Description

According to their public affairs office, their flag is "a blue sheet with the FEMA logo on it."

"The eagle and shield, adapted from the Great Seal of the United States, represent vigilance and preparedness. The light blue color of the background has a historical association with the Agency and its components. The white triangle represents civil defense. The banner motto, "PACE AC BELLO MERITA," means "Service in Peace and War," indicating the Agency's responsibility in all types of emergencies: natural or man-made. The dark blue of the designation band refers to the federal authority and the responsibility of the agency."

I've never been absolutely sure what came first, the U.S. white civil defense triangle (originated in 1941) or the international blue-on-orange civil defense triangle (prescribed in the 1977 Geneva Convention Protocols, but possibly in use earlier). In any case, the blue/orange combination is not used by US civil defenders as an organizational emblem.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is an agency of the United States Department of Homeland Security, initially created by Presidential Reorganization Plan No. 3 of 1978 and implemented by two Executive Orders on April 1, 1979.[1][4] The agency's primary purpose is to coordinate the response to a disaster that has occurred in the United States and that overwhelms the resources of local and state authorities. The governor of the state in which the disaster occurs must declare a state of emergency and formally request from the president that FEMA and the federal government respond to the disaster. FEMA also provides these services for territories of the United States, such as Puerto Rico. The only exception to the state's gubernatorial declaration requirement occurs when an emergency and/or disaster takes place on federal property or to a federal asset

FEMA traces its origins on the as well on the FCD. "The Federal Civil Defense Administration (FCDA) organized on December 1, 1950, and became an official government agency on January 12, 1951. The agency distributed posters, programs, and information about communism and the threat of communist attacks. In 1979, The President signed Executive Order 12179 merging the successor to the Federal Civil Defense Administration - the Defense Civil Preparedness Agency (DCPA) - into today's Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). In 2003, FEMA was merged into the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
