The federal agency responsible for disbursing civilian foreign aid; I saw its flag on the news, at a televised press conference: white with the text USAID in large caps, the ''US" blue and the "AID" red, with the agency seal above then and off-center, over the S in "US."

USAID is a government agency that was set up to help developing nations either recover from a natural disaster or to develop their governmental structure. It was created after the passage of the Foreign Assistance Act in 1961.
The flag is described at www.usaid.gov/branding/USAID_GSM_Section_4.pdf as a logo on a white field. The flag itself is 3x5 in ratio. There are also vertical banners used by USAID as described in the linked PDF file (which is a part of a whole identity manual used by USAID).
