Oslo - white flag, hoisted blue "D"

Dyvi was founded in 1955 by Jan-Erik Dyvi. It was the first to construct a purpose-built pure car carrier (PCC) in the 1960s. The company pioneered the Norwegian offshore oil drilling industry in the 1970s, becoming the largest operator before selling this business to Smedvig ASA in 1988. In addition, it took the lead in introducing semi-submersible heavy lift vessels. More than 30 ships and offshore units have been built over the years, almost all of them prototypes and/or special-purpose vessels. The compagny have changed name from Jan-Erik Dyvi AS to Dyvi AS in 2004. web site: www.dyvi.no.

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 Ĺlesund 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.

Back on 13.11.2006 I pointed out that Lloyds 1912 actually domiciled this firm as based Soon not Boon and was likely to be Norwegian. I can now confirm that point having located it in a Lloyds Maritime Atlas which shows Soon on the Oslo Fjord, up from Moss and across from Tofte at 59 32 N 10 42 E.

Jørgen Jahre (1907-1998) was a nephew of the shipowner Anders Jahre (1891-1982). Jahre was President of the Football Association of Norway (1963-1965) and President of the Norwegian Olympic Committee (1965-1969).
Josef Nuesse's "Ships and Flags" website shows the house flag of Jørgen Jahre Shipping A/S, a Sandefjord-based company, as white with a cross made of a red horizontal arm and a light blue vertical arm, in the middle a blue square diamond charged with a white "J".
