Military officer flags in the United States Air Force, Army, Marine Corps, and Navy are imperative for day-to-day operations. These flags indicate the rank of the officer(s) in a designated area. The stars, ranging from one to four, determine the rank of an individual. Each set of officer flags has its own color for the stars and the body of the flag. The Army, for example, uses red flags with white stars. Each 3' x 5' flag is made of durable nylon material with sewn stars. The left edge includes two sturdy brass grommets for hanging, however, our indoor options include a pole sleeve with a sophisticated gold fringe.
The Air Force, Army, Marine Corps, and Navy each have their own flags. The Air Force officers' flags are blue with white stars with the following ranks: General, Lt. General, Major General, and Brigadier General. The Army and Marine Corps flags are the only two with similar flags. They share a red and white color scheme and officer ranking titles— General, Lt. General, Major General, and Brigadier General. This is, of course, not to suggest that the two operate the same.
The Navy, however, has two separate sets of officers' flags. For those eligible for command at sea, the flags are navy blue with white stars. Their rankings are Rear Admiral (Lower Half), Rear Admiral, Vice Admiral, and Admiral. The other set of flags is the reverse color scheme—white with blue stars. These flags were created to distinguish those who are not eligible for command at sea. These are reserved for officers in medical, dental corps, civil engineering, intelligence, supply, and other similar positions. These flags are never flown aboard ships but can be used in boats and ashore to identify significant areas.
All of our flags in this collection are available in an indoor option, where the flag features a pole hem and golden fringe. Every officer flag is made to order. By doing this, we ensure the quality of these flags from start to finish, guaranteeing your satisfaction. We strive to offer our military the best in class service and products.
