The flag of my regiment, the U.S. Army Transportation Corps Regiment. The flag is brick red with a gold fringe. The crest depicts a ships wheel, a highway sign, a winged wheel on a rail-representing the different forms of transportation - all superimposed on an arrowhead brick red and gold-alluding to the regiment's motto "Spearhead of Logistics"-which appears in a gold scroll with blue letters.

Vessel Flag, Transportation Corps, U.S. Army. Army-operated ships and watercraft fly branch-specific vessel flags in addition to the National Ensign. For some reason, they not only come in several sizes but in two different proportions: 4:5 and 2:3; I have illustrated the latter. Vessel flags are in branch colors, in this case brick red and golden yellow for the Transportation Corps. The insignia is the branch badge as worn on the lapels of the Class "A" uniform jacket by commissioned officers. Most Army vessels are operated by either the Transportation Corps or the Corps of Engineers, though AR 840-10 also illustrates a vessel flag for the Signal Corps.

425th Transportation Group. Brick red and golden yellow are the branch colors of the Transportation Corps. The 425th Transportation Group, an Army Reserve unit, was upgraded to a brigade in the 1970's and inactivated in 1992.
