Introduction

On this website is the text used for the article. (My translation)

Flagchange in more than 100 years shipping on the Elbe river by Heinrich Fischbach.

The Saxon-Bohemian Steamnavigation Company was founded in 1867. The first flag contained the green/white colors of Saxony, as well as the colors black/yellow of the city of Dresden. In 1923 the Company became Limited the colors were changed. The colors green/white were retained, and a blue anchor was added.

In 1945 the Soviet Military Occupation took over the company. A white pennant bordered red contained a red star. Occasionally a red pennant with a white star is said to have flown. From 1950 till 1956 the flag of the German Shipping and Overhaul company was hoisted. In 1956 the company received a new name: VEB Passenger Shipping Co. "White Fleet". After the reunification of Germany in 1990 the name became "White Fleet Dresden. The green/white colors returned as the city-colors. The anchor-design was modernized, and its white color contrasted with the black/yellow background. In 1993 the company was sold to Cosmos München, and is now named Saxon Steamnavigation Co. Conti Elbe-navigation Co. A new flag was introduced: on the green/white stripes in top a white half-circle is projected with a blue stylized wave.

SOAG (Staatliche Oder-Schiffahrts AG)

[Staatliche Oder-Schiffahrts AG] image sent by Jan Mertens, 6 Dec 2008

SOAG or ‘Staatliche Oder-Schiffahrts AG’ (i.e. State-Owned Oder Shipping Co.) was a shipping company organized under Soviet control in occupied (East) Germany, 1945, nicknamed the “Red Fleet” after the vessel registry pass.

The pennant is already on FOTW-ws (see above), where ‘Sowjetische Verwaltung’ stands for ‘Soviet Administration’.  The company name proper is found on a page we already know (see about one quarter of page). Also illustrated is a rectangular house flag, white, bordered red on three sides (except the hoist) and bearing a red five-pointed star in the centre.

Founded in 1946, SOAG was taken over by DSU (Deutsche Schifffahrts- und Umschlagszentrale i.e. German Shipping and Transhipment Central) in 1952.
