Government officials can often be seen wearing pins. Typically they sport an American flag which highlights patriotism and dedication towards the United States. Sometimes these denote certain local government positions and/or departments, county organizations, state departments and federal divisions.
It is common for the U.S. military branches – Army, Coast Guard, Navy and Marines – to be awarded uniform pins based on achievements, merit, accomplishments, rank and special honors.
County and state officials can benefit from wearing custom government pins that highlights their proud service to the public. What better way for an elected official to communicate more effectively with the public than to wear a pin that highlights his/her elected position? Instead of simply having name recognition in the newspaper, constituents will have name and face recognition, giving an elected official an open communication channel with the public.
