US Coast Guard Stained Glass Emblem

Item #0035
 
Dimensions: 6 1/2" Round
 
$27.00

Even before America was a country, the Marine Corps was formed and had a crest. The "foul anchor" (an anchor with a wrapped chain) that labeled Marines in the Revolutionary War remains part of their emblem today. Many versions of the emblem were worn until June 22, 1954 when President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed an Executive Order approving the official seal for the United States Marine Corps.

 

The globe of the Marine Corps emblem displays the Western Hemisphere, which together with the American bald eagle, symbolizes a dedication of service to the American people. On the very top of the emblem are the words that denote Marines all over the world, "Semper Fidelis", meaning Always Faithful.
