That for the regiments and separate battalions of the Kentucky Army National Guard: From a wreath Or and Azure, within a garland trumpet vine clasped hands clothed at the wrists all Proper.
FLAMMA FUMO EST PROXIMA (Fire Follows Smoke).
Cobalt blue and golden yellow are the colors associated with the Army Chemical Corps. The gold pile is symbolic of the impact of chemical warfare on military options. The red dragon (wyvern) is a fire-breathing mystical creature of strength and power. In red, it represents the lineage with the Engineers and current affiliations with the Chemical Corps. The fire and smoke symbolize the fire and destruction of chemical warfare and underscore a play on the unit's motto "Flamma Fumo Est Proxima" meaning "Fire Follows Smoke." The horse head represents heritage with the state of Kentucky and faces the pick which signifies lineage with Engineers and is crossed with the key which denotes lineage with the 38th Military Police Company during World War II.
The crest is that of the Kentucky Army National Guard.
The coat of arms was approved on 28 September 2004.
