Dungeness RNLI Lifeboat Station The Story of The Standard Every standard and every part of it tells a story and this is the story of this standard The white represents purity of mind and spirit All will be aided regardless of who or what they are The blue the sky above us and the sea on which we sail The red the cross of St George, the patron saint of warriors not the one who fight in wars and conflict but those who battle the seas. The gold is for remembrance. Less we forget those who have gone before. In the center the Crown representing The Queen our Royal Patron Below the warp and anchor the symbol of the Merchant Marine of which we are part. But more the anchor shows strength and the warp the common bond that ties us together. The tassels, the beginning and end of life and the cord the path between the two with all it's twists and turns, but when laid out shows the straight and narrow path we take. The fringe is the never-ending connection between those who have gone before those who are present now and those who will continue in the future. The Standard will be born with pride by members of this station and we will continue to uphold the traditions of the RNLI. With Courage anything is Possible.
