The symbolic imagery:
Brendan and his monks look to the setting sun (west) from a safe harbor where a friendly dog is running to greet them. The main image is surrounded by an ancient map with a "wind-faced" compass blowing toward "Terra Repromissionis" and a mermaid. A whale holds a scroll with "Navigato Brendani" written on it. Celtic knots and a bird complete the outer border.
