On June 10, 1957 on the USS Saratoga at Norfolk, VA; commemorated the International Naval Review that took place during the 350th Anniversary of Jamestown Festival The Naval Review theme was "Freedom of the Seas," and it was the largest representation of nations in an event of this type. The image depicts a US aircraft carrier of the Forrestal class against a background of silhouetted outlines of ships participating in the International Naval Review. The official Jamestown Festival insignia is prominently featured to the left of the carrier, superimposed over a map of the Hampton Roads area.. A Naval Review is an event, where the whole (or a very large part) of the US Navy is paraded to be reviewed by the president or the Secretary of the Navy. It often includes delegates from other national navies. It is more regular and frequent than its British equivalent, the Fleet Review, and often occurs on a Navy Day.
