The Jaegers homepage is still off the air, however I had already checked
out Jaegers Combitank BV, the Rotterdam
subsidiary (formerly Dordrecht I believe). The local website is unavailable
too, or it may have been suspended - Fortunately the Vlootschouw pages
show the local Jaeger variant, for instance here:
on the page dedicated to tanker vessel ‘Almeria’. This time, the differentiating
elements are ‘JC’ (blue initials) and the Dutch national colours (lines
around the lozenge).

In my original message I only had to offer a drawing, now there is a
photo (still modest – table flag only) confirming this local variant of
the Jaegers archivexillum!
See image, original picture found – where else – on German eBay: no.290193777621 (end 2 Jan 2008) put up by “shipflag”, dimensions given as approx. 16 cm x 24 cm.
Not shown on the drawing is the white fimbriation surrounding the lozenge rim in the (Dutch) national colours, so we gain a little extra information.

Jumbo Scheepvaart, Willemstad - white flag; in center three BWB horizontal
stripes, interrupted in the center by a white square bordered blue with
a red elephant. At present Jumbo Shipping has its main office in Rotterdam;
red Jumbo is still its trademark.
