MERCHANT MARINE FLAG - Nylon

The history of the United States Merchant Marine flag is closely tied to the vital role played by the U.S. Merchant Marine in ensuring the country's maritime commerce and national security. The U.S. Merchant Marine, which is comprised of civilian mariners, serves as an auxiliary to the U.S. Navy during times of war and plays a crucial role in transporting goods and personnel to support the nation's military operations. The U.S. Merchant Marine flag, also known as the Merchant Marine Ensign, was officially adopted on May 20, 1936. It features a red field with a blue canton, similar to the U.S. flag, but with a fouled anchor in the center of the canton, symbolizing the maritime nature of the service.

During World War II, the Merchant Marine played a vital role in delivering troops, equipment, and supplies to theaters of war around the world, often facing significant dangers from enemy attacks. Many merchant mariners lost their lives during the conflict, and the flag came to symbolize their bravery and sacrifice. The flag is typically flown on U.S. Merchant Marine vessels and at various maritime facilities. It serves as a tribute to the dedicated men and women of the Merchant Marine who have contributed to the nation's maritime strength and security throughout its history.
