Army Nylon US Flag Canvas Header & Brass Grommets. Made in the USA.
The US Army Military Flag was first adopted on June 12, 1956. By order of President Dwight D. Eisenhower it was presented by then Vice President Richard Nixon to the Secretary of the Army William M. Brucker at the Capitol, Washington DC on June 13. On June 14th which happened to be flag day, Secretary Brucker introduced the flag to the United States citizens with a public address in Philadelphia at Independence Hall.
Traditional Army flags measure 4 feet 4 inches by 5 feet six inches. The US Army flag is made of white silk and is embroidered with a blue design of the official War Office Seal. This seal represents the United States Army after it was put into action by an act of the Continental Congress on June 14, 1775. This is represented on the flag below the blue design of the War Office Seal with the marking of 1775.
