Brief History of the Marine Corps
The Marine Corps was formed in 1775 by the command of the Continental Congress during the fight for independence. After the Revolution the Marine Corps was disbanded, only to come back into service in 1798. Shortly after it's return, the Marines fought one of their most famous actions against the Barbary Pirates in what is now Libya. Their attempt to take Tripoli has since been immortalized in the Marine Corps Hymn. In the 20th century, the US Marine Corps was front and center in the fight against Imperial Japan during World War 2. Since then their role has expanded greatly to include operations at sea, on land, and in the skies.
The emblem of the Marine Corps, present on their flag, is the depiction of the eagle, globe, and anchor. The eagle represents the United States, the globe represents the corp's willingness to operate anywhere in the world, and the anchor represents the naval origin of the marines.
These Marine Corps Flags are made of durable, high quality nylon. In addition to being a great all-weather flag they will maintain their bright colors even in the fiercest sun. However, if you live in a high wind area, we also carry the Marine Corps flags in heavy duty 2-Ply Polyester.
