History of Ship Crest: The Shield The Crest The crest, outlined in blue and gold, stands for the outstand- ing achevevemts in battle of Admiral Burked against the naval power of Japan, a formidable foe. The fist and mace cymbolize the offensive and defensive power of the new destroyer. The mace, also a symbol of authority, represents Admiral Burke ' s outstanding service as Mitscher, an influential figure and mentor, for whom Admiral Burke served as Chief of Staff. Admiral Burke ' s Destroer Squadron 23, represented by the border of 23 ovals, was the only United States Destroyer Squandron awarded a Presidential Unit Citation, signified by the canton of blue, gold, and red. The ovals also refer to the year 1 923 in which Midshipman Burke was graduated from the United States Naval Academy at Annapolis. Twenty-three also reflects Admiral Burke ' s distinguished service on the saff of the Chief of Naval Operations as OP-23. The mounted figure of St. George recalls Admiral Burke ' s celebrated victory in the Battle of Cape St. George over Japanese naval forces. His mantle bears a gold cross for the Navy Cross awarded to the Admiral. The birch branch on the helmet, a reference to his name derived from his Scandinavian heritage, the red sea Dragon symbolizes Burke ' s command. It is gorged with the two gold stars he was aw arded for outstanding service. The lance impaling the dragon ignifies ordnance on target. The capabilites of the new destroer, the mos t powerful and survivalbe ever built, are signified by the full armor and equipment f teh warrior St. George. The Admiral ' s nickname " 3 1 -Knot Burke " is recalled by the number 3 1 on the horse ' s harness
