Now military officials are investigating if the flag-flying equates to misconduct, the network reported.

"Defense Department and Navy regulations prescribe flags and pennants that may be displayed as well as the manner of display," Lt. Jacqui Maxwell, a spokesperson for Naval Special Warfare Group 2, told ABC News. "The flag shown in the video was unauthorized."

Maxwell added to the network that the convoy consisted of "service members assigned to an East Coast-based Naval Special Warfare unit driving vehicles while transiting between two training locations."

Naval Special Warfare Unit is the official Navy term for SEALs, ABC News said.
