Created by NZ Master Carver the Fouled Anchor
The Fouled Anchor has become a common symbol used to represent sailors or those who work on the ocean. In historical terms however it is similar to the US Navy Chief Petty Officer emblem. It is also the official seal of the Lord High Admiral of Britain, such as HRH Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh, and is flown on the ship carrying the monarch to sea. It is also flown during the launching of a warship of the Royal Navy. It is often used to represent "soldiers of the sea".
