Orange and white are colors traditionally associated with the Signal Corps. The two fountains (white and blue wavy discs) in base denote the unit's participation in two Pacific campaigns during World War II. The spliced wires suggest the Battalion's particular function of cable construction, and crossing the black into the bright orange signifies the light of information brought by communications. The two flashes are representative of signals.
The barong, a long knife of the Moros, a native people of the Philippines, and the feathers of the Bird of Paradise, a species indigenous to New Guinea, represent the unit's World War II campaign participation in Luzon and New Guinea. The star and the red and blue areas of the roundel refer to the Meritorious Unit Commendation, and the Presidential Unit Citation, the unit's two decorations.
