It's hard to find the hometown, but a Google search
makes it quite possible that it was Askerøyen in Norway.

Alesund - blue flag, red diamond outlined white; white 5-pointed star.
Jarig Bakker, 4 February 2006
The company J. Hagenæs Shipping AS is still in business and the flag can be
seen flying on the office building in Ålesund where the company is based.
From personal observations I would say the diamond is larger than in the
drawing Jarig sent: It touches the edges of the cloth.
