Distinctive Unit Insignia

A gold color metal and enamel device 1 1/8 inches (2.86 cm) in diameter consisting of a disc of light blue above and green below with a vertical way bar throughout bearing below center a gold four-pointed star and overall across a brick red and gold bridge of three arches, all within a gold rim issuing two gold spokes towards center.

The wheel represents the transportation mission of the agency. Its association with Europe and its history of Trans-Atlantic activity are referred to by the bridge. The unit's mission as a transportation organization is alluded to by the wavy blue vertical form of the river; and the star recalls the unit's association with the NATO organization. Brick red and gold refer to Transportation. Green, ultramarine blue and light blue, respectively, refer to land, sea and air. The tunnels within the side arches suggest secret movement of materiel, and unorthodox transportation methods.

The distinctive unit insignia was approved on 7 April 1986.
