Distinctive Unit Insignia

A gold color metal and enamel device 1 1/8 inches (2.86 cm) in height overall consisting of an oval background divided horizontally light blue at the top and blue at base, overall a gold heraldic sunburst charged with a black annulet between two vertical gold bamboo poles all within a voluted brick red scroll inscribed "MISSION" at the top and "MOVEMENT" at base in gold letters.

The sunburst represents the organization's World War II service in the East Indies, Papua and New Guinea. The black annulet alludes to highway and other transportation activities on land; the blue areas represent the air and the sea, symbolizing the unit's mission to control and supervise all U.S. Army Transportation units in the Republic of Korea. The two bamboo poles, symbolic of strength, represent the unit's two decorations, the Distinguished Unit Citation and the Meritorious Unit Commendation; the two poles also distinguish the unit's numerical designation as the 2d Transportation Group. Brick red and golden yellow are colors used for Transportation units.

The distinctive unit insignia was approved on 25 March 1977.
