Organizational Flag, U.S. Army Reserve Command. "Designated Commands" of the Army, of which USARC is one, have flags with a "national flag" blue field, yellow fringe, and the command's shoulder sleeve insignia centered. USARC is broadly responsible for peacetime command and control of USAR units. It is also responsible, under FORCOM, for USAR organization, training and mobilization. The two-star general who commands USARC is also the Chief, Army Reserve.

Organizational flag of U.S. Army Reserve (USAR) Regional Support Commands (RSC's) & Army Reserve Commands (ARCOM's): 9th RSC and 7th ARCOM.

The peacetime chain of command for USAR units runs from U.S. Army Forces Command through U.S. Army Reserve Command to RSC's and ARCOM's. These headquarters units are responsible for command and control of USAR units in their geographical areas. When USAR units are called up for active duty, RSC's and ARCOM's mobilize them, prepare them for deployment and dispatch them to ports of embarkation. In the early 1990's the number of ARCOM headquarters was reduced and many of those remaining were redesignated as RSC's.

Both RSC's and ARCOM's have organizational flags with a national flag blue field, yellow fringe, and the shoulder sleeve insignia (SSI), in proper colors, centered. Many of these SSI's were formerly used by corps and divisions; that of the 9th RSC, for example, was formerly used by IX U.S. Army Corps. The 7th ARCOM is headquartered in Germany. Many of the civilian employees of the U.S. Army in Germany are Army Reservists, and the 9th ARCOM is their peacetime higher headquarters. Its SSI symbolizes the command's role: the shield shape and the battlements represent the European defense mission, and the Minuteman is the symbol of the USAR.
