In the Adventures of Tintin, the Unicorn is a fictional 17th-century sailing ship that plays a central role in the storyline of the comic book of the same name, as well as in the two subsequent books, "Red Rackham's Treasure" and "The Secret of the Unicorn".
The Unicorn was originally owned by Sir Francis Haddock, an ancestor of Captain Archibald Haddock, Tintin's friend and companion. The ship was involved in a battle with the pirate Red Rackham, and was sunk with its cargo of treasure.
In "The Secret of the Unicorn", Tintin discovers a model of the Unicorn in a market and buys it as a gift for Captain Haddock. This sets in motion a series of events that lead Tintin and Haddock on a quest to find the treasure of the Unicorn and ultimately uncover the truth about the fate of Sir Francis Haddock.
The Unicorn is depicted as a large, majestic sailing ship with three masts and an ornate figurehead. Its iconic appearance and historical significance make it a memorable and important element of the Adventures of Tintin.
