http://www.jeron.je/thatwasjersey/StClement.htm you can find a series about
the emblems of the parishes of Jersey. On one of the pages, at
http://www.jeron.je/thatwasjersey/StClement.htm you can see the flag of
Saint-Clement parish, which is a banner of arms showing a yellow anchor on a
dark blue field. A golden anchor on a blue background is the symbol for the patron saint of blacksmiths, and St Clement is also one of several saints attached to the sea and sailors.

Saint Clement (French: Saint-Clément, Jèrriais: St Cliément) is one of the
twelve parishes of Jersey in the Channel Islands. St Clement is the Patron
Saint of blacksmiths and anchor-smiths. Legend has it that he was martyred by
being attached to an anchor and thrown into the Black Sea.
The parish flag shows a yellow anchor on a blue background. A golden anchor
on a blue background is the symbol for the patron saint of blacksmiths, and
St Clement is also one of several saints attached to the sea and sailors.
