European coastal towns and islands supplied the bulk of sailors over the years. Gone for months or even years their return was a joyful and festive occasion for family and friends.

To announce a safe homecoming a small iron or brass anchor was displayed next to the family cottage entrance. The local priest or pastor often blessed these little anchors during church service before the sailor left for a new and uncertain voyage.
