Blue and white are the colors used for Infantry, the original designation of the unit. The three battle honors awarded the organization for services during World War I are symbolized by the patriarchal cross, which represents Lorraine, where the regiment first entered combat in 1918; the oak tree which alludes to the woods of Meuse-Argonne, the general area of operation in France; and the lion, taken from the arms of Belgium, which represents the Ypres-Lys campaign in 1918.
The crest is that of the U.S. Army Reserve.
The coat of arms was originally authorized for the 361st Infantry Regiment on 19 April 1924. It was redesignated for the 361st Regiment on 24 January 1962.
