WASHINGTON — The U.S. Space Force -- the newest branch of the armed services -- now has its own flag to fly as it goes about protecting American interests on the next frontier.

Defense Department officials presented President Donald Trump with the Space Force flag during a short Oval Office event on Friday.

The dark blue and white flag includes elements intended to evoke the vast recesses of outer space.

The president during Friday's ceremony also said that the U.S. is building a "super-duper missile" that can travel "17 times faster than what we have right now."
