Interesting Facts & Figures
  • In 1949, the Dalerdyk (former Damsterdyk) completed a comprehensive refit, which gave her more powerful engines, a lowered funnel, changes to her cargo handling equipment, and upgrades of her passenger facilities to a higher and more modern standard.

  • Maritime flags flown on HAL ships include:

    • National flag (or Ensign) - the flag related to the country of registration, for HAL typically the Netherlands.

    • House flag - a flag identifying which company owns the vessel. HAL’s initial house flag design consisted of green-white-green horizontal bands with the letters NASM (Nederlandsch-Amerikaansche Stoomvaart Maatschappij or Holland-America Line) in black on the white band.

    • Signal flags - a system of international maritime signal flags for each letter of the alphabet, and pennants for the numerals.

    • Courtesy flag - flown by a visiting ship in foreign waters as a token of respect, e.g. the Canadian flag whilst in Vancouver.
       

  • Dressed overall with signal flags and pennants strung from bow to stern to celebrate the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, the Dalerdyk is pictured ready to take on a load of Canadian wheat at the Vancouver Harbour Commissioners No. 1 Grain Jetty on Tuesday, June 3, 1953.
