A quick question, probably easily answered.

Were the merchant ships during WWII all painted grey? I've seen pictures of ships during the war, and they have their funnels painted in their house colours.

Also, were house flags flown during the war?

Thanks.

As little as I've learned is that neutral nations kept their ships painted as always, with the flag of the nation painted large on each side. I have not found confirmation of this, but American coastal ships may have kept their colors, including those that had to transit the Panama Canal.
