Coat of Arms & Motto

South Seas Merchants Mariners’s coat of arms depicts the Saint George’s Cross with five anchors. Indeed, the anchor was a popular symbol because it was not only part of the ship, but because, just like Christians, sailors liked the connection this symbol had to stability and strength. Putting down an anchor also represented the safe end of a long journey. The company’s motto, A Mari Usque ad Mare comes from the Latin Vulgate translation of Psalm 72:8 in the Bible meaning From Sea to Sea.

Today, we remain deeply committed to recognise and respond to our responsibilities as corporate citizen in all areas of our business, especially by engaging fully in the public sphere, participating in industry and professional bodies and plays an active part in the wider communities within which we operate.
