In the 1960s, tankers and bulk carriers were taken off the stock of Deutsche Seereederei and formed VEB Deutfracht, an own, thought short lived, company. In 1974 both companies merged back again, from then on until 1989 using the name VEB Deutfracht/Seereederei, the abbreviation DSR and the old DSR flag [without the fly stripe]. In 1990, the container fleet of the company was the founding stock for today's DSR-Senator, the rest was sold to Ferdinand Laeisz GmbH.

Flag: horizontal blue-red-blue, with the letters DSR in the red part. Flag ratio 2:3, ratio of the three stripes 1:3:1.

I joined DSR in 1974, right after the merger with Deutfracht. The only flag I remember having used (and still own as a souvenir) is the one with the blue stripe only on top and bottom. I suppose the DSR 1952-1974 flag was changed after the merger, using the DSR letters and the Deutfracht layout.
