Tokyo - white flag, red standing raguly crossbeam. (shortened arms compared with the flag above).
Jarig Bakker, 18 February 2006

Kyokuyo Hogei K.K. was formed 1937 with the translation being the Polar Seas Whaling Ltd. It changed name 1971 to K.K. Kyokuyo, withdrawing from whaling in 1976 and from deep sea trawling in 1993 according to one source but Lloyds 2000 still showed it owning some fishing vessels.

Kyokuyo Shipping Co., Ltd.

Kyokuyo Shipping Co. Ltd. This flag is similar to that which should be shown for Kyoei Tanker K.K. The name is presumably a translation of Kyokuyo Kaiun K.K. of which I can find no real candidates for a flag. As Stewart has been the source of most these flags I wonder whether there has been some confusion and transposition of the Kyoei flag.

Kyoritsu Kisen K.K. appears to have been a post World War 2 company which ceased in the later 1960s.
