Eerland. The flag of Gerrit J. Eerland LCM Zoon B. V. Sleepdienst &
Transportonderneming is green and white, not black and white although the
company website is not clear and the error is understandable. The
letter though is black and the correct version can be seen on Josef
Nüsse's site. Brown 1995, show the correct colours but have the
flag bands sloping the other way.

"Duwvaart" by Jansen & Van Heck show the "Eerland other version"
in b/w on p. 31.
At the time of writing (book published 1988) the company was owned by Smit Internationaal but was allowed to retain its own funnel and flag. Various photos on pp. 31-32 unfortunately do not show a flag (either version).
There are, however, the last two photos on this page: the wee little flags confirming the "other version" shown.
