United States Soccer Federation

The USSF was founded in 1913 and is the main official body that regulates soccer (football) in the United States. They also select players to represent the United States in various FIFA-sanctioned competitions, along with match officials for events that occur in the United States.

The current flag of the USSF uses a crest designed with assistance from clothing manufacturer Nike and adopted in 2016 (https://www.espn.com/soccer/united-states/story/2818374/us-soccer-unveils-revamped-crest-after-more-than-20-years). The symbolism of the crest, according to https://cdn.pastemagazine.com/www/articles/USSoccerCrest_MAIN.jpg, takes elements of the US flag with the thirteen stripes and the use of the blue "USA" above the stripes. The flag, which can be seen at https://www.ussoccer.com/stories/2021/04/biosteel-ynt-regional-id-centers-continue-to-build-player-pool-across-the-country and from my personal observations at their National Training Facility in Kansas City, Kansas, is white with the crest in the center.

Centennial Flag (2013)

For their 2013 Centennial, a flag was made available to where the centennial crest is placed on a red background. I was able to see this flag at the bar "Smoke and Barrel" in Fayetteville, Arkansas, where they host watch parties for US Soccer along with a local chapter of the nationwide "American Outlaws" soccer supporters group.

The recently closed US Soccer Development Academy also had a flag used at their events; it is a similarly designed badge as the USSF but placed on a blue background.
