The anchor is the symbol for hope and fortitude. One of the stories of the origin of this symbolism stems from shipping. During a storm the anchor was the only hope for a ship that was in need. The mooring of a ship through the anchor has to do with the steadiness.
Within the Christian faith the anchor forms together with the heart and cross the familiar 'faith, hope and love'.
This pewter badge is a wonderful item to give someone a gift. The symbolism gives the present an extra meaning.
