Our Coat of Arms

coat of arms
“Strength, agility, harmony, and wisdom
are the jewels we wear our pride in. Our
values and ethics define our course!”

Here’s a little about our Crest and Coat Of Arms which reflect our philosophy and pride. Inspired by the vast Indian Sea, its marine-richness and natural history, Angriya’s Coat of Arms is truly unique. The anchor and the shield signify invincible strength and stability. The fluttering flags depict the legacy of Sarkhel Kanhoji Angre who guarded this coast undefeated. The sea horses adorn the Coat Of Arms on the sides, signifying correct guidance and nurturing our thought processes.

The White Bellied Sea Eagle represents strength and agility that is endemic only to the Konkan Coast. The Indian Bottle Nosed Dolphin depicts harmony, the Olive Ridley Sea Turtle is acknowledged for its longevity and wisdom in the high seas. Along with this, the Coat Of Arms also raises awareness about India’s corals and is a symbol that urges people to seek conservation of these fragile ecosystems.

We are firmly rooted in our values of national pride, strength, and harmony. Our slogan originates in the rich Sanskrit language and the GhoshVakya says "नाना रत्ना वसुंधरा". It implies the fact that biodiversity is eternally beautiful and we must protect it. Angriya is not just any other luxurious cruise liner, it is much beyond that. It’s an ode to Maratha Naval Supremacy and Mother Nature!
