On a scarlet heptagon within 1/8 inch (.32 cm) black border, 3 3/8 inches (8.57 cm) in height and 3 7/16 inches (8.73 cm) in width, a diagonal cross of yellow chain links, left and right, attached in the middle by a yellow ring, all fimbriated green, surmounted by a pair of yellow crossed swords.
Scarlet is the color traditionally used by Support units, with which Installation Management Command (IMCOM) is associated. The heptagon suggests the seven geographic regions overseen and serviced by the organization. The chain links signify durability, while the ring denotes continuous service. The combination of the chain links and ring symbolize the Installation Management Command's continuous worldwide support to all the soldiers, civilians, their families and units. The swords refer to teamwork and the focus on preparing and training soldiers for combat - to defend and protect. Yellow reflects the high honor and values of IMCOM. Green, associated with the agency's parent organization - Assistant Chief of Staff for Installation Management - represents the IMCOM's stewardship of installations.
The shoulder sleeve insignia was approved on 15 August 2002. It was amended to revise the symbolism on 22 November 2005. It was redesignated effective 1 October 2006, for the Installation Management Command with the symbolism revised. (TIOH Drawing Number A-1-850)
