Please note- As of 1 June 2009 there are now 43 streamers in the U.S. Coast Guard set.
These beautifully made U.S. Coast Guard Streamer sets are made to official government specifications. We offer these Coast guard Streamer sets in two sizes. They measure 2 3/4" wide x 48" long and are also available in 2 3/4" x 36" size. Both sizes are made of single ply rayon fabric.
They feature a single brass grommet for attaching to the campaign streamer holder (Not included but may be ordered from our store).
Streamers are attached to the Coast Guard standard, replacing cords and tassels. They are carried in all ceremonies representing heroic actions in all naval encounters from 1798 to the Vietnam War and beyond. Any Coast Guard unit may display the battle streamers.
The Coast Guard has authorized a total of 43 battle streamers.
Please verify the correct size you need as these streamers are not returnable.
The Coast Guard adopted battle streamers following the practice established by the U.S. Marine Corps without inscription on the ribbons or adornment by stars or other devices and are 2 ¾ inches wide by four feet long. The streamers are attached to the Coast Guard standard, replacing cords and tassels. Streamers will be affixed to the streamer attachment at the top of the flagstaff below the topping. The senior streamer will be fastened to the front of the streamer attachment, followed by the remaining streamers, in descending order, clockwise around the attachment. They are carried in all ceremonies, representing heroic actions in all maritime and naval encounters from 1790 to the Global War on Terrorism and beyond. The battle streamers may be displayed by major commands.
