Trump, who regularly claims he inherited a hollow military, staged the ceremony for the new military service he pushed for in the Oval Office - and claimed the US was ahead of Russian Federation and China.
In photos tweeted out by a Reuters photographer, Trump is seen smiling as the Space Force's senior enlisted leader, Chief Master Sgt. Roger Towberman, holds up the new flag representing the military service charged with carrying out the Pentagon's space-based operations.
During Friday's event, Trump bragged about a "super-duper missile" being developed by the Space Force that is "17 times faster than what we have now".
The flag includes a Delta Wing - long a symbol in the Air Force - meant to signify change and innovation.More news: Government gives green light for English soccer to return in June
As many have previously noted, the Space Force logo looks eerily similar to that of Star Trek's Starfleet Command.
The US Space Force may be a newly formed branch of the Armed Forces, but it is already looking into launching programs for specialized space warfare.
Trump signed the FY 2020 National Defense Authorization Act in December, which created the USSF, announcing also that General John Raymond would be the first chief of space operations for the force.
The ceremonial unveiling of its flag comes as the 5-month-old fleet is accepting applications for eligible active-duty personnel to transfer into the service and as it prepares to dedicate a rocket launch to victims of COVID-19 on Saturday.More news: Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos Could Become World's First Trillionaire by 2026
While the Space Force has been the target of parody, including with a coming Netflix series starring Steve Carrell of "The Office" fame, its proposed budget is no joke.
The US's uncrewed X-37B military spaceplane is expected to launch from Cape Canaveral air force station, in Florida, on 16 May.
The flag also features a globe, for the Space Force fighters' home turf, and an elliptical orbit around the globe was incorporated to signify the force's mission to defend and protect from adversaries and threats emanating in space. The service released a slick new recruiting video last week.
The fleet's new flag was produced by artists at the Defense Logistics Agency, Flag Room in Philadelphia - the same entity that makes the president's personal flags - from a design by the Department's Institute of Heraldry at Fort Belvoir, Virgina, according to the White House.More news: Case of deadly children’s illness linked to COVID at Seattle Children’s
