The anchor is a heraldic symbol for hope.
A ships anchor

An anchor holds a boat still or keeps it from moving as quickly. An anchor can symbolize stability -- in its positive aspect of reliability, safety or consistency or its negative aspect of an inability to move or progress. Since boats or ships, water and travel are symbols of progress or change, an anchor can symbolize a resistance to improvement or remaining in the same place (attitude, ability or situation).
