Those looking for additional visual aids for classroom presentation of that perennial "consideration for a modification" case, Alaska Packers v. Domenico, here (left ) is the flag of the Alaska Packers Association. The flag was flown from the ships sailed back and forth between San Francisco and the salmon fields of Alaska. According to the web site, House Flags of Shipping Companies, the flag was sometimes flown without the letter "A." The flag design would have been painted on the funnels as well as flown at the staff. A slightly different version is also shown here.
At the upper right is the label from a can of Alaska Packers' Chief Brand Alaska Chum Salmon. product of the Alaska Packers. Feel free to enjoy its "lightly salted" flavor.
