Lloyd Aviation

image by António Martins-Tuválkin, 3 March 2007

The logo at <> confirms basic flag design: (mainly red) national flag on the canton and black background. This is a black flag with red canton, apparently of Lloyd Aviation, a small airplane company seated in Puerto Ordaz, Bolivar State, Venezuela.
This flag design appears integrated in the company logo, being technically a flagoid: It could be the actual conmpany flag, or a simplification of of it. Or it could be some sort of aviation signal flag used in the logo.

Previous Flag

Here is the flag of PDVSa or Petróleos de Venezuela, Sociedad Anónima, which is the Venezuelan Oil Company, which is managed and controlled by the State. Though autonomous, it is under the supervision and control of the Ministry of Energy and Mines (MEM). PDVSA's oil tankers (& other ships) fleet is hoisting Venezuelan flags again . Perhaps "PDV Marina" has a flag of its own, as any other shipping house flag.

PDVSA (Petróleos de Venezuela, S.A.) (Venezuelan Oil, Inc.) is the Venezuelan state-owned petroleum company. It has activities in exploration, production, refining and exporting oil, as well as exploration and production of natural gas. Since its founding on 1 January 1976 with the nationalization of the Venezuelan oil industry, PDVSA has dominated the oil industry of Venezuela, the world's fifth largest oil exporter. It opertaes gas stations and also has several offices wordlwide (offices in Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, China, Cuba, Spain and Netherlands, among others).

One of its branches is PDVSA Argentina (colloquially known as PDVSUR), and the flag is the same PDVSA flag, horizontal white background with the logo (  ) in the middle, but adding the word ARGENTINA below it, all in red colors and capital letters.
The logo, created by Designer by Jesus Emilo Franco, is based on a rock engraving of a decorated sun, representing the Guarataro Stone, which was found during explorations carried out close to the town of Caicara del Orinoco. The sun is associated as a source of energy, which is the company's main goal. The logo was initially blue with black letters, but later was changed into red
