"A service battalion is a unit of the Canadian Forces (CF) that provides
combat service support to a brigade group and its elements."
"The flag of a service battalion is a horizontal tricolour, red over yellow over blue. The red represents the Medical Corps, yellow Logistics, and blue the Engineers. The flag also has a large Arabic numeral (representing the battalion's number) in the centre, extending into the red and blue bars. This flag was designed by Chief Warrant Officer Phil Raven during his time as RSM of 2 Service Battalion in the 1970s."

The 12th service bn. in BC has an identical flag with a number 12 instead of
a 2. The flag is 2 sided so the number reads correctly on both sides.
