THE SHIP'S INSIGNIA
In the ship's insignia we have sought to symbolize those outstanding qualiti6S
and salient characteristics which our ship embodies and which make her unique.
Quite naturally, therefore, a prominent feature of the design is the large number
one, ANNAPOLIS is the first, Communications Major Relay ship in the world.
Secondly, we have -employed the shield, the time-honored symbol of strength and
the defensive bulwark, as the basic form of our emblem in order to indicate ANNA-
POLIS' prominent role in the network of national defense and the strength and
reliability of the vital service which she provides. Symbolic of the fact that this
service can be delivered to any command, afloat or ashore, we have chosen to use
the Navy's blue and gold, and lastly, in choosing our motto 'CVOX MARIS "
"Voice of the Sea," we desired to indicate the far-reaching, completely mobile,
entirely self contained and inde e d
- p n ent nature of our ship in the performance of her
duties. In ANNAPOLIS, the Navy has truly found a powerful voice, a voice which
can range far over the oceans of the ld h
D v wor , w ich can reach into the remotest
corners of the globe. The Navy has carried its own voice to the sea.
