Insignia: USS SARATOGA (CVA-60)
Title: Insignia: USS SARATOGA (CVA-60)
Caption: Insignia was received in 1958. It features a fighting gamecock, traditional symbol of U.S. ships named SARATOGA, standing on an outline shield, representing the shield of the federal government. The silhouette behind is that of the CVA-61. Upon the shield itself are a symbolic crown and a trident, reflecting SARATOGA's claim as queen of the dreadnaughts. The trident is the symbol of her domain. The dominant colors are red and yellow. The former stands for the blood of thousands of Americans, spilled to maintain our freedoms. The latter represents the SARATOGA's readiness to thwart aggression. The Latin motto is translated: "Unconquered fighting cock."
