The "H" should be centred and so should the horizontal arm. See the flag on the Josef Nüsse site which has been confirmed by an actual sighting 14.11.2003 on the "Hual Trekker".

The company has offices in the United Kingdom, Denmark, Ireland, the Netherlands, Belgium and Sweden. The flag is white with two blue diagonal stripes in lower left and upper right corner and the blue S-like monogram of the company in the middle.

Formed as Simonsen & Slang hence the emblem, changing name in 1997 to the name under which their shipping operations had originally been made. Although the flag is shown like the logo on the company website, the Josef Nüsse site, under the old name, shows a flag with the diagonal bands going per bend sinister and it is possible to make out that the emblem is placed separately on both sides so as to look the same to the viewer. Why the bands are different is a mystery as Brown 1982 was showing the version shown here, unless it was changed early in the company's history. The blue shade would also appear to be dark.
