The emblem of the Prince of Dol Amroth was a silver-upon-blue banner, bearing a ship with a swan-prow upon the sea.
Its northern shore defined part of Cobas Haven, the small bay into which the Morthond River flowed. Upon the headland the Princes of Dol Amroth established a castle and thus Dol Amroth referred to this stronghold and to the neighboring port-city, the chief city of the fief of Belfalas. Within the walls of the city was the Sea-ward Tower or Tirith Aear,  which had a bell that was rung for the benefit of mariners.
During the Second Age, a Númenórean family of the Faithful settled near the Elves. Elendil who was of their kin, gave them title to rule the fief of Belfalas. They built their stronghold upon the promontory.
According to one story, Galadriel and Celeborn dwelt among the Elves of Dol Amroth. When the Elvish king Amroth was lost at sea in T.A. 1981 the last of these Elves left the realm which from then on became a realm of Men.
It was from the name of this king that Dol Amroth (the "Hill of Amroth") took its name. The first Prince of Dol Amroth was Galador, the son of Imrazôr. According to legend, Imrazôr had married the Elven-lady Mithrellas.
The Faithful and later the Gondorians that settled in Dol Amroth never intermarried with Middle Men so as a result, the citizens were of pure Númenórean blood and, according to the legend of Mithrellas, their Princes had an Elvish strain.
The people of Dol Amroth were tall, grey-eyed, and dark-haired. They were famous as the most skillful harp players in all of Gondor, who played at the coronation of Aragorn. The inhabitants of Dol Amroth and in the lands nearby were some of the few people of Gondor who spoke Sindarin on a daily basis.
