Purple and white are the color traditionally associated with Civil Affairs organizations. Gold is emblematic of honor and achievement; the color black underscores strength and determination. The sword and the torch are adapted from the Civil Affairs insignia of branch. The quartered shield represents the four missions of the unit - to conduct civil military cooperation, to reduce civilian interference in military operations, to identify and acquire host nation support, and to advise the commander on legal/moral considerations. The small gold shield at center symbolizes protection for civilians in the transition.
The coat of arms was approved on 15 Jan 1993.
