USS Nimitz (CVN-68)

A photo by Matthew Fern on Flickr shows the ship flag of the USS Nimitz (CVN-68). It is similar to that of the USS Theodore Roosevelt - a light/medium blue flag with the ship's seal in the centre.

On the quarterdeck of the USS Theodore Roosevelt is a display of a number of flags, including the U.S. national color, the Navy flag, the New York state flag (representing Theodore Roosevelt's tenure as governor of New York), and this light blue flag with the ship seal on the center. In addition, two large flags were hanging side by side on the bulkhead on the hangar deck, the national ensign and another ship's flag, also light blue but with a script monogram of the initials "TR" on the center in black, with the name and motto of the ship above and below.

USS Harry S. Truman (CVN-75)

[flag of USS Harry S. Truman] image located by Bill Garrison, 9 January 2020

The U.S. aircraft carrier, USS Harry S. Truman (CVN-75), has its own battle flag (and possibly the only U.S. warship to have such). It is a variation of the guidons carried by the companies of the 129th Field Artillery Regiment of the 35th Infantry Division, such as Battery D -- the battery under the command of then Army Capt. Harry Truman during World War I. Truman later became President in April 1945. It consists of: "75" -- referring to the carrier's identification number; "crossed cannons" on a scarlet background; "129 D" -- noting Truman's artillery unit; and in white lettering the phrase: "Give 'em Hell" (which a Truman supporter had shouted at him during the 1948 presidential campaign).
