were Basques of this surname established in Seville.
