Been following the knot discussion with interest (being a sailor myself), but for an appropriate contribution, I needed this:

:lol: Very good Michael! Although we need to see the ends really or it could be a reef knot...

to close your bag you would pull the loop, then you would tie this knot to lock it tight in the loop, against the bag! try it on a loop of rope?
That's interesting, so it's tied on a bight? Not heard of that use before, nor is it mentioned in Ashley's or online: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Figure-eight_knot

I'd use a slipped overhand-on-bight in that situation.

For the last image, I'd call it a reef knot, as I used two hairs, what made the knotting somewhat simpler.
And I'd call it "Kreuzknoten" over here in Germany :).
