Flag Description and Origin;The Public Health Service, one of the seven uniformed services of the United States, dates its history to the establishment of a series of marine hospitals for merchant seamen in 1798. Although the marine hospitals were closed in the early 1980s, the Public Health Service continues its status as a maritime service, enforcing the nation's quarantine laws, inspecting passenger liners to ensure their compliance with health regulations, and providing doctors and other medical personnel to support the Coast Guard and NOAA Corps. Since at least 1912, the Public Health Service has used a yellow flag with the service seal--a crossed fouled anchor and winged caduceus--on the center in blue.
