The Coast Guard flag was adopted on January 29, 1964. It is a white flag with the great Seal of the United States in the center. The colors used in the Coast Guard emblem are all symbolic. The color red stands for our youth and sacrifice of blood for liberty’s sake. The color blue not only stands for justice, but also for our covenant against oppression.
The eagle on the flag, representing the United States, holds a ribbon in its beak with the phrase, “E Pluribus Unum,” meaning “One out of many.” The eagle is supporting a coat of arms without support, which is symbolic to remind America that it should stand on its own, free from reliance on other nations for aid. In each of its talons it holds a bunch of arrows and an olive branch representing war and peace. Underneath the eagle is printed the Coast Guard’s motto, “Semper Paratus, 1790,” which means, “Always Ready.”
The Coast Guard flag flies on many occasions such as ceremonies, parades, installations, and more. In addition, the flag is also displayed in the offices of the United States President, Secretary of Defense, Secretary of the Navy, and the Chairman and Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
