The 1st Cavalry division flag feature the division’s insignia, a yellow and black triangular shield. The color yellow was the division’s original color and still persists as part of the official insignia. The horse’s head is symbolic of the Cavalry’s original make up. The color black represents iron for the transition that the Cavalry made to tanks and armor. The diagonal stripe represents a sword for military honor and symbolizes movement “up the field” and signifying attack. The insignia was originally approved as a shoulder sleeve insignia for the 1st Cavalry division in January 1921.
Our 1st Cavalry Division flag is made for use with outdoor flagpoles and features a canvas header and grommets. The grommets allow for a snap hook to be used to attach a flag to halyard rope. Grommets also allow for easy installation and removal of a flag. The flag is stitched on all four sides to prevent fraying.
