Anchors Aweigh! Grab your Navy flags at 25% off during Veterans Month
From the times of the American Revolution through today, the evolution of the proud men and women who serve in the U.S. Navy have flown numerous variations of a flag. The U.S. naval presence is the strongest in the world, and the sacrifices those men and women make every day encapsulates the unofficial motto of “non sibi sed patriae” or “Not self, but country”.
It is with that spirit in mind that we honor Navy veterans with 25% off on the Navy flag and all veterans flags at Flagstore.com.
The earliest versions of the naval flag, which included red and white stripes or a straight blue field with white stars can be considered the harbingers of the American flag.
The U.S. Navy flag today takes into account many of the variations that played into the offical Navy Seal and was recognized in 1957 as:
“On a circular background of fair sky and moderate sea with land in sinister base, a three-masted square-rigged ship underway before a fair breeze with after topsail furled, commission pennant atop the foremast, National Ensign atop the main, and the commodore's flag atop the mizzen. In front of the ship a Luce-type anchor inclined slightly bendwise with the crown resting on the land and, in front of the shank and in back of the dexter fluke, an American bald eagle rising to sinister regarding to dexter, one foot on the ground, the other resting on the anchor near the shank; all in proper colors. The whole within a blue annulet bearing the inscrip tion "Department of the Navy" at top, and "United States of America" at the bottom, separated on each side by a mullet and within a rim in the form of a rope; inscription, rope, mullet, and edges of annulet all gold.”
