TAGU Tiefbau GmbH Unterweser

[TAGU Tiefbau houseflag] image by Eugene Ipavec, 24 Jun 2009

TAGU T is a German waterway construction firm established at Oldenburg with local branches at Nordenham and Rostock. Website, German only: We learn that the firm, founded in 1927, was at first active in its own region (River Weser) concentrating at first on building dykes.  Since the takeover by Ludwig Freytag, another Oldenburg based construction firm, at the end of the nineteen sixties larger works have been realized such as dams and canals.
After expanding into Europe new activities include maritime cabling, offshore services, etc. with an eye to ecologically sound practices.  To get an idea of what this all means, have a look here (first of  three pages): Obviously this calls for highly specialized equipment (even up for rent), pontoons for instance: the site dutifully mentions that these all fly the German flag but there is a small supply ship as well.
The flag is blue with the company logo in yellow i.e. underlined and stylized, italic initials "TAGU" The name is placed in the centre of the flag rather than near the base as found on the squares seen throughout the site.

Tank Partner

[Tank Partner] image by Eugene Ipavec, 8 Aug 2006

"Tank Partner Chartering Company Ltd" or TPA for short, founded in 1989 "is established at Kaltenkirchen and presents itself as "Europe"s first and only international private shippers' tanker company". Company website: "Partikulier" meaning a shipper who owns his barge: "TPA Tankpartner are focused on mineral oil transportation on the Rhine including its tributaries, and the canals of Western and Northern Germany. All the large mineral oil firms and many mineral oil traders are clients of ours."
The text goes on describing the fleet (from 1000 to 4500 metric tonnes, these last in push combinations) and acknowledges the trend towards double-hulled vessels, one ship being active and more being built or planned. The shares are split up between private shippers (60%) and the management (40%).

The TPA logo (but it is a house flag!) is linked to this webpage. It is quarterly divided white above green (hoist) and red above white (fly) and bears the words "Tank" and "Partner" in black on the respective white fields.

Tankrode

[Tankrode houseflag] image by Eugene Ipavec, 23 Mar 2009

Obliged to demerger in the nineteen fifties, the Dutch shipping company Van Ommeren, which had been active, under different names, in Germany since 1908, founded "Tankrode Schiffahrts GmbH" later named "Van Ommeren Tankrode GmbH" both established at Hamburg.  Ultimately Van Ommeren's merger with Pakhoed would lead to "Vopak" strengthened by the takeover of "Elbe" becoming the fleet's operator.
The suffix rode found in the company name and in a number of ships' names refers to a feature of the North German landscape, a glade.
The "Binnenvaart" page dedicated to tanker "WALSRODE" shows the house flag as a drawing and, difficult to recognize, on a colour photo:
As Transtank's case, the Van Ommeren house flag had its stripes recoloured: blue-white-blue-white-blue; a white diamond, placed slightly towards the hoist, contained the well-known "VO" logo in red.

Johs. Thode, former BTA
Johs. Thode was established as Becker, Thode und Ascher (BTA) in 1890 as a ship broker company. But only a few years later the company ran its own ships, first only for North Sea and Baltic Sea. In the 60ies of the 20th century Johs. Thode became a pioneer in building cells in order to freight shuttle services in the Baltic Sea. In the 70ies he again began to build own ships. In 1979 Kurt Behrens took over the company, being a partner of Mr. Becker jr. before. Since 1988 the company is led by his son Dieter Behrens, who is the only companion.
Description of flag: It is a blue flag with a white diamond in its centre. Within the diamond are red capitals "BTA". The "T" has double height.

Thoering - yellow diamond

Thoering & Co. GmbH. Klaus-Michael Schneider's scanner has led him astray a bit for this one as the diamond is not white but yellow with a white edging and the black "T" is on the yellow - see image, which is taken from US Navy 1961 where the diamond shape is more flattened, a lozenge, than Klaus-Michael Schneider's "Esso" source though this should be a little smaller as it is less close to top and bottom [not an important point I feel just an explanation of the small difference in the images]. Esso's colours do confirm the yellow portion though as do their 1958 edition and the same source format Flaggen & Schornsteine of 1957.
