1st Regiment Mounted Rifles, New York Volunteers Standard, Civil War

1st Mounted Rifles Regimental Flag

The 1st Mounted Rifles received this presentation flag in October 1862. Embroidered by Tiffany & Co., the flag features the Goddess Columbia with the Latin inscription “DEO DUCE, FERRO COMITANTE,” or, translated, “God My Guide, My Sword, My Companion.” The flag was restored in 1969 using a matching blue backing fabric to hide extensive losses to the fly and bottom edges. Restorers stitched the flag and backing fabric between two layers of nylon net with zig-zag machine stitching. Flag dimensions are: 53” hoist X 59” fly. (00.166)
