This is a long shot but... could it be Gläfke & Hennings, Hamburg?  This firm is mentioned a few times on this page, selling the occasional ship to the Deutsche Levante Linie.
A picture has been found, but the name is really Gläfcke & Hennings: see item from Massary cigarette album, 1930.
Name of source: "Flaggen ,die über Meere Völker verbinden" (i.e. flags connecting peoples across the seas).

The Hamburg connection was right on the dot, in fact the company seems to have had no second thoughts about appropriating the castle.
Here we see the "Polynesia" who once was owned by Gläfcke & Hennings from 1904 till 1921:
The company is reported within Mathies 1924 as existing from 1888 until 1899, and in 1904.

According to source Hamburg shipowners register provides evidence of the company's existence at least from 1876 until 1888. The white flag is divided by a red saltire. In two quarters are red inscriptions: "GH" (hoist) and "St" (fly).
