Ferry boat stop flag cross oars?

Hi,


Can anyone tell me the meaning of the flag which looks like two crossed oars? Does it signify end of services for day, bad weather etc?

Just curious

Thanks,

Andrew

Where? Lake Zurich?

Considering they run even after sunset a flag for the last run does not make any sense.

May be the flag of Thalwil? But why would that one be near the ferry, on a ferry, or ferry terminals?
