USNA Color Parade

The Color Parade is the last of the four formal dress parades this spring semester. The parade is open to the public and will be held on Worden Field. The highlight of the Color Parade is the formal presentation of the color company pennant by the superintendent, the company commander and the “color honoree,” to the newly designated spring color company. Each semester, the color company is designated by virtue of its excellence in academics, athletics and professional accomplishments throughout the semester. The color company competition began in 1867.
