U.S. Army Military Flag 2x3 to 5x8 ft. (Nyl-Glo)
The flag for the United States Army was created in 1956. It has a white background with emblems in blue and red -- national colors.
The design was based on the Army seal adopted in 1779 by the Continental Congress. It includes a cuirass (breast plate) that represents the Army defending the nation. There is also a liberty cap of the type used in the Roman Empire and a pike carried by certain military officers. Cannon, cannonballs, a mortar, powder flask, and a rattlesnake (such as appeared on some Revolutionary War flags) complete the design. The date at the bottom (1776) indicates the year the United States Army was officially established.
