Belaya River Shipping Company
Бельское речное пароходство / Bel'skoye rechnoye parokhodstvo

Eugene Ipavec, 9 Jun 2006

I should be plowing (or navigating 8-) ) through websites such as this one - Russian River Ships - but one at a time, as they say. Nevertheless, have a look here: Caption: "the pennant of Belaya River Shipping Company (2005)" as found on this page:

According to Britannica, the Belaya - a Bashkortostan river - is a tributary of the Kama River (which flows into the Volga):

As to the company, I'm only too happy to quote this site: "The Belaya River shipping line has a large number of passenger, cargo, tug, roads-tug and other vessels, barges, and 'river-sea' ships, which can sail in the Azov and Black seas right up to the mouth of the Danube. Vessels of the shipping line carry passengers and freights along the Volga, Kama, Don, Belaya and other rivers of Russia. (...) The BELAYA RIVER SHIPPING LINE organizes tourist trips and carries 120,000 passengers during navigation time."

Webmaster of the RRS site is Aleksey S. Yablonskiy who puts up his own photos, such as the above, accepts contributions, and provides interesting links.

There is a house flag page on his site, too, with the important remark "Only the soviet-time inland shipping companies are listed, whose history has become the part of the russian river fleet's history. Since 90's some of them divided into smaller enterprises; many new shipping companies were founded."

Eastern Russia Shipping Co. Ltd.

Well, I don’t really know from the graphic at the webpage what is really the company flag. Could be white with the letters in blue, the one I drew, white with "ERMA" coloured in degradé from blue above to red below, or white with both letters.

Northern Shipping Company
Severnoe Morskoe Poroqodstvo | Северное Морское Пороходство

Considering their webpage on company history, I suspect this company is the same as soviet Northern Steamship Co.. If so, they changed the flag, as usual, but it is still to be known the house flag of this company in pre-soviet times.

Volga United Steamship Co.
Волжское объединённое пароходство | Volẑskoe obwedinënnoe paroqodstvo

VOP house flag
image by Victor Lomantsov, 12 Aug 2000

Soviet era Volga United Steamship Co. Red pennant with white star. I saw this in magazines of the 1970ies. I think it really used until the 1990ies.
Victor Lomantsov, 12 Aug 2000

I have seen this one in use on the top mast of some passenger ferries in Cheboksary (by the Volga), several times during the last couple of years.

Yenisey River Steamship Company
Eniseĭskoe reĉnoe paroqodstvo | Енисейское речное пароходство

A flag construction sheet on line that belongs to a water-ways company inside the Russian Federation.
Zachary Harden, 06 Nov 2005

This is new flag of the Joint-stock Society Enisey River Steamship Company (Енисейское речное пароходство) on the Enisey River in Central Siberia and in the Arctica.
Mikhail Revnivtsev, 06 Nov 2005

Which company cruised the Enisey in the soviet times? If it was North-West State River Steamship Co., then the logo-on-white design might have been influenced by the soviet era predecessor company…
