the flag on the funnel is the wrong way round
How come , it appears to be running the same way on both sides as it should !
Flag always appears to slope up from left to right. On one side of Bluestar 1 it is sloping down from left to right. See comparisons in attached.

A logo like that should always appear the same no matter what the direction of travel, so the flag should slope up from left to right.

So on Blue Star it is showing as a flag would look from both sides, and on the rest of the fleet it's showing as a logo should , correct !

If this was the lifeboats going back on today, looks like the have painted out the funnel logo that everyone has commented on.

Someone was out late last night with a bucket of green paint! She's dressed too from mast to funnel, so looks like she is being handed over soon.

Either the person painting has a great understanding of how these things should work or they just painted it wrong.

Either way it's always nice to see logos reversed on the funnel markings on one side so both sides reflect forward movement or both point forward. As well as BR/Sealink, P&O and Brittany Ferries used to do this and it was a nice quirky feature of their liveries.

No prizes, but what links Blue Star 1 and several other vessels on the Irish Sea ?

I guess that this new service will start effectively with Irish Ferries buying or chartering ex-Calais Seaways, which is due to cease service with DFDS in June 2021.

Built in the same shipyard?

It's basically a land bridge with Inishmore operating the connection between Dover and Calais .
