The colors green and yellow are for the Military Police. The organization's World War II service in the European Theater is symbolized by the fleurs-de-lis and in North Africa by the palm tree. The Airlift Monument, erected in the Western Sector of Berlin, is used to represent the 759th Military Police Battalion's participation in the Berlin Airlift.
The Military Police branch is represented by the colors, green and yellow (gold). The fortified gateway and the eagle on guard upon it refer to the unit motto, Tenez La Porte, meaning "Hold the Gate, Door or Entrance." The eagle symbolizes the United States, its interest and security. The gateway also refers to fortified Europe during World War II during which the unit participated with distinction in operations in Italy, France, the Rhineland and Central Europe. The fleur-de-lis recalls specifically action in Southern France, for which the unit gained particular note. The wreath signifies honor and achievement. Gold denotes excellence.
The coat of arms was originally approved on 2 Oct 1952. It was amended to add a crest on 13 Sep 1999.
