Previous Flag

image by Eugene Ipavec, 16 December 2009

Here is the original Nüsse image in question showing the panel in better detail and which is probably the original flag with the Brown version with its stylised logo presumably replacing it. I do not know when, but the logo certainly appears on their website <www.lagoven.net> whilst the company itself  is a subsidiary of the state owned Petróleos de Venezuela S.A. [PDVSA] and originated 1/1976 to take over the nationalised local assets of Exxon and has survived various restructurings which saw most of its fellow subsidiaries disappear.
Originally it had a fleet of tugs and chemical tankers but these were transferred in 1992 to a new associate company, PDV Marina S.A.
Lagoven does still have a shipping context with a fleet of pontoons and crew/supply vessels.
Maraven S.A. for which the flag is next given is a similar associate but with a fleet of pontoons and platforms.
I doubt if there is much flag flying done by either. PDV Marina S.A. is more likely but whilst I have their funnel design a flag has not appeared to date.
