Or on a pale Vert a pallet of the first embattled counter-embattled bretesse charged with two fleurs-de-lis Azure on a chief of the last a lion passant guardant armed and langued Gules and grasping in its dexter paw the astrological symbol of Mars Argent.
That for the regiments and separate battalions of the Maryland Army National Guard: On a wreath of the colors (Or and Vert) a cross bottony per cross quarterly Gules and Argent.
The colors yellow (gold) and green are used for Armor, the yellow embattled pallet simulating a tank track. The two blue fleurs-de-lis refer to the unit's two battle honors during World War I in which it served as Infantry. The unit also served as Infantry in World War II and the chief alludes to the assault landing in Normandy, the lion being taken from the Normandy coat of arms and the symbol of Mars combining the "arrowhead" signifying an assault landing and the annulet which simulates the letter "O" and alludes to "Omaha Beach," the unit's assault area. The color blue refers to the Distinguished Unit Citation awarded the unit and is also the Infantry color.
The crest is that of the Maryland Army National Guard.
The coat of arms was approved on 9 June 1967 and rescinded/cancelled on 13 August 1976.
