"The Three Mackerels"

"The Three Mackerels" is the office flag of Jebsen & Co. , and this logo was painted on all ships funnels in the Jebsen fleet.  Here the logo painted on "Emma Jebsen's" funnel.
"The Three Mackerels" are inspired from the city of Aabenraa's weapon, which also displays three mackerels, but all swimming in the same direction, while one of them in the Jebsen logo swims in the opposite direction.
For fun we used to say , that the symbolism behind that was, that two of the mackerels were on their way out in the big world to make money, while the third one was returning with the profit!  Therefore different directions - - -
