The emblem of the American Legion Auxiliary stands for God and Country and the highest rights of humankind. It consists of several parts, and each part has a meaning. The rays of the sun that form the background stand for the principles of the American Legion Auxiliary and for loyalty, justice, freedom and democracy dispelling the darkness of violence, strife and evil. The unbroken circle of blue represents unity and loyalty. The field of white exemplifies the hope of freedom. The star of blue is the emblem of service in war; it is no less the emblem of service in time of peace.
