Funnels vs. house flags

Among the shipping lines covered in the 1934 flag article in National Geographic magazine [gsh34],

  • some had funnel markings which very close resembled their house flags,
  • some had funnel markings which had only a general similarity to their house flags and
  • some had funnel markings which had nothing in common with their house flags.

Ratios of house flags

I have several charts and books with houseflags with dimensions varying from 1:2 to 4:5, but it is safe to assume that most (unless otherwise specified) are 2:3.
