Positional Color, Office of the Chief, National Guard Bureau. This officer represents both the Army National Guard and the Air National Guard. Accordingly, his flag is a diagonal bicolor with dark blue (for the Army) on the bottom and ultramarine blue (for the Air Force) on top. The badge in the center of the flag is the branch insignia of the Natioanl Guard Bureau; it dates from the turn of the century. The two triangles in the upper fly are "flight devices" meant to symbolize the Air National Guard.
