Florence Martus inspired thousands of international sailors as she saluted them coming and going through the Port of Savannah at the turn of the 20th century. The young lady waived a handkerchief by day and a lantern by night to every ship that passed through the Georgia seaport between the years of 1887 and 1931. According to legend, not a ship was missed in the Waving Girl's forty-four years on watch. Romantic folklore about a lost love, flirting sailors and treasured gifts accompany the legend of the Waving Girl. A statue of Martus sculpted by Felix de Weldon was erected in the historic Savannah riverfront to commemorate her seafaring hospitality. The Waving Girl pattern celebrates her spirited welcome and warmth.
