Society of the Cincinnati

ORGANIZATION

The Insignia of the Society, the Eagle, was designed in 1784 by Major Pierre Charles L'Enfant, who also executed the initial design for the city of Washington. A specially commissioned eagle, encrusted with diamonds, was presented to George Washington by the French Navy, and has been worn by each succeeding President General. The Society's colors, light blue and white, symbolize the fraternal bond between the United States and France.
