All separate brigades of the U.S. Army have flags of two colors, divided vertically, with the unit's shoulder sleeve insignia centered. Buff and scarlet are the colors used for flags of separate support brigades. These units provide command and control for a variety of combat service support units -- administrative, supply, ordnance, medical, etc.
The 103rd Support Brigade is currently an Army Reserve unit (unless it, too, has fallen victim to defense budget cuts). It uses the same shoulder sleeve insignia as the WW II-era 103rd Infantry Division.

Guidon, HHC 103rd Support Brigade. The shoulder sleeve insignia of the old 103rd Infantry Division was continued when the division was inactivated and some of its elements were used to form the 103rd Support Brigade. Same basic pattern as the brigade's organizational flag.
