EC1250. This vintage souvenir travel shield charm is for Bermuda, an overseas territory of the United Kingdom located in the North Atlantic Ocean. The charm reads BERMUDA across the top and features a version of Bermuda's flag. In 1609, a flotilla of ships left England under the Company's Admiral, Sir George Somers, to relieve the two year old colony of Jamestown, Virginia. The flotilla was broken up by a storm, and the flagship, the Sea Venture, was wrecked off Bermuda (as depicted on the territory's Coat of Arms), leaving the survivors in possession of a new territory. The island was claimed for the English Crown, and the charter of the Virginia Company was extended to include it.
