This pin is displaying the English ships that were used in the Navigation Acts of 1651 that the English Parliament passed. The purpose of these Acts were so England could benefit off of trade, rather than the Dutch who ruled the sea trade. This helped the English economy because basically the only ships that were allowed to trade with England had to be English ships. These Acts eliminated Dutch trade and allowed for England's economy to move towards mercantilism.
