The AEC flag we have in storage is the seal on a white background with gold fringe.
Holly Harrington, 21 May 2008
The flag of the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission (AEC), which existed 1946-1975 and was the predecessor of the Department of Energy and Nuclear Regulatory Commission. The flag was white, with the color AEC seal on it. The ring of the seal, lettering, and the electrons and their orbits in gold, center at the nucleus in red, and the center under the seal navy blue (like the blue of the NARA flag), the ring under the lettering is a lighter blue (I would use the blue in the current Dept. of Energy flag).
Below is a link to AEC seal in b/w:
