James A. Thompsen, vice president of marketing for

Jackson Engineering Company.

The Big Apple, symbol of New York City's economic and entertainment life, was utilized

May 1, 1980 by Jackson Engineering Shipyard recently in a most unusual ceremony. The company designed a flag with the New York City red apple symbol on a field of white. While hun- dreds of invited guests and shipyard em- ployees looked on, New York City's economic development commissioner Kenneth S. Schul- man gave the signal that sent the first Big

Apple flag up the mast of the USS Water- ford (ARD-5). At the same time, flags were raised on the USNS Comet, other vessels in the yard, and a New York City fireboat that presented an impressive water display. The opening and closing flag ceremonies were performed by the color guard from Kings

Point Merchant Marine Academy.

In addition to the flag, an appropriate en- graved Big Apple Citation was presented to the commanding officers of each vessel. A personal citation was also awarded Mayor

Koch, honoring him for his continuing ef- forts on behalf of the maritime industry of the Port of New York.

City councilman Nicholas LaPorte praised the shipyard for its ongoing expansion pro- gram. Other guest speakers included L.J.

Bettencourt, first selectman, City of Water- ford, Conn.; Paul Proske, president, Staten

Island Chamber of Commerce; and John

Fanelli, vice president, New York City Con- vention Bureau. In addition, representatives from the U.S. Navy, U.S. Coast Guard, Mil- itary Sealift Command, and various city agencies attended the affair.
