Kolb

[Kolb houseflag] image by Eugene Ipavec, 23 May 2006

The company website of Personenschiffahrt Gebr. Kolb, an inland touring shipping company, is here.
Established at Briedern on the River Mosel (Moselle), between Trier and Koblenz (quite near Cochem, in fact), Gebr. Kolb is a firm with a history.
Peter Kolb, son of a local ferryman, wanted to exploit a ferry service on that river starting 1921.  In those days the Mosel could be crossed on foot during the hot summer months so acquiring a harbour boat was not a good idea (it was sold) but a small motor launch did the trick. Cochem, Beilstein and Briedern were linked.  1924 and 1937 saw the acquisition of supplementary vessels, the most recent one (depth only 50cm) serving as a holiday outing boat for "Kraft durch Freude" tourists.
The three vessels saw war service in the area, were severely damaged but repaired and used in ferrying bridge building materials in 1945.  As happened in other places in Europe, river transportation also served as temporary replacement for railways.   The French occupation forces impounded one vessel in 1946.  From 1950 on, Peter Kolb and his son Karl Michael tried to relaunch their firm.
When the Mosel was canalized between 1958 and 1964, the Kolb vessels were active as tugs; tourist boats had to be chartered but in the ?1960ies, two of these were built especially.   The Kolb family grew, more ships were built and finally, in 1979, Karl Michael (died 1996) withdrew in favour of his children i.e. six sons and three daughters.  There was geographical expansion as well: an additional ship was bought in order to provide waterborne visits in and around Trier.
In 1999, the Cochem-based tourist vessel operator Rodulf Botsch GmbH was bought up. Nowadays the fleet counts sixteen vessels and a car ferry (chartered out).  According to the website, this makes Gebr. Kolb the largest private business of its kind in Germany.
It is not impossible to make out the house flag on some of the photos (?Galerie?) but the best image is the drawing seen right away when accessing the website.  Divided per saltire green (hoist, fly) and white (top, bottom), a black foul anchor is in the centre of the flag; little white disks bearing a black initial "K" are placed on the green triangles.

C. Krabbenhöft & Bock

[Krabbenhöft & Bock] image by Ivan Sache, 1 Feb 2004

Following the link found by Joe Mc Millan - The Mystic Seaport Foundation, we can reach the 1911 Lloyd's flagbook, whose full title is (after the scan of the cover): "Lloyd's book of house flags and funnels of the principal steamship lines of the world and the house flags of various lines of sailing vessels", published at Lloyd's Royal Exchange. London. E.C.
On p. 134, we have: #2046. G. Krabbenhöft, Hamburg. The flag is white with a blue saltire, charged in the middle with a red "K" in a blue ring.
Ivan Sache, 1 Feb 2004

The company was based in Hamburg and named G. Krabbenhöft until 1914. Carl Chr. Dietrich Krabbenhöft was confidential clerk in the company of Hans Heinrich Schmidt  and started an independent enterprise in 1910. Captain Bock became his partner in 1914 and since then the company had the above name. In 1926 the shipping company was given up but the company continued as ship supplier til the end of WW2.

Here is the website of Krey Schiffahrts GmbH - houseflag: horizontal black - red - blue with a white (what?) charged with black KS.
The Krey Schiffahrts GmbH, was founded by Mr. Georg Krey in the beginning of 1990 in Leer / Ostfriesland, The Company is presently managing a total number of 11 seagoing vessels in the worldwide trade with a number of 12 employees.

Krieger-Gruppe

[Krieger-Gruppe] image by Eugene Ipavec, 24 Aug 2008

Despite its name, Heinrich Krieger KG in Neckarsteinach is peacefully occupied.  According to the company website Krieger is 110 years old and successfully concentrates on the production of raw materials for construction such as sand and gravel, concrete, flags (meaning stones?), garden statues etc. In order to secure a steady supply of raw materials, the firm has had an inland fleet of its own since 1891 and has established warehouses alongside the Rhein and Neckar rivers.

The house flag appears on, and disappears from, the home site but I have managed to capture and enlarge its little brother: Divided per saltire blue (upper and lower triangles) and yellow (left and right triangles), there is a small white disk in the centre bearing a blue initial "K". See the flag in action on a barge, here.
Jan Mertens, 20 Mar 2006

The company site does not do the flag justice. The photos I saw then were simply not detailed enough.
See this forum page for the real item (neat barges, good flag usage). As you can see, the white disk has a black border and the initial "K" is black, not blue.
On the same forum, "Helmut" says (28 Jun 2008) that four ships are now operated by "Georg Krieger" (independent) but continue to fly the house flag.
Note: "Friedrich Krieger" flies a completely different house flag.
