CAMPAIGN STREAMERS FOR THE US ARMY FLAG
The United States Army Flag is displayed and carried with a set of streamers commemorating every battle and campaign fought by the Army since 1775. They are similar to the campaign streamers for Army organizational flags and colors, but dimensions are 2 3/4 inches at the hoist by 4 feet on the fly and all inscriptions include dates. For campaigns of the Civil War and after, streamers are in the colors of the ribbon of the campaign medal awarded to individuals. Streamers for the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812 and the Mexican War do not correspond to any campaign medals, since none have ever been authorized for these wars.
As of January 2001 there were 173 authorized campaign streamers for the Army Flag. Their order of precedence is indicated by the number below each drawing in this section. An asterisk (*) denotes the streamers of the reduced set authorized for use during inclement weather or when otherwise appropriate.
