The Department of Veterans Affairs flag features the department's seal centered on a blue background. Our VA flags are available for indoor and outdoor use. The outdoor flags are finished with a header and grommets and the indoor flags come fitted with a pole sleeve and gold fringe.
Two versions available; the single-sided construction is best used for indoor displays while the double-sided is a great choice for carrying in parades or other events.
Indoor VA flags are available with a design printed and embroidered or appliqued. For more information see the description tab below.
The Department of Veterans Affairs flag showcases the VA seal with pride. The official seal featured on the VA flag dates back to 1989. This was the year in which the Veterans Administration, an independent Federal Government agency became a cabinet member agency and was renamed Department of Veterans Affairs. The seal was the result of a competition held amongst VA employees to design the new seal. The winning design was produced by a medical media production specialist named David Gregory, an employee at the Indianapolis VA Medical Center.
The seal on the VA flag features an eagle in flight with its wings spread. In its talons, the eagle holds two flags, the Betsy Ross American flag and the American flag, and a gold cord. The two flags are a representation of the journey American has been through, starting with 13 colonies and now at 50 states. The gold cord in the eagle's talon represent soldier who have died while in service. Above the eagle are five gold stars placed in a circle. These stars represent the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard.
Both indoor and outdoor VA flags are available in the commonly used 3'x5' size. The VA recommends the following accessories when displaying an indoor flag: (the links directly below will allow you to purchase individual replacement accessories for your display)
