When the games were finished the stadium was offered to France as a gift from the United States. The large bronze badge features an eagle perched on the top, wings spread and holding a wreath in its beak, the outer edge of the badge is a nicely detailed with laurel and oak leaves. The center reads: "INTER-ALLIED GAMES PERSHING STADIUM PARIS" with "L. CARIAT" in the bottom corner and the base of the badge shows the year: "1919" in raised detail.
