Prior to 1946, there was no prescribed insignia for Aides to the President of the United States. In 1946, an insignia was adopted -- 48 stars in a ring on a shield surmounted by an eagle. This design was changed in 1953 to 13 white stars on a blue shield surmounted by an eagle. The insignia for Aides to the Vice President of the United States was approved on 24 January 1969.
