I believe that is for the 1st Brigade of the 80th Division. The battalions were elements the of the former 80th Infantry Division regiments.

Very cool....I'm thinking as well that it may be a BDE guidon....

You all are 100% right, it is brigade. I typed this at midnight and didn't catch that I confused the unit "b-words," battalion and brigade, as I was tired and am becoming senile. I posted it this morning without reviewing it, so the mistake stayed. Thanks for the catch.

Its the first real brigade flag that I've seen. Here is a pic of one presently in use by the army. I use the AR-840-10 manual a lot with these, which shows and explains the flags. Since there is not a collector's guide for these, it really is just learning as you go along. Below are also photos that show the general designs of the upper level flags, along with my 42nd Infantry Division flag, which is of the earlier WW2 type and lacks the patch.
