The reason that dark blue is called Navy Blue stems from the British Royal Navy. Officers in the British Navy wore dark blue and white, and have since 1748. Since then many navies from around the globe have adopted the color dark blue in their uniform, and so it has come to be known as navy blue.

The United States Naval Academy (USNA or Navy) was founded in 1845 and is, in addition to a service academy, a national historic landmark. The mascot of the Navy and its sports teams is Bill the Goat. One doesn't usually find a goat at sea, however in olden times goats were kept on ships for the purposes of being a garbage disposal, and for milk, cheese and meat.
