COAT OF ARMS The MOBILE insignia depicts and interweaves the relationship of her mission and the origin of her name. The four stars located in the border signify that the amphibious cargo ship MOBILE is the fourth United States ship to bear the name. The five flags serving as the background for the shield are reproductions taken from the seal of the City of Mobile. Alabama, for which the ship is named. The French Flag signifies the City ' s founding in 1702 by France. In 1763, Mobile was ceded to England only to be captured in 1 779 by Spain, who controlled it until 1 800 when the territory was regained by France. Thomas Jefferson acquired the city for the United States in 1 803 through the Louisiana Purchase. The Con- federate Flag represents MOBILE being a key shipping point for the South during the War Between the States. The shield occupying the major portion of the inner circle represents the armor which is the distinguished mark of the fighting man. The bend or diagonal stripe extending across the shield, dividing it into two portions, depicts the Navy and Marine Corps team concept which is fully realized in amphibious operations. The assault boat coxswains symbol represents the ability of USS MOBILE to land her troops and equipment through the combined efforts of her men, boats, and modern cargo handling systems. The alligator, with its ability to fight on both land and sea, has long been the adopted symbol of the amphibious forces. He is in a rampant position representing a raging posture of attack with jaws open and teeth bared.
