The star to be superimposed upon a black shield, of dimensions such that the points of the star shall lie at a distance of 1/8 inch (.32 cm) from the perimeter.
 
Symbolism: The star has played an important part in our history from the days of the Colonies to the present time. The Indian signifies the first and original American.
