Heraldic Naval Crown

The Naval Crown (in Latin corona navalis), was a gold crown awarded to the first man who boarded an enemy ship during a naval engagement. In style, the crown was made of gold and surmounted with the prows of ships.

In heraldry a naval crown is mounted atop the shields of coats of arms of the naval vessels and other units belonging to some navies.
