Deppe Lines

[Deppe Lines] image by Jarig Bakker, 5 Nov 2003

From a Google cache (news flash from 24 Sept.) we learn that:
"Deppe Line will withdraw from liner shipping effective 31 October. To confirm with the FMC status of vessel operator, the Hamburg-based H. Schuldt-owned carrier formally chartered a ship (lately a 3,000 TEU unit) from its long-standing partner Lykes Lines (CP Ships).
Deppe, which had its roots in Belgium (Armement Deppe) used to offer space on three weekly box services between N. Europe and the US East Coast and Gulf, including Mexico."

I do not know anything about the degree of relationship between Deppe Lines (DE) and Armement Deppe, but anyway, here goes:
Company website: The Delta points to "Deppe", surely, and the choice of colours may not be accidental.
A quick look did not reveal anything on withdrawing from the shipping business... But if the flag waves on, who are we to complain?

[Detjen houseflag] image by Jarig Bakker, 6 Nov 2003

Dov Gutterman reported the link of Detjen - flag: white with red bordered white diamond charged with black capital D. At the history page of that site the black thingies at top and bottom on a Macromedia Flash image are replaced by black shadows underlining the flag flying. On that same history page is another houseflag: white with a vertical chevron with in the center a capital D. It's black and white, though...

Deutsche Bundesbahn Ferries

[State Flag, State Ensign and War Flag (Germany)] image by Marcus Schmöger

As far as I know, German ferries in the Baltic Sea in the past wore the state ensign, not the civil ensign, as they belonged to the Deutsche Bundesbahn (federal railways).
