The rays of the sun form the background of our emblem and suggest the Legion's principles will dispel the darkness of violence and evil.
The wreath forms the center, in loving memory of those brave comrades who gave their lives in the service of the United States that Liberty may endure.
The star. victory symbol of World War I, also symbolizes honor, glory, and constancy. The letters " U.S." leave no doubt as to the brightest star in the Legion's star.
The larger of two outer rings stands for the rehabilitation of our sick and disabled comrades. The smaller inside ring denotes the welfare of America's children.
The smaller of two inner rings set upon the star represents service to or communities, states, and the nation. The largest outer ring pledges loyalty to Americanism.
The words American Legion tie the whole together for truth, remembrance, constancy, honor, service, veterans affairs, and rehabilitation, children and youth, loyalty, and Americanism
