In ancient times, the anchor was viewed as a symbol that represented safety; because of this, Christians adopted the anchor as a symbol of hope. During the second and third centuries, the anchor was often found in the epitaphs of catacombs. When Christians were under Roman persecution, the anchor was a way to exhibit their religion under the watchful eye of the Romans, for other practicing Christians to see, by tattooing the symbol or wearing anchor jewelry. The anchor was chosen as it holds a ship in place, representing strength and security.
A deeper meaning to this purposeful symbol, is that it symbolizes one moving forward from a certain period in life or a safe place that they are in, by setting sail on a new journey. Just how it is lifted from the water of a port when a ship sets sail, an anchor raises an individual up by representing new, brighter adventures, allowing one to look forward of what’s to come and to follow their dreams and goals. A symbol representing strong connections, allows for a stable and secure person, who has strong beliefs and stays true to who they are.
