Feldmühle

[Feldmühle] image by Eugene Ipavec, 24 Mar 2008

Feldmühle is the firm which took over the Koholyt shipping company in 1930.  Feldmühle is a very well-known name in paper production, see this webpage and following pages.

What I had not seen right away was the company's very own house flag, also shown in the 1928 Flaggenbuch, part II, no. 424 (page 42/99).
National colours of that period i.e. black-white-red: quarterly divided black (top, bottom) and white (left, right); a large white disk in the centre - enclosed by a red rim - bearing a black letter "F" (no serifs).
Caption: Feldmühle, Papier- und Zellstoffwerke Aktiengesellschaft (i.e. Feldmühle, Paper and Cellulose Factories Co. Ltd), Stettin.
For the moment I do not know when shipping activities started nor when they were stopped.

Flensburger Schiffsparten-Vereinigung

[Flensburger Schiffsparten-Vereinigung] image by Klaus-Michael Schneider, 15 May 2009

full name: Flensburger Schiffsparten-Vereinigung  AG (FSV) c/o Uwe C. Hansen Befrachtungskontor.
The company is located in Flensburg and was established by Heinrich Schmidt on 14 December 1904. In order to match conditions due to German law the partners of Schmidt, mostly foreigners, had to merge in one new company. Schmidt and his son Heinrich Wilhelm became general managers.
At the end of WW1 all ships had gone lost. Heinrich Schmidt died the same year and his sons Hans and Carl became members of the board and the company was successively rebuilt. The company increased from 1925 to 1928, but until 1934 non profitable ships were abolished. After both sons had died, Dr. Kähler became general manager. The last three ships got lost at the end of WW2. Main shareholder was Greta Korn, Schmidt's widow. With help of her son in law Uwe C. Hansen the company was rebuilt again and since 1951 many new ships were acquired. In 1987 there was a successful partnership with Hapag-Lloyd. The same time Hansen established "Baltic Bereederungs GmbH" together with Flensburger Fahrgastreederei Seetouristik".
In 1989 Greta Korn died. Uwe C. Hansen resigned in 1990 and delivered the company to his son Claus-Otto Hansen.
FSV, today "Uwe C. Hansen Befrachtungskontor" and "Baltic Bereederungs GmbH" still exist.
"Seetouristik" merged with Förde Reederei, forming the new company FRS.

Flensburg Stettiner Dampfer Linie

[Flensburg Stettiner Dampfer Linie] image by Jorge Candeias, 6 May 2004

This time, the flag is blue with a red cross patty. The caption seems to read something in the lines of "Reuse Sirt Dampf Ge.", but this includes, again, a huge dose of imagination.
Jorge Candeias, 6 May 2004

That is probably "Flensburg Stettiner Dampfer Linie", of Otto Weide, Flensburg.

M.A. Flint

Reederei Kapitän W. Freter

[Reederei Kapitän W. Freter] image by Klaus-Michael Schneider, 7 Apr 2009

The following obsolete page briefly recounts (in German) the rise and fall of a once very active tourist shipping company in the Baltics, Willy Freter: http://www.heiligenhafen.holsteinnet.de/seetou.htm (editorial note: information today no lnger available in source)
As the bridge linking Fehmarn isle to the (West) German coast was being built, local Heiligenhafen-based entrepreneur Willy Freter rented out boats to the construction firms and from 1960 on made supplementary money by offering boating trips to the bridge. This developed into tours around Fehmarn and to Rødbyhavn, a Danish town opposite.
These outings were popular not least because of tax-free sales on board. An additional activity was organizing fishing trips: according to the German weekly DER SPIEGEL (3 May 1976), the company in this way attracted almost 84,000 tourists in 1976 alone:
Although the Freter company expanded to become the largest operator in the Western Baltics, financial difficulties led to its demise in 1980. You saw it coming - a recent German eBay offer concerned Willy Freter! No. 170231089563 (end 29 Jun 2008), a company brochure put up by "dercho05", shows the house flag.
The flag is divided per saltire (hoist and fly triangles red, top and bottom triangles white) and has black initials "W" on the top triangle, "F" on the bottom triangle. In fact - perhaps for fiscal reasons -two companies are mentioned: "Reederei Kapitän Willy Freter sen." (father) and "Reederei Kapitän Willy Freter jun." (son).
Jan Mertens, 22 Jun 2008

The company ran a tourist ship service in the Baltic Sea, probably from Fehmarn Island/Bay of Hohwacht down to the Bay of Neustadt. It's for sure , that there was a stop at Dahme(Ostholstein county). According to Jan Mertens the company is Heiligenhafen based. The flag was divided per saltire into red and white. In the white quarters were black capitals "W"(top) and "F"(bottom).

The company is located in Bremen.
The former flag was white with a red serifed capital "F" in its centre, surrounded by a black circle. Eugen Friedrich is said to have a different flag today, but I have no further information. Furthermore Klaus-Peter Bühne says, the changes are not very remarkable.
Erroneous depiction (see right image above) shows a white flag with a red serifed capital "F" in ist centre, surrounded by a blue circle. According to the company there had never been a flag with a blue circle.
