Pilot Vessels

Reported 1863

[Pilot Vessels (Prussia, Germany)]
by Jaume Ollé

Like that of the Post Office, but with blue crossed anchors instead of the posthorn in lower hoist.

Norman Martin, 20 January 1998

Editor's note: see also the pilot flag.


Other Vessels of the Ministry of Trade 1863-1867

Reported 1863

[Other Vessels of the Ministry of Trade (Prussia, Germany)]
by Jaume Ollé

Like that of the Post Office, but with a blue vertical anchor instead of the posthorn in lower hoist.

Norman Martin, 20 January 1998

This was the ensign used by ships owned by the board of trade from 1863 until 1867, but it must be swallow-tailed.

Mario Fabretto, 17 August 1998


Cargo Ships' Ensign 1863-1867

Naval Labour Vehicle Flag reported 1863

[Cargo Ships' Ensign 1863-1867 (Prussia, Germany)]
by Jaume Ollé

Like that of the Post Office, but with, in the lower hoist, 4 red anchors with points towards the center thus forming an apparent X.

Norman Martin, 20 January 1998

This was the ensign used by cargo ships (1863-1867); the four red anchors were without cords [i.e. not fouled].

Mario Fabretto, 17 August 1998


Customs

Reported 1863

[Customs (Prussia, Germany)]
by Jaume Ollé

Like that of the Other Vessels of the Ministry of Trade, with the blue letters K and Z on each side of anchor.

Norman Martin, 20 January 1998


Fishery Inspection Pennant

White pennant (ratio c. 4:5) with red letters FA [for Fischerei-Aufsicht, fishery inspection] in the center.

Norman Martin, 20 January 1998


Service Flag for other Government Vehicles (1867?)

[Service Flag for other Government Vehicles (Prussia, Germany)]
by Jaume Ollé

Like the war ensign 1818-1867, but the eagle is like that of North German Ensign, with a blue vertical fouled anchor in lower hoist. Hence like the Other Vessels of the Ministry of Trade, but swallow-tailed and anchor is fouled.

Norman Martin, 20 January 1998

In the period 1867-1895 all the service flags were substituted by the Northern Confederation (later Empire) flags, so Prussia had no particular service flag. The [above] reconstructed flag could be the ensign used by ships owned by the board of trade from 1863 until 1867 but the blue anchor was without cord [i.e. not fouled]. The eagle design was according to the period.

Mario Fabretto, 17 August 1998

The flag described (with its indicated use) comes from Siegel 1912. It has no date but the form of the eagle caused me to guess at 1867 (hence the question mark). The anchor is fouled in the illustration.

Norman Martin, 17 August 1998

Editor's note: see also the State Ensign used on Inland Waters 1895-1918.
