Hospital-Church Ship "De Hoop"

Andries van der Loo sent me images of the "Hospitaalkerkschip De Hoop" (hospital-church ship "The Hope"). This project was started in 1898 by the "Nederlandsche Vereniging ten behoeve van zeelieden van elke nationaliteit (1898-1996)" (Dutch Society for the benefit of sailors of each nationality). It was primarily for crews of herring-cutters, who could go to church on Sundays, and get free medical treatment. Its first ship was a two-master with two foresails; its last ship was a
rather elegant version of a trawler.
Flag: dark-blue charged with white "HKS"; in the canton the Dutch flag (without fimbriation, so that the blue stripe forms part of the main field). This flag was used as a distinguishing flag, possibly since it first sailed.

Fimbriated flag

Mr. Zuydgeest from Vlaardingen, a fishery expert par excellence provided a convincing photo, taken on "Vlaggetjesdag" in 1962, when the "De Hoop" was moored at the Koningin Wilhelminahaven in Vlaardingen. It shows clearly a white fimbriation around the Dutch flag in the canton. That fimbriation was not (or hardly) noticable on the images sent by Andries van de Loo.

Old flag

[De Hoop old flag] image by Jarig Bakker, 3 Aug 2005

André van de Loo was fortunate in finding an old captain of the Hospitalchurchship "De Hoop", Mr. Rog in Scheveningen, who was a captain for 28 years. Mr. Rog showed a photo with a sailing "De Hoop" in 1911, showing the "HKS"-flag like the one I sent earlier, and a name-pennant of "De Hoop".
However the "HKF"-flag was IMO different from the one André showed earlier: the canton shows the Dutch flag, with a brighter shade of blue than the main field, and with proportion c. 1:2.

Name pennant

The name-pennant is c. 1:3, blue with white "DE HOOP" in bold letters.
