Coast Guard Flag

  • Single thickness durable outdoor flags with canvas header and brass grommets for mounting. 4 rows of stitching on the fly end for added strength.
  • 3x5' flag with pole sleeve and gold fringe is an indoor flag. It attaches to an indoor pole using a sleeve with button attachment and has gold fringe on all edges.

Today's official Coast Guard flag is a white flag with a blue emblem. It's history is hard to track though. Even the Coast Guard itself can't give an official year, let alone, a date for it's inception. The earliest know image of the flag is from a painting from 1840. In this painting, the Revenue cutter Alexander Hamilton flies a flag very similar to today's Coast Guard standard as a jack. The next step in the history of the Coast Guard flag is in a 1917 illustration where it is no longer just the canton design, but is an entirely white flag with a blue design. The final design change of the Coast Guard flag would come after 1950 when the the semi-circle of stars would become a full circle and all elements would be finalized into the US Coast Guard flag that we know and love today.
