Quick Overview

A Brief History of the US Marine Corps Flag
Since inception as the Continental Marines in 1775, the United States Marine Corps has served with a number of different flags as it’s standard. Though it is not known for certain, the Grand Union flag was most likely carried as the standard of the Continental Marines following the flag’s adoption by General George Washington in January of 1776.
By the mid to latter half of the nineteenth century, a standard was adopted depicting an eagle with an anchor in the center on a white background with the words, “To The Shores Of Tripoli”, referring to the First Barbary War when US Marines brilliantly captured the Tripolitan city of Derna in 1805.
During the American Civil War, the Marines standard was essentially an American flag with and eagle atop the US Shield at the center of a circle of 29 stars in the canton.
The US Marine Corps standard underwent several more redesigns before the first version of what is today’s standard appeared. In January of 1939, the current design incorporating the Marine Corps seal on a red background was adopted, and was only changed slightly when President Eisenhower approved a new design of the seal in 1954. The 1954 redesign removed the crested eagle in favor of the bald eagle and added a ribbon clutched in the eagle’s beak that reads, “Semper Fidelis”.
