On this page you will find information about the NCSSAR Color Guard, the E-Magazine for the National Color Guard, the Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) for the Color Guard, the Color Guard Handbook and contact information for any questions.

The Color Guard is used in ceremonies to open and close meetings of the SAR, DAR, CAR and other organizations. They participate in parades, memorial services and grave markings. They bring favorable publicity to the SAR with their colorful flags, attractive uniforms and colonial style music. In addition, it is fun. The Color Guard is organized on the state society and/or chapter level. North Carolina fields a "combined Color Guard" made up of men from several chapters who assemble just like the minutemen.

"My Guidance has been geared to North Carolina recommending that the Chapters building their small color guard start with Militia Period Dress, i.e. Tricorn, Hunting shirt, long pants, and those common items worn and used by the common farmer, as they are easier to dress up or down according to the weather. I also encourage our men to build on a four man unit with two riflemen and two flag bearers and to start by posting the Betsy Ross and their Chapter flag at each meeting. I encourage all to attend announced events and to participate in period dress." -  Color Guard Commander, Major Dick Bishop, USA Ret.
