The NCC flag for various units of the NCC was first introduced in 1951. The flag was of same pattern, color and size as was used by various regiments of the Army.

In 1954 the existing tricolor flag was introduced. The three colors in the flag depict the three services of the Corps, red for the Army, deep blue for the Navy and light blue for the Air Force.
