Traditions; 200 Years of History

Bicentennial Publication on traditions of the USCG, including commissioning ceremonies, flags, ensigns, seals, CG slash, & battle streamers. As noted in the introduction by then-Chief Historian Dr. Robert L. Scheina, "The U.S. Coast Guard. . . .is rich in traditions. The origins of many of these may be traced back many centuries well beyond the establishing of the Service in 1790."
