Description of the flag

The U.S. Border Patrol is an arm of the Immigration and Naturalization Service, part of the Department of Justice. The flag is dark green with a golden yellow border, and the Border Patrol emblem in the center surrounded by 23 stars (representing the sectors and other units of the Border Patrol) and the date of establishment.

I contacted the National Border Patrol Museum and it was confirmed that the flag shown above is still in use by the Border Patrol (which is now part of Dept of Homeland Security) and has been in use since very well before 1999. A split tail Border Patrol banner is also used and has been in use for many years. The rectangular green flag, with stars, BP logo, and the date May 28, 1924 is a ceremonial Border Patrol flag.
