History

Illustration of the Seal of the U.S. Coast Guard

The official seal of the U.S. Coast Guard was first created in 1927, when it was signed into action by Treasury Secretary Andrew W. Mellon. The Coast Guard was a relatively new branch of the military, and was created through the union of the Revenue Cutter Service, the Life-Saving Service, and the Lighthouse Service. Each one of these organizations was represented by very unique and different symbols, making the task of creating one new symbol to symbolize all of them somewhat difficult. Eventually the current seal design was chosen, and the creation of this seal really solidified the convergence of three different organizations into one new U.S. Coast Guard. Today, the seal is used on official documents and records of the Coast Guard and invitations, programs, certificates, diplomas, etc. The seal may also be used on jewelry, stationary, and other commemorative items at the discretion of the Commandant.
