Stavanger - white flag, red 5-pointed star.
Jarig Bakker, 20 January 2006

The company originated in 1915 as Peder Smedvig Shipping Company. During World War II, 4/5 of their fleet was lost. Presently heavily involved in offshore drilling operations.
Phil Nelson, 20 January 2006

A photo of the company's house flag is presented on the Smedvig family's website.
Josef Nuesse's "Ships and Flags" website shows the company's house flag as swallow-tailed.

Well, it's apparently a photograph, but I don't know what it is. However, we quote Phil Nelson, 20 January 2006:
"Presently heavily involved in offshore drilling operations." While that may have been true at the time, in the course of that year they withdrew from the offshore industry.

Josef Nuesse's "Ships and Flags" website shows the company's house flag with a black "B" and a black diagonal.
The company and its house flag originate in the shipyard founded in 1925 in Svelvik by Yngvar P. Berg. Relocated in 1931 to Drammen, the shipyard was renamed accordingly, from Svelvil Slip & Verksted to Drammen Slip & Verksted. In 1954, Peter Y. Berg, the founder's son, increased the development of the shipyard; in the 1970s; the shipyard, managed by Berg father and son, released 2 to 3 ships per year. In 1972, the building and repairing activities were allocated to two different branches of the company. The shipyard specialized in the building of big (150 m in length), refrigerated ships for the swift (average speed, 23 knots) transportation of fruit, known as "Drammen-type". There were 43 Drammen-types ship built, of which 31 in the Berg shipyard. The last ship, with hull number 101, was released in 1986. Since then, the company, still chaired by Peter Y. Berg and his two sons, Yngvar P. Berg and Christian A. Berg, specialized in ship repairing.
The house flag of Drammen Slip & Verksted is similar to the house flag of the Peter Y. Berg shipping company, with the company's logo in stead of the "B".

The descriptions are different. Does anyone have that 1995 edition of Brown's to check that's what it looks like?
As I read it, what he's still leader of is the holding. And it does say that all activity is in the company set up for the repair work, Drammen Skipsreparasjon AS., but doesn't mention whether that's still limited to repairs.
It looks like they are now at http://www.drammen-slip.no/, which is more complex than we were led to believe.
What about the shipping company? Every time I find something about a Peter Y. Berg ship, it always seems to have a separate shipping company set up just for that one ship. Has there ever even been a Peter Y. Berg shipping company, or do we have to look at all these separate companies that may all have their own charge in the flag?

Pilen

[Pilen]
image by Klaus-Michael Schneider, 20 May 2010

Pilen (English: THE ARROW) was an only-passenger fast ferry catamaran, which ran a service between Copenhagen and Malmö. The service probably was discontinued after a railway and bus connection between the two cities had been established a few years ago. I canít guarantee the existence of a flag, my image is based upon the company logo as displayed upon a ticket. Description of  flag: It is a red flag with a white arrowhead pointing upwards over two white waves.
