HHLA is the former Hamburger Hafen- und Lagerhaus AG, today Hamburger Hafen- und Logistics AG. It is THE cargo- and logistics-company in Hamburg port.
Description of flag: It is a white and blue flag divided by saltire with a white edged red roundel in the centre of flag. The roundel shows the "Hamburg-gate", which is also part of the cities flag. Shifted to the roundel are white capitals with black edges "H" two times in the upper white field and "L" and "A" in the lower white field

HHLA variant

HHLA: I saw this new version first time some days after the FIFA-Wordchampionship 2006 in the harbour area. At companies HQ in Hamburg-St.Annen they do hoist the old version until today. The flag is more or less the same as the old one but the Hamburg-gate has been modified. The pinnacles have disappeared as well as other lines. The two side towers have been simplified to mere rectangles. The door is open, probably to promote Hamburg as the city, which is open-minded to all the world. The current logo of the city also has an open door.
