In 1974 at a Nantucket town meeting, the official flag was established based on a design by Dr. Edward B. Swain.
The whale, framed by a circle of rope symbolizes both the globe which Nantucket whale ships range and the compass rose which guided them across oceanic hunting grounds.
A harpoon or whale iron was added pointing to the magnetic north pole as seen from Nantucket.
Sterling silver with rose vermeil center.
Our new vermeil designs that are featured on our website have glass over the vermeil center.
The pendants on last call DO NOT have glass over the vermeil as this is a retired design.
