This patch was in with some USAF patches, but that does not mean anything I guess. Does anyone recognize it? on twill with a loose loop stitching.  If its foreign, Mods please delete, Thanks in advance for your help.

With the chain stitching like that I would bet it is more of a "MOD" type scooter / parka jacket patch.

 

Like the early Who logo.

I think a MOD patch as well.

I can't find any other reference to a USAF ensign?

I do see things just like it for RAF ensign.

It's the British cockade. US Air Service used a different one during WW1.
