The shield of the coat of arms of the former 18th Engineer Regiment, differenced by a border, is used to indicate the descent of the 62nd Engineer Battalion from that organization. The shield is in the colors of the Corps of Engineers. The trestle is emblematic of the technical duties of the battalion.
The white wavy bar crossing the disc at center symbolizes the battalion's service on the Alcan Highway during World War II which earned them their first award of the Meritorious Unit Commendation; later while serving in Korea from 1950-1951 and from 1952-1953 they were twice more awarded the Commendation as suggested by the scarlet and blue disc at center, a symbol adapted from the national flag of the Republic of Korea. The crossed bamboo sections allude to the battalion's service in Vietnam where they also received three Meritorious Unit Commendations. The wreath of rice stalks in scarlet and green represents the Vietnamese Civil Action Honor Medal, First Class, awarded to the battalion for service during 1967-1970.
The coat of arms was approved on 20 July 1954. It was amended to add a crest on 15 March 1973.
