(Airstream Yacht Pennant) Badges / Shields / Ornamentation

Here is an image/logo/icon that I found and borrowed from 59 Toaster's photo site. If he objects I will take it down.

I played around with it for a few minutes in my basic Paint program. As you can see I am Paint Program challenged.

But I thought some of our more talented might like to take a stab at enhancing it. It is IMhO a neat image.

I had never seen it before and wonder if any have seen it in print form maybe in a brochure etc.
Also would like to know its makeup on the trailer. It is apparently on a plate of aluminum and riveted onto the skin of Toaster's '59 Airstream. Is the image etched or photo burned, or screened painted or is it just a decal on that plate.? 45 years is a long time for a decal I suppose.
I wonder if it was ever produced in an actual sailcoth pennant and if so what was it's usage?

Here is 59 Toaster's actual image:

The other 3 badges are somewhat unique and interesting too.
Would like more info on the indistinguishable one on right.

As for the pennant badge, I've heard that only '60 models came with that but as I have proeviously felt, they were on a few of the '59 models as well. Mine doesn't have one. That is an interesting image and it was etched into the surface and then the recessed areas were painted.

The badge to the right is a MHMA (Motor Home Manuafacurers Association) emblem. These are hard to come by. I've been looking for one for some time.
