The meaning and origin of the Maersk Group logo


P.M. Mller (1836-1927), who was a deeply religious Christian, attached a blue banner with a whiteseven pointed star on both sides of the black chimney on the steamship Laura when his wife recovered from illness. In a letter to his wife, P.M.

Mller explained in October 1886, "The little star on the chimney is a memory of the night when I prayed for you and asked for a sign: If a star would appear in the gray and cloudy sky, it would mean that the Lord answers prayers". The same star later became the logo for the Maersk Group.
