Black Star house flag

Znamierowski [zna00] shows on p. 245 the houseflag of Black Star Line. The flag is horizontally divided green - red - yellow - red - green, in proportion 1:1:4:1:1. A black star is placed in the middle of the yellow stripe. Smith [smi75b] says that Black Star Line Ltd. operates in Accra, the capital of Ghana. The Ghanean origin of the flag can be easily guessed from the flag design.

The black star on a shipping line’s flag was the source for the black star on the Ghanaian flag, but these two flags are of two different companies with the same name: the American Black Star Line (1919-1923) and the Ghanean Black Star Line.
