|Hawkeye25||This is ridiculous. The 'Dove' is a small semi-rounded flat vessel dipped in chocolate and sold in small silver packages all over the country. It's tasty, too.|

Did you not go to school and /or remember anything?? The Dove was the
16th Century supply ship to the Maryland colonies. I am sooo dissappointed.

"The Dove?" Or maybe the "Little Dove", which would be, in Dutch... Duyfken!
I'm sticking with my first guess!

Hellosailor, the flag in your link is the British East India Company's flag, which, as far as I know concerned it's trades to the Asian market, India, China, etc.
I'm voting English naval ensign, but I still have no idea what the ship is... looks like a modern day warship in the background, too...hmmm.
