History of the Army Flag

The U.S. Army Flag features a white background with a blue version of the "War Office Seal" emblazoned upon the center. Underneath the seal is a red scroll that reads, "United States Army" and beneath that is bold blue text reading, "1775." The War Office Seal features Roman armor, a sword with a Phrygian Cap, which is sometimes liberty cap on its end, an espontoon (European polearm that was used by officers), a bayonet, a cannon, cannonballs, a musket, mortar, mortar bombs, a drum, drumsticks, and a rattle snake holding a scroll that reads, "This We'll Defend."

The armor, sword and espontoon represent the U.S. Army's strength in defending the country, while the bayonet, cannon, cannonballs, mortar, and musket represent early weaponry that was used by the army. The drum and drumsticks as well as the Army's motto, "This We'll Defend," are both intended communicated the US Army's willingness to defend and serve the people of the United States. The 1775 is indicative of the year that the Continental Army, which served as the foundation for today's US Army was formed. The Rattle snake that is holding the scroll is a common symbol used in flags from the Revolutionary War period in the United States including the Gadsden Flag, Culpepper Flag, and others.

This Flag features 5 colors: red, white, blue, black, and gold. The Red, white, and blue colors are chosen to pay homage to the official colors of the United States. Additionally, the blue color is said to represent loyalty, red stands for courage, white is symbolic of service, gold stands for honor, and black represents determination.

The U.S Army Flag was adopted on June 12th, 1956 by President Dwight. D. Eisenhower following Secretary of the Army, Wilber. M. Brucker's request to create a flag that was representative of the Army. At the time, the US Army was the only branch of the US Military without an official flag. The flag is flown over United States Army installations and no other flag may be flown over the Army Installations apart from the national flag of the United States.

The U.S. Army is a branch of the United States of America's armed forces which focuses on land-based military operations and national defense. It is the oldest branch of the armed forces. Prior to the United States of America being officially established as a country, the Continental Army was formed in order to fight during the American Revolutionary War. George Washington Led the Continental Army to Victory against Great Brittan.

The majority of the soldiers in the Continental Army had served previously in the British army. After the United States of America was established as a country, the continental army was disbanded and the "Regular Army" was formed on June 3rd, 1784. The Regular army was reorganized and established in 1791 as the "Legion of the United States" and in 1796, the name was changed to the "United States Army."

The official mission of the U.S. Army as outlined in US Code is stated as the following:

Since its inception, the U.S. Army has grown exponentially. When the U.S. regular army was first formed, there the force included approximately 800 soldiers. Today, the U.S. Army has grown to over 1 million active soldiers.
