34th INFANTRY DIVISION (UEx)
ORGANIZATIONAL FLAGS & GUIDONS
 

Divisions of the US Army and their subordinate headquarters are authorized distinctive organizational flags. For infantry, airborne and training divisions, the flag is horizontally divided, scarlet over national flag blue, with the division's  shoulder sleeve insignia (SSI) in proper colors centered. The divisional headquarters battalion has a similar flag, with the SSI centered on the scarlet stripe and the monogram HHBN centered on the blue stripe. For brigades of infantry divisions, the flag is vertically divided, scarlet and national flag blue, with the SSI over the brigade number or monogram. For separate infantry brigades the flag is vertically divided, national flag blue and scarlet, with the brigade SSI centered. For separate cavalry brigades the stripes are yellow and scarlet. For separate field artillery brigades (formerly titled fires brigades) the stripes are scarlet and yellow.

Organizational flags for divisions, headquarters battalions and brigades are 3 feet at the hoist by 4 feet on the fly with 2 1/2-inch yellow fringe. They are made of heavyweight rayon banner cloth with the insignia and numerals or monograms applied to appear properly on both sides of the flag. Campaign and unit decoration streamers awarded to divisions are always displayed with these flags. Organizational flags are always carried or displayed a National Color of the same material and dimensions.

Guidons for headquarters elements of divisions are of the same design as the corresponding organizational flags. Dimensions are 20 inches at the hoist by 27 inches on the fly with a 10-inch fork. Older guidons made of cotton or wool bunting may still be used if serviceable, but new ones are made of heavyweight rayon banner cloth.

34th Infantry Division: The Red Bull Division is a unit of the Minnesota Army National Guard (ARNG). Except for the headquarters battalion none of the units shown below are organic to the division. Rather, the division headquarters exercises peacetime training and readiness oversight of them. In line with the UEx concept, the division is organized as a stand-alone headquarters with a wartime mission of exercising command and control over attached units, e.g. an ABCT, an IBCT, an FA Brigade, a Sustainment Brigade, etc. These may or may not include the units that the division supervises in peacetime.

116th Cavalry Brigade Combat Team: Though it bears a cavalry title and has the flag prescribed for separate cavalry brigades, the 116th is organizationally identical to the ABCT.
