Organizational Flag, 414th Quartermaster Group. Buff and light blue are the Quartermaster branch colors. The group flag for QM units, however, has a buff field with a "national flag" blue stripe and yellow numerals, the reason being that a light blue stripe with buff numerals would provide insufficient contrast against the buff field.

U.S. Army: Quartermaster Corps Pennant (1923) Per the 1923 edition of AR 260-10, vessels operated by the Quartermaster Corps, other than ships of the Army Transport Service, flew a triangular red, white and blue pennant with the branch insignia of the Quartermaster Corps centered in the white diamond-shaped portion. This pennant was made of bunting in
two sizes: 4-foot hoist by 6-foot fly and 2-foot hoist by 3-foot fly. This pennant is not described in the 1931 edition of the regulation, so it was apparently abolished at some prior time.

The U.S. Army Transport Service (part of the Quartermaster Corps) operated ships for the transport of units to overseas locations. These ships flew the National Ensign and Union Jack, and were also authorized a distinctive flag of diagonal red, white and blue stripes with the branch insignia of the Quartermaster Corps centered. Proportions were 2:3 and the flag was made in three sizes. Source: the 1923 and 1931 editions of AR 260-10.
