In 1945 the US Presidential Seal was redesigned so the bald eagle faced away from the arrows, symbolising turning away from war. Churchill commented that it’d be better if they put the bald eagle’s head on a swivel.
80 years later and Churchill still has a point.
Don’t they change the seal on the carpet of the Oval Office, so the eagle faces towards the arrows if they are at war?
The arrows are based off of Haudenosaunee tradition regarding peace.
