Ah ... j'ai pas trouvé les armes des iles galapagos ... Tu aurais un lien à partager, pour nous instruire ?

The shield is quartered. The chief sinister (upper left) quarter shows some volcanic cones in sable on an azure sea. The largest cone is in eruption. This tells of the volcanic origin of the islands and the present activitiy of some of them.

In the chief dexter (upper right) a ship is depicted sailing over the ocean. It is supposed to represent the Mercedes, the ship that was sent out to take possession of the islands in 1832. The Mercedes, named after the wife of Ecuador's first president, Juan José Flores, was a schooner, while the vessel shown on the coat of arms is a hermaphrodite brig, a mistake that can be forgiven a landlubber.

At the honor point is the image of a tortoise, the animal after which the islands are named, Galápago being the Spanish name for this reptile. Officially, the islands have been known since 1892 as “Archipiélago de Colón” but the name Galápagos has persisted and even appears occasionally on some official documents.

The base sinister (lower left) shows a cornucopia representing the rich potential of the islands. The base dexter (lower right) shows the Galápagos flag, in a deeper green than is correct.

The shield is surrounded by a bordure, the upper part of which is azure with thirteen stars in argent (silver), representing the thirteen largest islands. (Personally, I divide the group into six major and nine minor islands, not counting the smaller islands and rocks.) At the division between the upper and lower parts of the bordure is shown the equatorial latitude, telling that the islands are on the equator. The lower half of the bordure is in or (gold) with the date 1832 at its lower point. This is the year when the islands came under Ecuador.

The upper part of the coat of arms is decorated with two olive branches, one on either side, with a burning torch in the middle—the light of our lofty aspirations.

Etape 6

 

Départ vendredi 19h GMT, comme d'hab.

 

Pas de BO car il aurait été positionné au milieu de la nuit vendredi au moment du contournement de l'ile d'Espanola. Peu d'intérêt donc.

 

Have fun!

Hawai = Pearl Hearbor (12.07.1941) - et -- 9.11.(2001) =  WTC / Pentagon attacks  -   Hommage (?)

Hahaha non c'est un pur hasard (je me suis rendu compte que le départ serait le 9.11 en codant la course), mais j'aurais aimé y penser !

 

On passera au large de Pearl Harbor au WP1 ceci dit, et l'arrivée se fera à Honolulu.
