The seal for the Marine Corps was made official when President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed an Executive Order approving the seal for the United States Marine Corps on
June 22, 1954. The globe on the Marine emblem displays the Western Hemisphere which symbolizes that the U.S. Marines are dedicated to serve the American people in any part of the world. The anchor, a symbol of the Marines’ amphibious duties, dates back to 1775.
