The house flag of De Wit Bunkering repeats the company logotype; it is a blue flag with a white oval containing on its right
side the curved part of a letter D in red, and three white blue-rimmed
wavelets in front: to the right of this logo, DE WIT in blue and
underneath the name, BUNKERING in red, smaller letters, right aligned.
The flag can be seen hoisted on the Paggader on the Vlootschouw website.
There is evidence of an earlier company called C.H. De Wit on the Vlootschouw website. A pennant is shown on that page but the ship Dessel pictured on the same page flies a rectangular version of the flag. On the Binnenvaart website, the ship Lies flies the pennant. The rectangular version of the flag seems to have some (unreadable) red words along the upper edge.
A sightinhg in the port of Antwerp in December 2006 shows a blue pennant with the present logotype near the hoist and the name DE WIT in the fly, white italic letters in the font seen on the company website. The pennant was flying on the bow of a moored barge, in other words, by a customer.Jan Mertens, 15 December 2006
