Schiffahrts und Befrachtungs Kontor Marker GmbH - White with two narrow, yellow, horizontal stripes running near the top and the bottom of the flag and a blue 'M' shifted to the hoist. The base of the 'M' extends to the hoist and to the fly, thus forming another horizontal stripe.

[Midgard AG & Co. KG (Shipping Company, Germany)] image by Jorge Candeias, 14 Mar 1999

Midgard AG & Co. KG - Divided per saltire, white on top and bottom and blue at hoist and fly, with a white oval in the centre, bordered blue and charged with a blue snake (with a huge head, and an even bigger eye, in relative terms).
Jorge Candeias, 14 Mar 1999

Midgard snake (Midhgardhsormr) keeps the world in place by clasping it into its rings. When the snake relaxes, a generalized flood shall occur and the world shall disappear during the so-called Ragnarok —Fate-of-the-Powers, very often mispelled Ragnarokr, Twilight-of-the-Powers— Midgard snake is compared to Yggdrasill, the ash tree which supports the world with its branches. When Yggdrasill collapses, the world shall disappear. Source: Encyclopaedia Universalis.
