The coast guard could be likened to that of a policeman of the sea. Upholding Maritime law and creating safety for those they are sworn to protect. In some countries, the coast guard may be armed as they are deemed part of the military force. Their duties can include stopping smugglers and protecting the country’s borders from unauthorized people accessing their shores. The coastguard protects local waterways and seas but their duties differ from that of the navy who provides services in global waters.
Items such as the life boy and lifeguard image bring to mind the topic of the coast guard who has important duties in protecting our seas and shores. These illustrations have been created in Adobe Illustrator and can be enlarged as required. You may download these icons when creating a post about coast guard services or when you want to highlight an area of text relating to water safety.
