I saw the new flag for this agency on the news last night. It is formerly the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco & Firearms of the US Dept of the Treasury.
The background is national flag blue. The new ATF seal is in the center: www.atf.gov/graphics/mast_seal.gif. A gold scroll with indeterminate inscription curves around the bottom of the above seal.

I finally located an image of the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) Flag before 2003 when it was part of the Treasury Department.
www.public-action.com/SkyWriter/WacoMuseum/death/fig/d_fig06.jpg "US News/World Report, July 24, 1995: Man on concrete room with ATF flag flying" from this site: www.public-action.com/SkyWriter/WacoMuseum/death/page/d_catalo.html.
This is my reconstruction of the ATF flag now, I used the ATF seal from Wikipedia and the scroll from the Dept of Justice flag. I believe the scroll has the full name of the ATF on it and possibly 1972 the year it was formed as a separate agency, but it is hard to view, I have left it as is for now because I cannot make more detailed lettering using Paint.
