The Vietnam Coast Guard Veterans patch features a green, yellow and red rectangle in the center. The rectangle is fashioned after the service ribbon awarded to all U.S Armed forces personnel involved in the war in Vietnam. The ribbon was golden yellow with two green lines on the end and three smaller green lines in the center. The patch also features the words “VIETNAM VETRAN” and “U.S. COAST GUARD” embroidered in white on a black square background. Yellow was used in the ribbon because of its historic ties to imperial Vietnam, the red stripes represent three ancient temples in Vietnam and the green was used to symbolize the forests of Vietnam where most of the close quarters combat took place. Yellow and red also suggested the flag of anti-communist South Vietnam.
