Maritime Administrator Albert J. Herberger unveiled the Merchant Marine flag to honor America's civilian seafarers who have supported the Nations armed services in times of peace and war. On May 24, 1994 this flag was introduced and is comprised of an eagle perched atop a red, white and blue shield with an anchor in the middle. At the top of the flag, the words "In Peace and War" are stitched, as well as "1775" at the bottom to commemorate early contributions of the U.S. Merchant Marine to the Nation's history.

All outdoor flags are finished with polyester heading and brass grommets. Indoor flags have pole hems and available plain or fringed. Stick flags available in plastic, lightweight polyester or silk-like material.
