Queensland Steam Shipping Company

[Queensland Steam Shipping Co. flag] image by Jonathan Dixon, 5 Aug 2005

The Queensland Steam Shipping Co. had been formed in 1887 by British India Steam Navigation with its flag being red with a white saltire which was the BI colours and basic design in reverse. In 1887 it was amalgamated with the Australasian Steam Navigation Co. to form the Australasian United Steam Navigation Co. Ltd..

This British India Steam Navigation Co. page shows a red swallowtail, white saltire, rather than a rectangular version. The BIShip page is the only source showing the swallowtail I am aware of (it may well be erroneous).
