SHIELD: The wavy bars refer to the Chesapeake Bay. The pile suggests the peninsula between Baltimore harbor and the mouth of the Patapsco River, a strategic location in defense of Baltimore. The fort on the pile denotes For McHenry ' s location on Whetstone Peninsula in the upper Chesa- peake Bay. The fort was named for James McHenry, Secretary of War under President Adams. The trefoil on the red cross symbolizes McHenry ' s immigration from Ireland to Philadelphia where he studied medicine and later volunteered as a surgeon during the Revolutionary War. The red cross, a symbol for medical establishments, also recalls the use of the fort as a military hospital during World War I. The colors blue and gold are traditionally associated with the Navy. CREST: The eagle, symbol of the United States, grasps a representation of the Hag that Hew over Fort McHenry in 1814 and was the inspiration for Francis Scott Key ' s Star Spangled Banner. The bomb stands for the bombardment of the fort by the British fleet. The eagle standing on the bomb holding the United States flag high indicates the fort ' s successful defense against the British.
