These gold Officer Submarine Warfare Excellence Pennants are made from 200 denier nylon with reinforced fly ends. They feature a fully applique embroidered design on both sides and is available in only one size, 18"H x 26"L, and recognize officers who meet established standards for percentages qualifying for the officers' gold submariners' dolphins.
These flags date back at least to the 1960s. They are flown while not under way from a staff attached to the after edge of the submarine's sail (conning tower). They are finished with a distance line, brass snap and ring.
