Foam-flower

The famous ship of Eärendil

Eärendil's ship, in which he voyaged the World's oceans and eventually, with a Silmaril bound to his brow, travelled to the shores of the Blessed Realm itself. 'Foam-flower' is the English translation of the name - the ship is much better known by its Elvish name, Vingilot.
