While on a trip to Bermuda, I came across this pretty amazing site. Located on Freeport Drive in the Royal Naval Dockyard, right on the water, were these two hundred plus naval crests painted on the walls. According to the some locals and the newspaper, the wall tags are the crests of all the Naval ships that have passed through the area. They date back to 1956, almost 60 years. The very first one was the "Bigbury Bay" and was done by National Service Junior Officer, Jeremy Burge. After being inspired by his love of painting and the white walls of on the buildings, he painted his ships crest on the wall. After Sailing off and revisiting months later, he noticed a second crest painted next to his own. The tradition has continued to present day.
During the last ten or so years, students from the Warwick Academy (the oldest school in Bermuda) have been commissioned to refurbish the fading crests. Starting in about two years, all buildings on Freeport Drive will demolished and new constructions will take the place of all the old historically painted buildings. I felt it was needed to show the beauty of this street the way it is now before it's gone.
