The flag of German New Guinea Company depicts a black lion in the fly.
The lion holds red something with its right hand. It seems fleurs-de-lis
as French symbol used by German Company. I have never seen red fleurs-de-lis.
Does someone know what the lion hold ?

The lion holds a red fleurs-de-lis. This symbol was taken out of the
Coat of arms of the Deutsch Neuguina-Kompagnie's founder Privy Councillor
of Commerce Adolph von Hansemann.
