Kristian Jebsens Ltd.

The flag is blue with a white zigzag stripe centered, vertical with 2 zigs and 2 zags. The company logo centered on this stripe and consists of a "K", with one of the lower legs stretching out to suggest a "J", all black.
Jorge Candeias, 4 April 1999


Kristian Jebsens Ltd. was a Norwegian company dating from 1929 with sundry name changes along the way, the last I have recorded being 1995 when it became Jebsens SA Group and in 1998, following a takeover by Actinor Shipping A/S, the ship management business was placed under Wilson Management A/S. The flag shown was changed to a horizontal triband of blue-white-blue with the white taking about 2/3 the field and bearing a narrow blue horizontal zig zag band of 3 complete and 1 half upward zigs. This brought it into line with its funnel band markings and the change is noted in Brown 1982. I note the former flag still shows on the Hong Kong site which relates to an agency company of that name and assume that it now has no connection with Norway with the name, and possibly the old flag, having been acquired although whether the latter actually still flies may be another matter.

The flag is probably taken from the website of the Hong Kong agency subsidiary. The actual shipping company is Lian Huat Shipping Co. (Pte) Ltd. of Singapore.

Like many visitors to Hong Kong, I went to the Victoria Peak, where there is a scenic lookout known as Lions Pavilion. On the pavilion there is this line in Chinese: "Donated by Ming Ren Shipping & Trading Co. Ltd.", along with the image of its house flag. It should be noted that this shipping line no longer exists, having been officially de-registered on October 19, 2001.

Photo detail (LUOP)

The real item may be seen on this page:  http://www.cmenergyshipping.com/shownews.asp?id=563 but is the flag really held upright?
Well, our friends in the photo did a good job – have a look at the logo on the company site: http://www.hkmw.com.hk/webappen/index.asp
