The blue NASDA initials on a white background form a nice counterpart to
the national flag. (I once saw a logo with red letters on a NASA
souvenir page, though.)
NASDA was established in 1969, NAL in 1955 and ISAS in 1964. I haven't discovered NAL's or ISAS's flags yet, although both use a logo or symbol. We may expect the new JAXA logo to appear on flags in the near future.

JAXA's predecessor NASDA (Japanese space agency) used a blue ball-shaped
acronym logo on a white flag. A red-letter patch is also mentioned: "I once saw
a logo with *red* letters on a NASA souvenir page, though."
The only evidence we have is for a white-and-blue flag, however here is a link to the patch I was referring to: http://www.spacetoys.com/prodimages/thumbs/i8557.jpg.jpg
This recalls the Japanese sun disk better than the blue version, of course.
