Our seals and logo visually represent our commitment to serving the nation.
The history of the United States Postal Service has both reflected and influenced the many ways our country has evolved since its inception. As the historian of the Postal Service, I see examples of these reflections and influences all around me. One example is the evolution of the Postal Service’s official seal.
We have had several official seals in our nearly 250-year history. In that time, we’ve used Mercury, the Roman god; a post rider on a horse; and a bald eagle to represent our service to the American public.
