16th Cavalry Standard

The standard carried by the 16th Cavalry features, in paint, the Arms of the United States with thirteen gold stars and a red ribbon with the regiment's numeric designation. The shield positioned upon the eagle's breast includes New York State's motto, "EXCELSIOR." Approximately 10% of the flag is missing, mainly along the bottom fly. Yellow-colored tassel fringe lines the remaining portions of the top and bottom. (2006.0137)
