Coat of Arms The Coat of Ai-ms is a heraldic reminder of the ship ' s name- sake, Capt John Young. The shield is a tri-color design. The upper portion is scarlet, middle white and the lower portion is Independence blue. Throughout Capt Young ' s service, he worked with France who was helping the then fledgling American nation in their struggle for independence. This association is shown by the fleur-de-lis in the upper part of the shield and the tri-color design representing the national colors of the U.S. and France. In Aug. 1780, enroute from the French Martinique to the United States aboard the 18 gun sloop-of-war SARATOGA, Capt Young captured four enemy vessels after a close en- gagement with two of the ships simultaneously. This deed is symbolized by the wavy bar with four stars. On 20 March 1781, Capt Young ' s ship the SARATOGA, sailing in com- pany with French and American ships, was lost at sea dur- ing a storm and never seen again. This loss is symbolized by the anchor without cable. The mast with sail hoisted is symbolic of the Continental sloop-of-war SARATOGA, Capt Young ' s last command. The coat of arms of the early Ameri- can Young family is represented by the red rose on the sail. The ship ' s motto: ' Trends La Mer Avec Courage " means To The Sea With Courage.
