NATO military commands and some other organization also have flags.
Almost all commands have their own flags (or banners), which have a great
importance in all military units, and they have a special role during ceremonies
held in occasions of changes of commanders. It is a subject of hand-over ceremony
when former commander gives the flag into new commander's hand. It is a formal
moment of transfer of his authority to new one.
All commands and other organizations has a badge or crest, generally it is placed on a monocoloured (blue, white, or green) flag as a command's flag. The official NATO military structure is a good base to introduce flags of various military commands, organizations and NATO-led military missions.
