A black and light blue compass-card ornamented in the top with what looks like a couple of joysticks (?) on a yellow field.
Jorge Candeias, 2 Febuary 1999

D'Amico SocietÓ di Navigazione S.p.A. formed 1952 by 2 of the brothers from Fratelli d'Amico. This flag is shown as a logo on the company website and I have recorded it from a paper ad in 1977. It, or a simpler variation, is also shown as the emblem on the funnels but according to Brown (1958, 1982 and 1995) the flag is yellow with a narrow blue bend.

Euroceanica


image by Jorge Candeias, 4 March 1999

White with a logo centered, consisting of a greyish blue "E" to the left with the central bar crossing a green globe-like device and ending in an arrow-point.
Jorge Candeias, 4 March 1999

Full name Euroceanica Investments B.V. and from their phone number the company is Swiss being based Geneva They appear to be more of an investment company rather than shipping being linked with Rimorchiatori Riuniti S.p.A.

Finarge


image by Jorge Candeias, 31 March 1999

A triangular flag with the tip cutted out (is there a specific name for this shape?). White with a dark red cross and the black initials "RR" in the first quarter.
Jorge Candeias, 31 March 1999

The "RR" on the flag presumably comes from the Rimorchiatori Riuniti S.p.A. connection of which it is a subsidiary, operating the offshore vessels and deep sea tugs of the group, the full name being Finarge-Armamento Genovese S.r.l. Genovese S.p.A. I have doubts about whether the pennant has a square point. The company website image does look like it but as it is small and also depicts a waving flying flag, a false impression may have resulted.

Finbeta


image by Jarig Bakker, 11 July 2004

From <www.finbeta.com>: "Finbeta S.p.a. is an Italian shipping company based in Savona and controlled by the Bertani family which operates a fleet of chemical parcel tankers".
The flag at this site is an horizontal red-yellow-red-yellow-red flag charged with red logo on white sqare.

From Scott, R.M.: The Caltex book of Flags and Funnels, Capetown, Caltex Africa Ltd. (1959):  
#190 Fratelli d'Amico, Rome - yellow flag charge with kind of blue Maltese cross.
Jarig Bakker, 9 January 2005

It is: Or, a Maltese cross and a roundel at the center point, azure.
Lewis A. Nowitz, 9 January 2005

Going by the company website (<www.damicofratelli.it>) the core of the cross is white, not blue and most sources so show.

Following the link found by Joe Mc Millan - The Mystic Seaport Foundation <www.mysticseaport.org>, we can reach the 1911 Lloyd's flagbook, whose full title is (after the scan of the cover): 'Lloyd's book of house flags and funnels of the principal steamship lines of the world and the house flags of various lines of sailing vessels', published at Lloyd's Royal Exchange. London. E.C.
The house flags of sailing vessels are shown on pages 133 to 136. On p. 133 we have:
#2031. Fratelli A.A.G. (or O?) Semides, Genoa. The flag is blue with the letters F S (white).
Ivan Sache, 14 January 2004

Title is Fratelli A. & G. Semidei, "Fratelli" translating as "Brothers".
