The Food and Drug Administration is a government entity which protects consumers and patients. Its mission is "to promote and protect the public health by helping safe and effective products reach the market in a timely way, and
monitoring products for continued safety after they are in use. Our work is a blending of law and science aimed at protecting consumers."
According to their online feedback representative, the Food and Drug Administration does not have its own flag. Instead, they use their logo for official display purposes. Logos can be seen here: www.fda.gov/graphics/FDAlogos1999/

FDA does not have its own flag. We fly the American flag and the flag of our parent agency, the Department of Health and Human Services. During FDA's Centennial in 2006, we did fly a flag commemorating the creation of our agency in 1906, but that use was limited to a single year.
