A Brief History of the United States Navy Flag

The United States Navy flag is actually more of a recent development. The Navy was around much longer than the flag has been. An executive order by President Eisenhower created the flag in 1959. The flag itself is extremely similar to other flags of the U.S. Armed Forces. This is because it showcases the Department of the Navy seal on it, which is outlined by gold fringe. In addition to the creation of the flag, the U.S. Navy Flag also has official streamers. These streamers can hang with the flag to represent a specific ship or a unit’s achievements. Before the Navy flag was an official entity, the U.S. flew the infantry battalion flag. This was an unofficial flag of the Navy starting in 1864.

On this flag, there was an anchor with a cable wound around itself. The fouled anchor represented the challenges and obstacles that the Navy had to overcome in order to fight for the country.
