Joint Service Flag
by Joseph McMillan
I was to Jordan in March 2000. In addition to the army flag there is a flag for the Jordan Armed Forces as a whole. It is similar to the army flag but has a combined services badge of crossed scimitars, anchor, and eagle, all surrounded by a wreath and ensigned with the Jordanian royal crown in proper colors. I saw this flag flying outside the General Headquarters in Amman and displayed in the office of the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, where it was trimmed with a red and gold fringe and topped with a finial consisting of a crown atop a large ball.
