“Sec. 1492. The colors carried by organizations of the National Guard shall be such as are borne by similar organizations of the United States army, except that the regimental or battalion color shall have thereon the state coat-of-arms, instead of the arms of the United States; and no military organization provided for by the constitution and laws of the state, and receiving state support, shall, while under arms, either for ceremony or duty, carry any device, banner, or flag of any state or nation, except that of the United States or of the state of California. It shall not be lawful for any body of men whatever, other than the regular organized National Guard of this state, and the troops of the United States, to associate themselves together as a military company or organization, to drill or parade with arms in this state, without the license of the governor thereof, which license may at any time be revoked; provided, that students in educational institutions where military science is a part of the course of instruction may, with the consent of the governor, drill and parade with arms, in public under the superintendence of their instructor; and provided further, that nothing herein contained shall be so construed as to prevent benevolent or social organizations from wearing swords. Any person or persons violating any of the provisions of this section shall be guilty of a misdemeanor and subject to arrest and punishment therefor.”
