Symbolism
Oriental blue is the primary color associated with military intelligence. Black and white convey 24-hour military preparedness and indicates the dual nature of intelligence operations. Gold signifies excellence and achievement; red is for valor and zeal. The pole star suggests worldwide services provided by the Field Support Center. The chess knights imply strategy and military preparedness while underscoring the Center's motto. They are supported by five steps portraying the multi-faceted capabilities of the Center. The columns symbolize support.

Background
The distinctive unit insignia was approved on 2 March 1990.
