Blue triangular pennant with yellow border along outer edges and with crowned yellow winged wheel.

The width of the yellow borders is 1/12 of the hoist measured along the hoist. The wing span seems to be approximately 3/4 of the hoist size. This pennant would have been used as signal on ships belonging to the State Railroads Company, undoubtedly together with the regular rectangular ensign at stern. Questions are quite natural: Dates of adoption, usage and possible replacement are unknown.

Statens Järnvägar. I think the pennant was still in use in the 1970's at least.
Elias Granqvist, 18 March 2003


Svenska Statens Järnvägar operated ferries from at least 1900. According to the International Flag Book (Pedersen) of 1971 [ped71b]the flag was adopted about 1956 (earlier Kannik in the "Handbook of Flags" 1958 [kan58a] had merely classed it as "adopted quite recently") but this is disproved by the flag being shown in the Große Flaggenbuch of 1939 [neu39]. There may have been changes. The Collectors Corner site shows a cap badge with the flag being bordered on all three sides, the crown being all gold and the wheel pointing to the hoist, showing it under the name of S.F. Tågfärjor. The Josef Nüsse site shows another version under the title of S.J. Färjetrafik with a darker blue field , gold borders on the two sides top and bottom and the emblem all in gold but positioned vertically so the crown points to the hoist. Again the wheel points to the base which is the equivalent of to the hoist if the emblem were to be placed horizontally although in this case it may merely mean that the flag is shown upside down. In 1991 there was a restructuring of the Swedish State Railways which saw for the formation of SweFerry A/B which later became Scandlines.

Statens Järnvägar Current Flag

The flag of Svenska Järnvägar/Swedish Railways was in 1998 (when I saw it in Helsingborg and Trelleborg) an unequal horizontal diband of dark blue over red white with logo over all, approx. (8+2):15.

The logo consists of a stylized winged wheel under the initials "SJ", set in sans-serif capitals.
António Martins-Tuválkin, 23 April 2006


Please note, the abbreviation SJ is not for 'Svenska Järnvägar' - it's for 'Statens Järnvägar'

Blue triangular pennant with crowned yellow five-pointed star from which are issuing thunderbolts.

This pennant would have been used as signal on ships in service of Telegraph Inspection, undoubtedly together with the regular rectangular ensign at stern. Dates of adoption, usage and possible replacement are unknown.

Blue triangular pennant with a crowned yellow post horn. As indicated, this was used as signal by ships carrying mail, in addition to the usual ensign. Dates of adoption, usage and possible replacement are unknown.

Fishing Inspection

Triangular pennant quartered blue and yellow.

Hoist quarters' length is half the fly quarters' (i.e. 3+3:4+8) This pennant is so strikingly similar to the modern fishery inspection pennants (of the Hague Convention etc.) that the question is obvious: is this origin of the modern Fishing Inspection flags?
