The three disks bearing stars represent the three campaign honors awarded the battalion for European service in World War II. The disks also refer to the wheels essential to the transportation mission of the unit. The heraldic spur-rowels (pierced stars) denote the speed and control of transportation facilities. The cornucopias, emblems of abundance and supply, commemorate the organization's participation in the Berlin Airlift and providing transport of food and commodities to distressed German areas. They also allude to the Quartermaster origin of the 6th Transportation Battalion.
Brick red and golden yellow are the colors traditionally used by Transportation. The stylized wheel symbolizes the mission of the unit; the scimitars refer to service in Southwest Asia. The fourteen bamboo spokes represent the unit's Vietnam campaigns; the colors (red, green and yellow) are adapted from the Vietnam streamer. The red on the wheel highlights the unit's Meritorious Unit Commendation.
The coat of arms was approved on 8 September 1998.
