Joint Task Force Guantanamo

JTF Guantanamo is a subordinate command of US Southern Command, and is responsible for detention operations at Naval Base Guantanamo, Cuba. I was unable to find any definitive images of a JTF GTMO flag, however, two of its subordinate elements do have them:

Joint Detention Group:

Joint Medical Group:

Light blue with emblem in center. Seems to have the same basic design as the Joint Detention Group flag, but without the gold border: http://static.dvidshub.net/media/thumbs/photos/0912/236031/1000w_q75.jpg

JIATF South is a subordinate command of US Southern Command. It is located at NAS Key West, FL and is responsible for joint counternarcotics mission in the Caribbean and Latin America.

You can only see the corner of the flag in this image (on the right), but it is simple, and should be easy to reconstruct: http://static.dvidshub.net/media/thumbs/frames/video/1106/118813/486x274_q75.jpg
