U.S. Army The Army emblem was adopted in 1947 and is adapted from the official seal, first designed in 1778. The seal is only approved to be used on documents, so the emblem was developed for use on display items. The words “This We’ll Defend” appear in a scroll guarded by a rattlesnake, above a collection of army weapons and the Cap of Liberty.
U.S. Navy The first Navy seal was adopted in 1780 and went through several changes before the current seal and corresponding emblem was created in 1957. The design depicts bald eagle with one foot on the ground and one foot on an anchor, rising above a “background of fair sky and moderate sea,” according to the executive order adopted by President Eisenhower.
U.S. Air Force The Air Force emblem was designed in 1947, the year that the USAF separated from the Army to become an independent branch of the military. The original proposal for the design depicted a Wright Brothers airplane, but it was replaced with shield and thunderbolts.
U.S. Marine Corps The Marine Corps’ emblem is known as the Eagle, Globe, and Anchor, and is very similar to the original 1868 design. The eagle sits atop a globe showing the continents of the Western Hemisphere. In its mouth is a banner reading “Semper Fidelis” (Always Faithful), the corps’ motto.
Our rustic tiles are carved from large marble blocks, ensuring that no two stones will ever be exactly alike. Then the pieces are tumbled to give them character that can be seen on every surface, edge, and corner. The result is a one-of-a-kind keepsake with more personality that would be possible from a piece of manufactured ceramic. Please see additional images for an example of a tumbled marble tile.
