Why Purple?

Purple symbolizes “joint” in the military world, meaning “all services.”

In the world of color, if you combine Army green, Air Force blue, Marine red, and Navy blue, you get purple.

(Although, Coast Guard orange does not contribute to the purple, they contribute to protecting the US, therefore, it is only right to include them in our depiction of ‘joint.’)
