Sailors would be gone for months or even years, and their return home was often a joyful and festive occasion for their family and friends. European coastal towns would announce the safe homecoming of their sailor friends by displaying a small iron or brass anchor next to the family cottage entrance. The priest would then often bless these little achors during church services before the sailor left for another new and uncertain voyage, to wish them luck and a safe return. These anchors have come to symbolise hope, family ties and friendship for seafaring folk.
