Distinctive Unit Insignia

A gold color metal and enamel device 1 1/8 inches (2.86 cm) in height consisting of a gold heraldic mural crown charged with a black rampant bear on a gold panel, surmounting a keystone divided from upper left to lower right with white at right and teal blue at left, bearing at center a white and teal blue counterchanged globe with gold gridlines divided diagonally overall by an orange flash extending from upper left to lower right of the keystone; all above a gold and teal blue scroll inscribed with the words "ON WATCH" in teal blue.

The keystone suggests the unit's key position in the global intelligence network. The mural crown and the black bear are adapted from the Arms of the City of Berlin and allude to the unit's home area and further suggest that divided city's wall and the need for constant surveillance. The globe and the color teal blue suggest the unit's affiliation with INSCOM and are counterchanged in reference to the day/night mission of the unit and its motto. Orange and white are the colors associated with signal units and allude to the Field Station's history as a signal unit. The flash symbolizes the electronics functions of the unit.

The distinctive unit insignia was approved on 30 July 1984.
