It has gone through many variations over the years but never discarded. This has become the symbol, in some variation, of nearly all Marine units in other countries as well. The globe of the US Marines depicts the western hemisphere while the Royal Marines of Britain have the eastern hemisphere.
The Eagle represents our country, the Globe tells us Marines serve in any part of the world, and the Fouled Anchor, illustrated by the rope wound around it, symbolizes the Naval traditions still prevalent today.

In addition to the Eagle, Globe, and Anchor many rings may showcase a particular regiment or battalion, a specific military operation, or a decoration or medal earned.
