The United States Air Force Flag

The United States Air Force Ceremonial Departmental Flag is the senior organizational flag of the Air Force. The flag is made of heavyweight rayon banner cloth; its dimensions are 4 feet 4 inches at the hoist by 5 feet 6 inches on the fly, with ultramarine blue field and 2 1/2-inch yellow fringe. The insignia is the coat of arms of the Department of the Air Force.

The Air Force Ceremonial Departmental Flag is displayed with a set of campaign streamers, one to recognize each battle or campaign fought by the Air Force, beginning with the Mexican Expedition (1916-17). Campaign credits prior to 1947, when the Air Force was part of the Army, are also commemorated by streamers on the Army Ceremonial Flag.
