I don’t know if there’s a reason for not mentioning it, but the bend gules and bendlet azure are the distinctive markings painted on the hulls of US Coast Guard cutters.

 

That said, I have a hard time seeing why it needs to be on the arms of a cutter, or in particular why a sinister instead of dexter canton.

I have no clue of why this is the case. On the TIOH site the sinister canton is not mentioned but shown in the painting.

It’s interesting that these arms are on a lozenge.  Very few corporate arms have a "feminine personality" in this way—an example was Maidenhead in England.

A feminine form for a ship named for a lady.  Makes sense.  Both the RN and the RCN used lozenges forwhat they called "badges" .

Yes the Lozenges in the RN and RCN where used prior to 1940 (when it was decided that all Ship’s badges should be Round*) to designate Sloops and auxiliary Vessels, including Submarines and Aircraft Carriers. Today the shape is used by shore-bases and other installations ashore.

 

 

*the execption being Ships of the Royal Fleet Auxiliary (RFA), who uses the pentagonal shape (point downards) previously used by Cruisers.

It not uncommon common to use a canton in US military arms.  It is sometimes blazoned in a second sentence as "On a canton is a device from the arms of the parent organization."  The placement of the canton seems to be fluid, but my guess is that they don’t want to obscure bends, so the sinister side was used more often and became accepted even on arms without a bend.

The very elegant, almost Scandinavian-looking, arms of the USCGC Bear, a medium-endurance cutter named after the original revenue cutter Bear, which served as the de facto seat of government for the Alaskan islands from 1886-1926.  Hence, presumably, the polar bear.
