green bullet Modern meaning
A symbol with great positive associations, it is often used in modern logos to show stability, security and reliability.

A side note about anchors in logos:
Because the anchor relates directly and exclusively to shipping, your target audience could possibly be confused if you use it as the logo for an accounting firm, for example. The exception is if the company name clearly states the company's business, for example, "Anchor Security".

In the Christian tradition, the anchor was sometimes used as a covert cross by early Christians. It is also associated with hope for life after death and as such it sometimes features on Christian gravestones.

Seafarers across different cultures use the anchor as symbolic of luck/good fortune and of trust.
