There is not much known, but the company was established in 1966 together with H.P. Vith the Flensburger Bereederungs-Alliance GmbH and was based in Flensburg.

The flag was dark blue with a white capital "C" in the centre of a blue rhomb fimbriated white (see left image above). The other flag was celestial blue, parted by a throughout, voided lozenge white, charged with a white initial "C" (see right image above).

Reederei Clermont

[Reederei Clermont #2] image by Eugene Ipavec, 18 Jul 2006

To be honest, I first encountered the flag and then the company, only to find that the tangible item, the "flag in the cloth", was different from the items on the company site, or so I thought at first. Reederei Clermont is a tourist shipping company operating out of Wismar, a German (formerly East German) town on the Baltics. Website: obsolete company page http://www.reederei-clermont.de

Founded in 1990, this family business now operates four ships of which two are newly built. Routes include visits to the harbour and immediate surroundings (have a look at the WW2 concrete ship), to the island of Poel, chartered trips, and a regular line to nearby Wendorf.  Also possible are marriage ceremonies on board ship, presumably when the weather is not stormy (yet). 8-)

Now the flag, seen as a drawing on above sites and on several photos is white with a blue ascending diagonal stripe, a blue initial "C" in the upper hoist and a blue steering wheel in the lower fly.

But a German eBay auction item 9531901274 (ended 23 June 2006) shows a version with a broad descending diagonal, the "C" lower and the steering wheel higher.  See the original photo rotated and mirrored to bring it into line with the company version (tell-tale camera watermark now in the upper right corner, on its head!).

I am convinced that the attachment, as sent, shows the house flag correctly.

In centre of the cross is a smaller "H".

Contchart Hamburg Leer Gmbh & Co. KG

[Contchart (Shipping Company)]

The company (freighting and ship management) was established on 23 October 2012 in Hamburg as a joint venture of MPC Münchmeyer Petersen Steamship and Thien & Heyenga. Before the beginning of 2012 Thien & Heyenga had founded the freighting company Contchart Hamburg Gmbh & Co. KG. MPC purchased 50% of the shares and the company was renamed.

The flag combines the colours of Eastern Frisia (blue - red - black) - representing Leer - and Hamburg (red - white).
