U.S. Coast Guard ribbons and badges as shown on the uniform of a former Master Chief Petty Officer of the Coast Guard

Badges of the United States Coast Guard are issued by the Department of Homeland Security to members of the United States Coast Guard to denote certain qualifications, achievements, and postings to certain assignments. Prior to 2002, the issuance of such badges was under the authority of the United States Department of Transportation.
