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.

The 1998 update to AR 840-10 indicates that the Positional Color of the Chief, National Guard Bureau has been modified. Two scrolls have been added: a small one above the insignia with the date 1636 and a large one below the insignia with the inscription NATIONAL GUARD.
