United States Joint Forces Command (USJFCOM) is one of ten Unified Combatant Commands of the United States Armed Forces. Unlike the six commands with responsibility for war plans and operations in specified portions of the world, USJFCOM is a functional command that provides specific services to the military. USJFCOM was formed in 1999 when the old United States Atlantic Command was renamed and given a new mission: leading the transformation of the U.S. military through experimentation and education.

Let me add my speculation on the flag of the former US Atlantic Command (USACOM), before it became the United States Joint Forces Command (USJFCOM) in 1999. I found an image of the former Atlantic command patch, which looks similar to the current USJFCOM seal. My guess is that they took elements from the USACOM seal when they made the USJFCOM one. My speculation on the former Atlantic Command flag was the USACOM seal on a blue flag, but I have no proof of such a flag yet....
Here is the USACOM patch: hatnpatch.com/zencart/images/EC-70064.jpg
