In 1688 this ship carried Prince William III to England to drive the Catholic King James II from power and to safeguard the Protestant faith. The Latin inscription on the red flag translates as ‘for faith and freedom’. Bakhuysen painted this picture in 1689, the year in which William III and Mary Stuart were crowned king and queen regnant of England.
