The Unveiling Of United States Space Force Flag

For the first time in 72 years, the official flag of a new U.S. military service has been unveiled on Friday (May 15, 2020). The United States Space Force — the newly created branch of the U.S. Armed Forces — has an official flag.

“Space Force” or “Star Trek”?

Some pointed out the new logo’s similarities to “Star Trek” insignia that the T.V. and film franchise has used for decades but, as the military explained, the delta symbol, the central design element in the seal, was first used as early as 1942 by the U.S. Army Air Forces. Long before the year of 1966 — the first season of “Star Trek.”

Secretary of Defense Mark Esper commended President Trump for his efforts to extend the Defense Department by adding a new branch committed exclusively to space.

With the establishment of Space Force and establishment of Space Command, the United States is now doing what it needs to do to protect our assets in space and ensure that space remains the heavens by which we not only protect America, but we sustain our economy, we sustain our commercial capabilities, we sustain Americans’ way of life.
