Organizational Flag, 645th Finance Group. Groups are branch-oriented headquarters units similar to but smaller in size than brigades; they control a variable number of battalions and separate companies/detachments. Unlike separate brigades, groups are not authorized a shoulder sleeve insignia and so their flags are of a simple pattern: field in the first-named branch color, diagonal stripe from upper hoist to lower fly in the second-named branch color and numerical designation centered on the stripe in (usually) the first-named branch color. The fringe is yellow for all group flags. The branch colors for the Finance Corps are silver gray and golden yellow; the numeral on the stripe is "national flag" blue rather than golden yellow to make it more visible.
