The United States Coast Guard is the only military organization that operates within the Department of Homeland Security. Unlike any other United States branch, the Coast Guard serves at all times, whether we are at war or peace. Proudly proclaim your service as a United States Coastie by flying the official US Coast Guard flag!
ABOUT OUR USCG FLAG
Coasties are, as the slogan says, always ready. They protect our coastlines, patrol our waters, and perform dangerous search and rescue missions. With the Coast Guard being such an important branch of our US Armed Forces, we are proud to offer this American-made military flag.
Our Coast Guard flags are available in either nylon or polyester. Nylon is a light material great for everyday flying, and polyester is heavier and designed for rough wind and weather. Each flag comes equipped with a durable canvas header and brass grommets for flying on an outdoor flagpole.

ABOUT THE COAST GUARD
The Coast Guard has been active in all US wars and conflicts. Its fleet is one of the world’s oldest, and its Cutters average between 47 and 54 years old. The Coast Guard was founded in 1790 and has a distinguished history of versatile service. Missions include maritime security, drug interdiction, navigational aid, search and rescue, marine safety, and defense.
ABOUT THE UNITED STATES COAST GUARD FLAG
The history of the Coast Guard flag is marginally unknown. The flag does not include the Coast Guard's official seal. Instead, the flag features an eagle with a red and white striped, blue-capped shield on its breast. Beneath the eagle is the Coast Guard’s motto, “Semper Paratus,” which translates to “Always Ready”. The date, 1790, is when the Revenue Cutter Service was founded – the predecessor to the United States Coast Guard.
