The German noun 'Segel' translates to 'sail' in English. It refers to a large piece of fabric or other material that is used to catch the wind and propel a boat or ship through water.

Sails have been used for centuries as the primary means of propulsion for sailing vessels. They come in various shapes and sizes, depending on the type of boat and the desired speed and direction of travel.

In addition to their practical function, sails also have symbolic and cultural significance. They are often associated with adventure, exploration, and freedom, and are frequently depicted in art, literature, and folklore.
