The houseflag of Bos & Kalis NV, Sliedrecht (NL) is on Heinrich Fischbach's site (link doesn't exist anymore, see below). It is now situated in Papendrecht.

And here it is: a diagonal bicolour of yellow in upper fly and blue in lower hoist. Simple but nice.

Boskalis developments

Mr Fischbach’s site is no longer available (he died last year). Links to site of the dredging enterprise (Dutch and English, respectively; third url leads to history section): here, here, and here.
The simple house flag is now adorned with a white stylized crown and company name in the lower hoist (blue triangle), as seen here:
- as a drawing;
- on a photo, flying (17 Dec 2006 of this weblog, about ? down).
Image was shown from a Marktplaats (Dutch auction site) offer, accessed 26 Dec 2007, no. 13701326613 put up by “Skipflag”.  Dimensions given as 0.90 m x 1.40 m.

A quite recent development is that most of the fleet will be flagged out to Cyprus although the company will remain Dutch and keep its seat at Papendrecht.  Short article (in Dutch).
Until now Boskalis’s vessels sailed under eight different flags.

...Hopefully not all at once.
