ENSIGN THE  NAME  GIVEN  THE  NAVY’S  JUNIOR-MOST  OFFICER  DATES  TO MEDEVIAL  TIMES. LORDS  HONORED  THEIR  SQUIRES  BY  ALLOWING THEM  TO  CARRY  THE  ENSIGN  (BANNER)  INTO  BATTLE. LATER THESE SQUIRES BECAME KNOWN BY THE NAME OF THE BANNER ITSELF. IN  THE  U.S. ARMY  THE  LOWEST  RANKING  OFFICER  WAS  ORIGINALLY CALLED   “ENSIGN”   BECAUSE   HE, LIKE  THE  SQUIRE  OF  OLD,  WOULD ONE  DAY  LEAD  TROOPS  INTO  BATTLE  AND  WAS  TRAINING  TO  THAT END. IT  IS  STILL  THE  LOWEST  COMMISSIONED  RANK  IN  THE BRITISH  ARMY  TODAY. WHEN  THE  U.S. NAVY  WAS  ESTABLISHED, THE AMERICANS CARRIED ON  THE  TRADITION  AND  ADAPTED  THE  RANK  OF  ENSIGN  AS  THE TITLE   FOR   ITS   JUNIOR   COMMISSIONED   OFFICERS. 8-14
