Description
English: The seal of the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency inlaid in the floor of the main lobby of the Original Headquarters Building. Inlaid in the floor of the main lobby of the Original Headquarters Building is a large granite CIA seal measuring 16 feet across in diameter. This emblem has been the symbol for the Central Intelligence Agency since February 17, 1950, and is comprised of three representative parts: the eagle, the shield and the 16-point compass star. The eagle is our national bird and stands for strength and alertness. The 16-point compass star represents the convergence of intelligence data from around the world at a central point. The shield is the standard symbol of defense and the intelligence we gather for policymakers is used in their decisions about defending our country. Well-known for not only the agency it represents, this seal has appeared in many entertainment and documentary motion pictures.
