U.S. ARMY CENTER FOR HEALTH PROMOTION AND PREVENTIVE MEDICINE
Distinctive Unit Insignia
A silver color metal and enamel device 1 1/8 inches (2.86cm) in height overall consisting of a maroon triangle bearing at center a silver X-ray tube charged with a silver serpent entwined on a staff, and overall a maroon lamp of learning all issuing out of a silver gear wheel bearing in maroon letters the words "CONSERVARE SALUTEM" at bottom.
The colors maroon and white (silver) are the traditional colors associated with the Army Medical Department. The gear wheel represents hygiene services provided by the unit to the Army's industrial operations. The triangle suggests three areas of environmental health engineering: investigation, evaluation and control. The staff and serpent is a traditional medical symbol. The lamp symbolizes the quest for knowledge and excellence as portrayed in the unit's motto and mission.
The distinctive unit insignia was originally approved for the U.S. Army Environmental Hygiene Agency on 1 Aug 1984. It was redesignated for the U.S. Army Center for Health Promotion and Preventive Medicine on 2 Nov 1995.
