Ships Upon Sunrise Sea - Pink Saturday

This is the front of a small folder in which our darling little Grammie kept things she treasured...a rose drawn by my own Mum when she was six, a letter from Sissy to me, a note from her sister, our Aunt Tillie--each of these things were a window into what was precious in her eyes.

A true treasure trove of loving memories.

Does anyone out there know what, if any, significance there is to the emblem on the ship's flag?  Two crossed holly leaves with four dots!  Interesting at any rate.  

For more fabulous pink Saturday surprises be sure to visit Bev!

Isn't that an interesting emblem. Sure beats the pirate skull and bones! Lovely folder.

It is so beautiful, sissie. Grammie certainly left us a treasure trove, didn't she?

I wish I could answer your question about the flag, but I don't have an answer for you. Maybe I will go google and see if I can find one. Happy Pink Saturday, Char

HAPPY 2ND PINK SATURDAY BIRTHDAY BETH
YOU AND CLYTIE HAVE SHARED SUCH WONDERFUL TREASURES FROM YOUR GRAMMIE. AN AMAZING WOMAN.
I ASK MY HUSBAND ABOUT THE FLAG....HE SAID THE FLAGS ON THE SHIP WERE TO IDENTIFY FROM A DISTANCE WHO THEY WERE...HE SAID IT COULD BE THE COMPANY THAT OWNED THE SHIP BUT FOR ME TO GOOGLE IT...I LOVE RESEARCH.
HUGS AND BLESSINGS
SIMPLY DEBBIE

Actually, it is probably the thistle rather than crossed holly leaves. I tried to find holly leaves in heraldry and was not able to but the thistle leave resembles what you may call holly. The four dots would have some significance but I didn't spend the time to look it up. You can look for it under
"Heraldry" and learn more about that.
