Crimson and gold (yellow) are the colors associated with the Ordnance Corps. The numerical designation of the Battalion is alluded to by the six bezants and three cannons, which refer again to Ordnance. Black denotes strength and solidarity, gold signifies excellence.
The lightning flash, derived from ancient Roman standard-bearers' insignia, symbolizes World War II action in the Rome/Arno region and rapid response to mission needs. The bamboo rods recall the many campaigns in Vietnam in which the unit participated. It is surmounted by a bamboo cross recalling the award of the Republic of Vietnam Cross of Gallantry. The scarlet binding refers to the Meritorious Unit Commendation awarded to the unit for action in Vietnam for the period 1968-1969.
The coat of arms was originally approved for the 63d Ordnance Battalion on 21 September 1942. It was cancelled on 16 November 1976. The insignia was reinstated for the 63d Ordnance Battalion and amended to add a crest and change the motto on 14 October 1997. It was amended to correct the authorizations and blazon and update the symbolism on 28 July 2009.
