Notes

US Army groups are similar to brigades but generally control smaller and fewer subordinate units, typically a mix of battalions and separate companies. With a few exceptions, notably the 207th Infantry Group of the Alaska Army National Guard, groups are oriented to the combat service support branches. The group organization is used in the Military Police branch for command and control of Criminal Investigation Division detachments. Though the group is still an authorized Army organization, few exist in the current Army force structure. Many former groups have been upgraded to brigades.

Groups are authorized organizational flags, 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 numerals applied to appear properly on both sides of the flag. These flags have a solid-color field with a diagonal stripe from upper hoist to lower fly. For most group types, the field is in the first-named branch color and the diagonal stripe is in the second-named branch color. The group's number, usually in the second-named branch color, is centered on the flag. In a few cases, different colors are used to ensure that the elements of the flag can be clearly distinguished.

Campaign and unit decoration streamers, if authorized, are always displayed with these flags.
