Earlier this week, another destroyer in this class, the USS Paul Hamilton, finished up its latest deployment flying a large blue flag with a crescent moon with the word “LIBERTY” written inside, as well as a very long pennant with a stars-and-stripes motif, both of which have their own fascinating backstories.


More than meets the eye.


The Moultrie Flag, also known as the Liberty Flag, was a key flag flown in the American Revolutionary War.

I’d say that’s fairly profound.
