Gold represents excellence and achievement and refers also to the traditional branch color, buff. Scarlet, the second branch color, denotes courage and sacrifice. The chevron division of the shield symbolizes support. The hexagonal benzene ring, flames and the lightning flashes refer to the various elements essential to the mission: chemical and radiological processes and speedy response and implementation. The shield and spear allude to military protective equipment and to Pallas Athene, goddess of guidance and military assistance and a seal of California symbol, the unit's original home state.
The crest is that of the U.S. Army Reserve.
The coat of arms was approved on 23 February 2006.
