United States Coast Guard Red Slash Style Flag

Printed 100-denier polyester United States Coast Guard 3×5 flag featuring the Coast Guard Seal placed on a red diagonal bar across a white background with a blue accent bar running parallel with the red bar. Placement of the Official Coast Guard Seal on a red stripe was first approved and adopted in 1967 by President John F. Kennedy and became known as the “Racing Stripe” or “Slash” emblem. The purpose for adding the stripes was to make the Coast Guard emblem more recognizable as their watercraft were occasionally mistaken for United States Navy vessels. The diagonal striped ended this confusion. The bright red diagonal stripe emblazoned across the sides of Coast Guard ships, boats and aircraft is an unmistakable distinction. The artwork is visible from both sides of the flag. The lettering reads correctly from one side only.

  • 4 rows of stitching on the fly end to prevent premature fraying
