Baltic Flax Voyages 1677 - 1893

  For UK Coastal Shipping click on here

  The purpose of this table is to show that NP, WK, WU designations all relate to Flax bales up to 1828 regardless of the port of shipping ... NP does not mean Narva Port and all of the flax bales coming out of St Petersburg and all the other ports up to 1828 were stamped NP, this being the State Inspection Flax Tax Paid Code for flax shipped from the Baltic, regardless of which port of shipping.  For many decades in the 18th & 19th centuries, Russia was by far the world's greatest exporter of flax via the ports of Archangel, Konigsberg, Kronstadt, Libnau, Memel, Narva, Pernau, Reval, Riga, St Petersburg, Tilsit,  Windau and Great Britain was Russia's major customer.

         Flax                                      Hemp  

          Hemp bale seals before 1828 regardless of port of shipping had SPB designations.
