In 1984 Antigua and Barbuda issued a miniature sheet depicting a Man-o-War in Battle. A Letter sends to the stamp artist Walter Wright of New York, requesting to know the names of the two ships on the stamp and the date of the naval action have been answered with – This is an original design depicting warships of the sailing age and does not represent any particular ships or battle.’
By comparing the flags on British warships that were used by the Royal Navy, the flag was used from 1620 till 1707, so most probably it are ships from the 17th century.
