The 108th Division (IT) is a training division that is part of the Army Reserve. "IT" stands for "Institutional Training," and divisions of this type have a dual role. In peacetime they carry out a major portion of the continuation training required for members of the Army Reserve and Army National Guard, e.g. NCO courses, battle staff training, etc. Upon mobilization, they would also provide initial entry training and advanced individual training as required to support the Army's buildup to war strength.
The design of the flag is the same as for infantry and airborne divisions: scarlet over "national flag" blue with yellow fringe and the division's shoulder sleeve insignia centered. Brigades of the division follow the same pattern as the brigade flags of combatant divisions.

The official division flag, as for all US Army infantry & airborne divisions, is a red over blue bicolor with the division insignia on the center.
