Kosmos Linie

Ah! Here's, finally, a great flag! It's good in itself: a red and white vertical bicolour with a blue disc centered, surrounded by 6 blue 5-pointed stars, arranged in two partial arc on both sides of the disc. But it's also good because the caption is completely clear: it reads "Kosmos Linie".
Jorge Candeias, 7 Dec 2004

The stars are indeed blue. See the 1907 painting (with very small flag), but especially the pdf file (house flag chart, 1902). Pity, they show six-pointed stars. Five-pointed stars again under No. 182 of the on-line 1912 Lloyds Flags & Funnels, i.e. 'Deutsche Dampfschiffahrtsgesellschaft "Kosmos", Hamburg'.
So this has to be resolved, but I'd rather believe in Jorge's version.
A question remains... and perhaps our German list members can help here... is there a 'cosmological' intent behind the flag design?
