Baltischer Lloyd Stettin

[Baltischer Lloyd Stettin] image by Klaus-Michael Schneider, 26 Jul 2009

Baltischer Lloyd, I have no images, the company's existence was 1871-1874 according to Bonsor in his "North Atlantic Seaways" and 1870-1876 in the shipslist website and this is outside the scope of my books as although they go back to 1883 it is not until Lloyds 1904 that non British companies were shown in any number.
Bonsor does not illustrate but he describe the flag as being white, black "BALTISCHER LLOYD, STETTIN" between two black concentric circles, in centre, black head of a griffin vrowned.

Bavaria AG

[Bavaria AG] image by Jos Telleman, 4 Jul 2007

Bavaria Schiffahrts- und Speditions-AG (Bavaria Shipping and Transport Co. Ltd) has its head office at Aschaffenburg on the River Main and local offices in Germany (Würzburg, Bamberg, etc.) and France (Strasbourg). Company website (the house flag appears), and the English version of this site.
Bavaria offers extensive warehousing facilities, is specialized in integrated transport, operates a fleet of 25 barges representing about 45.000 metric tonnes, and has a subsidiary offering insurance.
If we consider the company website's version as the correct one, we can describe the house flag as being light blue with a thin white saltire and a small white, black-rimmed, disk in the centre bearing a black initial "B".

Bayer Chemicals

[Bayer Chemicals pennant] image by Klaus-Michael Schneider, based on an mage sent by Jan Mertens,

As mentioned here earlier the Bayer chemical factory flew a house flag showing the winged lion, the brand preceding the well-known "Bayer cross". A pennant really, it appears in "Flaggen auf dem Rhein" (1952 ed.) and so documents the continued use of the lion - but let me say right away that I do not yet know the years when Bayer's fleet was active. The pennant was vertically divided white (hoist) and blue (fly), the winged lion with one paw holding a caduceus and the other one resting on the globe, all yellow, in the hoist. Captioned as 'Farbenfabrik Bayer, Leverkusen' (i.e. Bayer Chemical Works, Leverkusen).
One single vessel, the push boat-cum-firefighting boat BAYER, was shown on the Binnenvaart site - it was built in 1974 (from 1996 on registered at Dormagen which is on the Rhine N. of Cologne, as is Leverkusen):
Founded in 2001, Chemion Logistik at Leverkusen is now Bayer's specialized (owned) company responsible for logistic operations including inland shipping. No fleet of their own it seems.
Jan Mertens, 3 Dec 2007

Nearly the same lion can be found on the flags of rowing clubs Dormagener RG Bayer and RTHC Bayer Leverkusen
