The white wavy lines represent New River flowing into the ocean at New River Inlet,
and the sails on the horizon indicate Topsail Island, which is also at the mouth of New
River. Legend has it that the Pirates rendezvoused on the island and that a lookout
would scream out "TOPSAIL" when one was spotted---hence, the name. The sails are
the International Code Flags for "N" and "R"
