The United States government produced a series of unique coats to be given to the most highly regarded chiefs of various tribes, which they often wore as symbols of pride. Capturing the Chief's Coat depicts a Blackfeet war party returning from a raid against the Crow. Along with many horses, they have taken the coat of the Crow chief as a trophy.

Capturing the Chief's Coat not only won the InSight Gallery Thomas Moran Memorial award for exceptional artistic merit at the 2014 Masters of the American West, but set another record price paid for an original Howard Terpning.

The flag was usually carried by the man who rode near the war leader so that when in a battle the members of the war party could locate the leader to obtain his orders. This flag was most useful in larger engagements. In any small skirmish between war tribes, it was every man for himself.
