Civilian Aide to the Secretary
of the Army (CASA) flag
Based on information received from The Institute of Heraldry (TIOH), the
Army authorized the CASA flag in 2003 and it is classified as an
individual/personal flag like general officer and SES flags. No
written guidance exists on its display, but as an individual flag, paragraph
2-5g, AR 840-10 would likely apply:
(with regard to precedence of the flag), it says, "Individual flags in order
of rank. For the purpose of order of precedence, the term 'individual flags'
includes the Department of the Army Senior Executive Service flag."
