House flag of Anangel - Image by Jarig Bakker, 31 October 2005
The mother group of Anangel is called Agelef Shipping Group Ltd.. It is
managed by John Angelicoussis. The group has offices in Piraeus,
London, Houston, Manilla and Okpo, and operates more than 50 vessels,
mainly bulk carriers and tankers. The two main management companies of
the group are Anangel Shipping Enterprises, which operates about 25
bulk carriers, and Kristen Navigation with some 30 tankers.
In 2004 the group took the pioneering step of ordering the first Greek LNG carrier, and since then has expanded the series to four of the 145,700 m3 vessels. The vessels are due to be delivered as from the second half of next year, and will be managed by the recently created group Maran Gas Maritime. All four carriers have been chartered for 20 years to the Ras Laffan Qatar-ExxonMobil LNG project. Since Maran Gas Maritime's first order, two other leading Greek tanker players - Dynacom and Tsakos Energy Navigation - have also stepped into the LNG sector.

According to Brown's Flags and Funnels of Shipping Companies of the World (1995) [lgr95], the house flag of Anangel is horizontally divided red-white-red (1:4:1) with a green clover leaf in the middle.
