The design of the insignia for the Supreme Headquarters Allied Expeditionary Force (SHAEF) was approved by General Dwight D. Eisenhower, Supreme Commander for Operation OVERLORD, and came into general use in March 1944.
Each element in the insignia is symbolic. The main feature is the flaming sword of avenging justice, shown piercing the black of Nazi oppression.Above the sword is a rainbow, symbol of hope, containing all the colours that made up the national flags of the Allies.Then above the rainbow is the blue of peace to come.

The back of the shirt features our clothing line logo, D-Day Wear®. Our logo done in red, white and blue, features a red maple leaf for Canada, a white crown for Great Britain and a blue Star for the U.S.A. During World War Two all those colours appeared in the flags our countries fought under.
The embroidery process requires the shirt to be hooped so that it can be embroidered, some shirts have a hoop mark around the design. This mark will disappear once the shirt is washed. If you would like to wear the shirt before it is laundered, you can dampen your fingers and literally rub the mark away. We recommend that when you wash the shirt, be sure to turn it inside out and we highly recommend that the shirt be hung to dry to keep it in pristine condition.
