The Presidential Unit Citation award pennant was authorized in 1942 for the Navy in the name of the President for extraordinary heroism in action against an armed enemy. This Burgee Pennant is Spanish yellow with broad stripes of old glory blue and scarlet along the upper and lower edges. If a unit is cited more than once, for each citation in addition to the first for which the insignia is authorized, there shall be one bronze star added to the pennant up to a total of five stars. Each star will be displayed in the center of the yellow stripe of the insignia and the stars will decrease in size as the awards increase.
