Symbolism

SHIELD

Dark blue and gold are the colors traditionally associated with the Navy, representing the sea and excellence. The red, white and blue diagonal colors of the background allude to the American flag and, with the bald eagle perched, represent “Freedom,” which is the class of Littoral Combat Ships that will be stationed in Mayport. The trident with the spike at the base and stylized mine signify naval readiness and strength, conveying the Squadron’s mission of surface, anti-submarine and mine warfare.

CREST

The feathered wreath honors the Timucua Indians who were the indigenous people of the area. The scenic view of the St. John’s River and the representation of the Ribault Monument commemorate French naval Officer Jean Ribault, who arrived with the first settlers to Mayport, Florida. This landmark also symbolizes the location of the organization.

SUPPORTERS

The crossed Navy officer sword and Navy Chief Petty Officer cutlass symbolizes the collaboration and teamwork of the leadership and crewmembers of the Littoral Combat Ships.

MOTTO

“HONOR ENIM, QUIA LIBERTAS” translates to “For Honor, For Freedom.”
