Marine Corps Symbols, quoted from

"Marines have carried several different flags since the American Revolution, but today's scarlet standard has been flown during Marine Corps missions and ceremonies since January 1939. 
The Eagle, Globe and Anchor emblem is rendered in gray and gold over the scarlet background. The motto ribbon flows from the eagle's beak, bearing "Semper Fidelis," and the flowing scroll below bears "United States Marine Corps."  
Scarlet and gold were established as the official colors of the Corps as early as 1925, and the Eagle, Globe and Anchor emblem has appeared as part of Marine Corps iconography since 1868. 
In addition to being flown at ceremonies and installations, the Marine Corps flag hangs in the offices of the President of the United States, the Secretary of Defense, the Secretary of the Navy, and the Chairman and Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

The Eagle, Globe and Anchor emblem has been part of the uniform since 1868 and became the official emblem of the Marine Corps in 1955. 
The eagle with spread wings represents our proud nation. The globe points to worldwide presence. The anchor stands for naval tradition. Together, they represent a dedication to service in the air, on land 
and at sea.  
The Eagle, Globe and Anchor emblem is presented to recruits at the end of Recruit Training, symbolizing that they have earned the title "United States Marine."

The creation of the United States Marine Corps

Mostly the story gets told that these guys.....................met here in Philadelphia and said this:

(Philadelphia) Friday, November 10, 1775

Resolved, That two Battalions of marines be raised, consisting of one Colonel, two Lieutenant Colonels, two Majors, and other officers as usual in other regiments; and that they consist of an equal number of privates with other battalions; that particular care be taken, that no persons be appointed to office, or enlisted into said Battalions, but such as are good seamen, or so acquainted with maritime affairs as to be able to serve to advantage by sea when required; that they be enlisted and commissioned to serve for and during the present war between Great Britain and the colonies, unless dismissed by order of Congress: that they be distinguished by the names of the first and second battalions of American Marines, and that they be considered as part of the number which the continental Army before Boston is ordered to consist of. Ordered, That a copy of the above be transmitted to the General.


Lots of Marines say that the Corps was born in, well, in a bar: Tun Tavern. I go to Philadelphia a lot so I thought I'd locate Tun Tavern for you guys who can't make it there:

What?! Marines in a bar? NO WAY! Who would believe that? But wait, it gets better. Some say that the original chief recruiter was none other than Robert Mullen, the proprietor of said tavern. So you're telling me that the very first Marine recruiter was the bar tender! Well hey, what do I know? Maybe it was a logical place to find just the right bunch of guys.

The possible site of Tun Tavern Today. Based on a National Park Service map I have, the Tun Tavern neighborhood is in the park area just beyond the wall seen in the photo of the historical marker above.

I went down there early one morning. You can't see them, but there are about a dozen homeless guys sleeping in the bushes and on the park benches.

The historical marker is real easy to find. It is about a five minute walk from Independence Hall. Just walk down Chestnut St. toward the river. Go right on to Front St. You can't miss the marker on Front St between Chestnut and Walnut St.

So now when you are in Philly, you can visit the legislative birthplace of the Untied States Marine Corps, and then you can visit the traditional birthplace of the United States Marine Corps.
