The Hall Corporation of Canada Ltd., also known as HALCO, was founded in 1918 in Montreal, Canada, as the Canadian subsidiary of George Hall Coal Company. The Hall Corporation had many types and styles of flags using various colors. This four and half-foot rectangular flag was the earliest version of the HALCO house flag. The company fleet was primarily tankers heavily involved in oil transfer across the Great Lakes. The company existed for nearly seventy years before it ceased operations in 1987. Be sure to check back at “Waving Through Time”  to see how the company redesigned its flag over the years.
