Blue and yellow are the colors associated with the Chemical Corps. The double six sided rings represent the benzene ring, a symbol taken from the Chemical Branch insignia. The inner blue disc invected twenty-seven times suggests a cloud and denotes the unit's lineage as descendant from the 27th Chemical Smoke Generator Battalion. The swords reflect the battalion's valor in three World War II service campaigns. The griffin is symbolic of the unit's spirit as the griffin is a vigilant and alert heraldic beast, always ready to defend.
The crest is that of the United States Army Reserve.
The coat of arms was approved effective 16 September 2000.
