To have these troops separate from their command, an entire support troop unit was established until both the Olympics and Paralympics in Tokyo was complete. The commander was presented a special standard, modeled off of the Brigade Commander flag, with the emblems of both games at the bottom fly. The text ""Ministry of Defense, Ground Self-Defense Force Eastern Army" (防衛省 陸上自衛隊 東部方面隊) was put below the emblem in black, close to the edge of the flag.(Source)
