POSITIONAL COLORS & RANK FLAGS
REFERENCES
THE COMPONENTS OF THE COLORS
U.S. Army positional colors differ from Rank Flags
Positional Colors identify an office or appointment
i.e. Former SMA is not entitled to display the positional color of that appointment after leaving it


COLORS OF HONOR
The SMA positional colors are 3 feet at the hoist by 4 feet on the fly (plus yellow fringe).

The fringe on the colors has no symbolism. Each individual is free to interpret the meaning of fringe, it has no inherent or established universal symbolism.

The fringe is frequently used on military flags and in formal settings (parades, public meetings, offices of government officials, dedication ceremonies, etc.), it is also widely used in the private sector.

Differences between the two...
THE SERGEANT MAJOR OF THE ARMY FLAG
The Sergeant Major of the Army Positional Colors, were officially Unveiled and Presented, by Army Chief of Staff, General Dennis J. Reimer (left), on 16 June, 1999. SMA Robert E. Hall (right) was the residing SMA on the date of Recognition.
Rank Flags identify a specific individual or military rank
i.e. Retired general officers are permitted to display their rank flags on appropriate occasions such as military ceremonies
