About this Seal!
The Seal of the President of the United States is based on the Great Seal of the United States. The first US president to use a presidential seal was Rutherford B. Hayes. Many people erroneously believe that the seal is changed during times of war, so that the eagle faces the arrows in its left talon. This belief may have arisen because major changes to the seal have coincidentally been made before or after wars. This misconception could also have arisen through the comments of Winston Churchill who, jokingly, criticized Truman’s redesign of the seal stating that “Mr. President, with the greatest respect, I would prefer the American eagle’s neck to be on a swivel so that it could face the olive branches or the arrows, as the occasion might demand”.
The seal is most often seen:
- on the podium at presidential press conferences
- on White House documents
- on the sides of presidential transports Air Force One, Marine One, and Cadillac One
- at the center of the iconic and symbolic oval rug in the Oval Office of the White House
- on the Presidential Flag, however the words Seal of the President of the United States are not used
- etched in gold onto Presidential China, such as the Reagan China, which is often used at State Dinners at the White House
Additional stars have been added to the seal as other states have joined the Union. The last additional star, the 50th, was added with the admission of Hawaii in 1959.
